‘Something needs to be done’, this seems to be the feeling among many clubs, even top ones, and nowhere is this more evident than at Bayern Munich.
I have already had contact with the new UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin and I feel he wants to start a new attempt at the European Commission
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, the club’s CEO told FAZ, referring to a talk he had with the UEFA president regarding taking steps into introducing a salary cap in European football, something that at the moment is against EU regulations.
It is a good idea that football should also have a special status for the introduction of salary caps. I believe that after the Neymar case, the readiness to do so in the EU could be greater
the German football legend said, voicing his concern over the… insane amounts of money surrounding Neymar’s move to Paris Saint-Germain. The French club paid Barcelona Neymar’s full release clause, €222 million, while the Brazilian himself will be making €600,000 per week (after tax).
Bayern, along with other top clubs, and of course many smaller ones, are concerned that the situation is getting out of control, and that the Financial Fair Play (FFP) is no longer working (if it ever did).
