Inter Milan will be able to count on the Growth Decree to complete the signing of Tajon Buchanan on more favorable terms.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport via FcInterNews, the Italian government will extend the application of the Growth Degree for another two months.
The pink newspaper expects the decision to be announced today.
This rule allows Italian clubs to save 50% on taxes related to wages when signing players from abroad.
In recent months, the government decided to abolish the rule starting from 2024. However, Serie A clubs pleaded with the prime minister to reconsider the decision.
The source now expects the government to extend the application of the decree until February 29th. This would give the authorities the chance to review the rule and make a decision on the matter upon further discussions.
In any case, the two-month extension is music to the ears of Inter Milan directors.
The Nerazzarri are working on signing Tajon Buchanan from Club Brugge in January. The 24-year-old would serve as a replacement for the injured Juan Cuadrado.
Inter Milan To Take Advantage Of Growth Decree To Save On Tajon Buchanan Wages
The Italian giants are making significant progress on this front. They are now in pole position in the race for the Canadian’s services.
Therefore, the extension of the Growth Decree is a significant boost that could bring Inter closer to sealing a deal for Buchanan.
The right winger currently plies his trade at Club Brugge and has never played in Italy before. Therefore, he’s eligible for the Growth Decree, meaning that the Nerazzurri will be able to save on his gross salary.
Earlier this week, reports claimed that the Serie A leaders already have an agreement in place with the player but are still seeking an accord with the Belgian club.
