Friedkins aiming to lower Roma’s wage bill by 10-15%

Roma are beginning their much talked about summer revolution.

Among other topics of interest, the capital club will address the matter of their notoriously elevated wage bill.

As recounted by La Gazzetta dello Sport, Roma currently hold the third highest wage bill in Serie A with a total amount of €104.7 million spent on players’ salaries.

The newspaper states that Roma will tackle this issue right away as soon as the season ends on Sunday.

Dan Friedkin has made it his priority to lower the club’s wage bill by 10-15%, getting rid of players whose scarce output does not match their earnings.

Through the exits of the likes of Spinazzola, Rui Patricio, Lukaku, Azmoun, Kristensen, Renato Sanches, Dean Huijsen, Rick Karsdorp, Nicola Zalewski and Diego Llorente, Roma will have set up the foundation for a more sustainable wage bill.

This will also pertain to the duties of new sporting director Florent Ghisolfi.
