The president of LaLiga, Javier Thebes, has not tired to defend in the last times the best public prosecutors that needs the Spanish championship to be able to compete with other leagues like the Premier League and the Bundesliga, 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.

Javier Thebes has ensured in several occasions that Spain is the most expensive country for the professional footballers, and this is definitely a hándicap to the hour to boost the arrival of new 'cracks' to the competition, or to keep to which already are in her. "We can not follow like this if we want to keep the mark Spain", has clear the maximum mandator of the championship.

Well, in question of days LaLiga will happen to have a new threat, and calls Series To. And it is that, except surprises, in ten days will do valid a fiscal reform that will convert to the Series To in "competitor to the level of Spain, the Premier and the Bundesliga", as it stood out this Wednesday Javier Thebes, during an event of New Economy Forum, where coincided with the partner cofounder of Mediapro, Jaume Roures.

Up to now, in Italy 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 of how could affect said reform to the Spanish football, 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", concluded the director of LaLiga, pessimistic with the situation that avecina.

Thebes sustains that 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 a greater profitability of his income in the Premier League or, inside very little, also in the Series To.

Substantial advantages for the footballers of the Series To

From the fiscal reform planned 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, a formula that would apply during at all less than the first five years.

This type of measures follow causing headaches to Javier Thebes, although they still have not checked his negative effects in Spain. Surely they will notice more when big present stars at present in the Spanish football, as Leo Messi, Luis Suárez or Sergio Bouquets, hang the boots and leave step to the youngest. Arrived the moment, will follow accepting the 'cracks' fichar by Spanish teams?
