For several years now, Atlético fans and members of the Spanish press alike were under the impression that fully half (50 per cent) of Atleti’s transfer income had to be handed over to Spain’s tax authorities as part of a levy imposed to collect on past-due taxes. AS reveals, however, that is not the case.
The dust has yet to settle on another league season, but Atleti has begun to plan for many to come. Today the club started a new project, starting with the presentation of the new directors in charge of our footballing future. Enrique Cerezo presented José Luis Caminero as the new Sporting Director and Carlos Aguilera as the head of our youth department to the press on Monday morning.
