Rich football clubs could face star player tax
Richest clubs could face a tax on player spending above a certain limit
Rich football clubs could be forced to pay a luxury tax on their star
players, according to a UEFA proposal.
The structure could follow the lead of US sports, where spending on players
above a certain limit would be taxed then redistributed to less wealthy clubs.
UEFA spokesman William Gaillard said that alternative plans around cost
restraint were difficult to implement, and tax or squad limits were ‘more
promising ideas’, reported the FT.
