According to the reports coming out from Italy about the clubs’ latest wage structures, many note-worthy facts have come forward as a proof that why the Italian clubs are lacking in European elite competitions from the past 5 years. But as they say now money matters, this is the most important fact in the decline of Italian League over the last 5 years.
Paul Pogba is earning just 23k pounds per week from Juventus, less than what Glen Johnson is earning at Liverpool.
While we have no desire to harm anyone, still the recent report made public by the Italian out fits suggests the league is lacking well behind from what they were making in 2009. While Wayne Rooney is the highest earner in the Premier League with 280k a week, it is depressing to note certainly for the Italians that the highest wage earner in Serie A is De-Ross with 100k a week, which is actually less than what Fernando Torres was earning at Chelsea.
Wayne Rooney is earning three times the money, as compared to a Serie A top earner in Danielle De Rossi.
Talking about Asia and Africa and other continents where there is less scope for football than Europe, it is now clear why the foreigners like Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Angel di Maria prefer English Premier League, In addition the most globally watched league in the World, it is the salaries that influence stars from around the World to make to be a part of this League.
Fernando Torres will be earning 61k per week at AC Milan, he used to earn 175k a week at West London during his Chelsea stay. Similar are the cases for both Nemanja Vidic and Ashley Cole who will be earning exceptionally low at their new sides.
In an un-surprising turn of events after the above mentioned facts, the top 3 earners in Serie A are earning a combined total of 254k pounds per week which is less than what Rooney has been, and Radamel Falcao will be earning alone in the Premier League. So if you were wondering why the reverse circle started when star players started to move from La Liga to Premier League, no stone has been left un-turned now.
