Serie A clubs, including Milan, received unfavorable news as the government opted not to extend the Growth Decree until February 29, 2024, contrary to earlier expectations. The Corriere della Sera, as reported by PianetaMilan, highlights that this decision will force Italian clubs to adjust their transfer strategies, impacting the upcoming winter transfer window scheduled from January 2 to January 31, 2024.

The absence of extended tax benefits for clubs acquiring players from abroad increases the overall financial commitment needed to sign international players, posing challenges for teams like Milan. Milan, which made 10 summer signings, mostly from overseas, may find it challenging to replicate such a strategy.

The report notes Milan’s interest in Serhou Guirassy for the upcoming transfer window. However, Guirassy’s demand for a €5 million net annual salary to leave Stuttgart, without the advantages of the Growth Decree, significantly raises Milan’s financial burden to almost €10 million gross per year, compared to just under €7.5 million.

Complicating matters further, Premier League teams, specifically Manchester United and Tottenham, are reportedly willing to offer a higher net salary to Guirassy. Consequently, the prospect of Guirassy joining Milan appears to be a complex and challenging situation.
