Juventus players and staff agree to three- month pay freeze during coronavirus crisis
Juventus players and staff have agreed to their pay being stopped for four months in a bid to save the Serie A side €90m.
Italy has been the worst affected country in the world during the pandemic with more than 10,000 deaths, nearly twice as many as any other nation.
And while all sport has been suspended until April 3, that is expected to be extended as the country looks to prevent further mass casualties.
In a statement on the club website, they said: "The understanding provides for the reduction of the compensation for an amount equal to the monthly payments of March, April, May and June 2020. In the coming weeks, personal agreements with the players and the coach will be finalised, as required by the current regulations.
"The economic and financial effects of the understanding reached are positive for about EUR 90 million for the 2019/2020 financial year.
"Should the current season's matches be rescheduled, the Club will negotiate in good faith with the players and the coach conditional increases of compensations according to the actual resumption and finalisation of official competitions.
"Juventus would like to thank the players and the coach for their commitment at a difficult time for everyone."
A number of Juventus players have tested positive for COVID-19, including star forward Paulo Dybala.
