Here’s why De Ligt cannot join Barcelona until 2021

Matthijs De Ligt is maybe thinking about deleting his Juventus career after a poor start, with a host of clubs like Barcelona on the fence, but it might not be an easy move.

In the past couple of weeks, there were rumors circulating that the Blaugrana could make a move for the player once again. However, it is very likely that the Catalan club will have to wait at least until 2021 to make a move for the Dutch star.

The reason for this, as reported by the Daily Mail, is Italy's new tax law passed in 2019 guaranteed that only 50% of De Ligt's salary is taxed.

But there is a catch: this benefit applies only in case the player spends at least 2 years in Italy, with a move abroad resulting in a penalty for the Bianconeri, who would have to pay all the pardoned taxes from the period up until the potential sale.

For this reason, 2021 will be the year in which Barcelona could make a serious attempt to bring the defender to the Nou Camp but before that, it seems unlikely, as Juventus would like to avoid the above-mentioned problem.
