The difficulty is that Juventus are asking a few of their highest earners to take a pay lower to slot in with their new wage capping scheme, however the participant is reluctant to take action.
This put a lot of Europe’s prime golf equipment on alert, together with United. And in accordance with Calciomercato.it, United have already enquired however have balked on the wage – believed to be €12 million a 12 months (just below £200,000 per week).
