What are the pensions of the Italian footballers?
The 2018-19 Serie A season has seen some remarkable performances and a host of players have been named in the FFP Player of the Year.
One of them, a young Italian player named Simone Varela, will now turn 19 in November.
He has already earned a contract worth over €25m.
The next year he will be making his debut for Juventus, and it’s expected he will start at the club.
If not, the contract could be worth €5m, which would be the equivalent of Varella’s current wages.
This is just the start of a big salary gap between Vareella and his team-mates.
Varello has already turned 19, and he’s only going to get better.
He is the young Italian talent of the 2018-2019 season, and a massive investment in him will be rewarded.
