Lega Serie A have officially announced that the Serie A clubs have unanimously decided to cut wages by 30% due to the coronavirus emergency in Italy that has brought life to a standstill. The measure being introduced will see players forfeit a third (1/3) of their wages if the season does not go ahead. If play resumes later on, players will only forfeit a sixth (1/6) of their annual wage.

The agreement exists between all the Serie A clubs except Juventus who resolved this issue internally last week. The wage forfeitures will be in gross terms. AC Milan had a wage bill of 115 million euros at the start of the season (the figure has changed since the January transfer window moves).
