The signing of Mathijjs of Ligt by the Juventus is imminent to the eyes of the international press, and there is not an only reason by which the Dutch have decided to leave to Italy. In the 'Vecchia Signora' will struggle by important titles -included the Champions League-, will have the possibility to be indisputable headline -no as in the Barça to day of today- and to this it is necessary to join him another reason of weight: the arrival of the 'Law Beckham' Italian

The president of LaLiga, Javier Thebes, already warned on the best public prosecutors that needs the Spanish championship to compete with other leagues like the Premier League, with a lot of more financial eases to attract to the big emergent stars, already was in concept of reduction of taxes for the players or of greater television rights for the teams.

Well, now LaLiga raisin to have a new threat, and calls Series To. And it is that the Parliament of Italy is to hours to approve a fiscal reform that will convert to the Calcium in "competitor to the level of Spain, the Premier and the Bundesliga", as already pregonó Javier Thebes during an event of New Economy Forum, made does some weeks.

Up to now, in the neighbouring country the taxation was much more desfavorable for the foreign footballers, but the panorama will change with the entrance in force of the 'Law Beckham' Italian. To do us an idea, Thebes put an example: "a foreign footballer that win one million will pay 45.000 euros in taxes in Italy, when in Spain credits 450.000 ofaverage . We can not follow like this if we want to keep the mark Spain".

The big European leagues follow adopting measured to attract foreign talent, whereas in Spain these fiscal reforms are toughening , and complicate the presence of the big stars in the championship when can obtain these a greater profitability of his income in the Premier League or, from now, also in the Series To.

With the fiscal reform in Italy, besides, a person that have not resided in the two last years in the country -have or no the Italian nationality-, and that have foreseen to keep his fiscal residence there during at least two years, will be able to have of succulent advantages like tributar so only by 30% of his income, and until 10% in the south of the country.

Matthijs Of Ligt, the first example... Of how many?

This type of measures will cause a lot of headaches to the clubs of LaLiga, and the imminent course of Matthijs of Ligt to the Juventus is the first example. How many will follow to the Dutch in the coming summers? Surely they will notice more when big present stars at present in the Spanish football, as Leo Messi, Luis Suárez or Hazard, hang the boots and leave step to the youngest. Arrived the moment, it will be necessary to analyse if LaLiga is able to follow competing to the same level that the Premier League and, from this time on, the Series To.
