Inter could be free to spend big in the transfer market again with UEFA planning to relax Financial Fair Play rules, according to a report in Germany.
German magazine Der Spiegel says UEFA intend to give clubs greater scope for so-called ‘virtuous investments’, which would include allowing teams to splash more cash on signings.
Whereas clubs can only make unrestricted investments at present on projects like new stadiums and training facilities, the radical revamp of FFP would enable Inter and their fellow European giants to make their squads bigger and better with ‘unlimited’ spending.
This change of policy would come as a result of the proposed new UEFA Champions League format, to be introduced from 2024, with teams needing larger squads to cope with the increased number of group stage matches.
FFP’s only current rules to remain under the new terms would be those relating to compiling squad lists for European competition, the report explained.
Germany’s football league (the DFL) are said to be against the reforms, having sent UEFA a document to remind them of the importance of guaranteeing clubs’ long-term financial stability.
