Juventus players agree to waive four months' wages to tune of £80M

Juventus players have agreed to waive four months' wages in a boost to the club's financial management amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Cristiano Ronaldo and his team-mates, along with manager Maurizio Sarri, have agreed to a reduction in pay 'equal to the monthly payments of March, April, May and June 2020', the club said.

The agreement is set to be worth around 90 million euros (£80million) to the reigning champions.

Football in Italy is suspended with the country in lockdown and it remains to be seen whether the Serie A season will be completed.

If the remaining games are rescheduled, Juventus said they would negotiate increases in pay for the squad.
