Playful Team FIFA on Wednesday approved a set of rules governing the transfer of players. It aims to reduce agent commissions starting from the 2020-2021 season and loaning players to foreign clubs.
Inflation OF Commissions
In the face of the inflation of commissions of some agents, the committee “partners” FIFA decided to limit the commission rate of 6% of the total value of the transition.
This commission can be up to 10% paid by the seller’s club to the agent who negotiated the transfer agreement by the club he appointed.
The International Federation will re-grant agent licenses issued by local associations.
According to a confidential document seen by AFP
For FIFA, the current regulatory framework for agents is “producing undesirable results”, with the market-dominating “speculation, not solidarity.”
In 2016, Dutch agent Mino Raiola received 27 million euros from Juventus for a transfer of more than 100 million euros for French midfielder Paul Pogba to Manchester United, more than 25% of commissions.
For better supervision, these commissions will pay to a clearinghouse set up by FIFA before being paid to agents. This chamber will also responsible for the payment of training compensation to clubs in which the players raised.
