Another action that could have been linked to the other plan of limiting player’s loans could have been the practices of Juventus and Udinese who are renowned for owning large numbers of players only to loan them out to other clubs.
Infantino said: “It is important to include certain rules, such as limiting the number of players a club can own and loan out,”
A salary cap for players is also likely to be introduced, as Infantino added that; “the trend to be worrying, which is reason enough to act. We must protect the values that made football what it is.”
