These are therefore new rules made to prevent clubs from accumulating players and then lending a large number without there necessarily being a sporting logic.

It can also limit certain agreements that “distort” the market a little with several sales made to set up loans.

There were clubs more than twenty players loaned per season (especially in Serie A), it was of course far too much.

The rules include:

The requirement of a written agreement defining the terms of the loan, in particular its duration and financial conditions. The agreement should include a minimum loan duration, and a maximum loan duration – being one year.
