An Italian journalist has explained the figures that make it more understandable as to why the three Italian teams tried to join the Super League earlier this year, according to a report on social media.
A journalist for Sole 24 Ore, Marco Bellinazzo, tweeted some very interesting figures on Thursday morning that shed some more light on why Juventus, AC Milan, and Inter attempted to join the breakaway league.
He explained that between 2020 and 2021, which contained the two coronavirus pandemic-affected season, those three teams lost roughly €300 million each.
That figure is the same as the amount that they would have all received as a one off payment from the Super League had the project gone ahead.
This makes it much more understandable, from a purely business perspective, why the teams made the move that they did.
They did not, however, take into account how the fans would feel about such a move.
Tra il 2020 e il 2021, nelle due stagioni della pandemia, @juventusfc @Inter e @acmilan hanno perso circa 900 milioni. Più o meno 300 milioni a testa, vale a dire quanto avrebbero incassato una tantum aderendo alla #SuperLeague.
I numeri rendono più chiare scelte e resistenze
