Since the coronavirus outbreak started, many clubs have been dealing with economic crisis. Asked whether the Bianconeri can afford five-time Ballon d'Or winner’s €31m-a-year salary next season, Paratici replied:
“Last week, I said we must be responsible for what we’re doing. We are facing a period of uncertainty.
