Chiellini reportedly believes that the new conditions will provide much-needed gesturing and responsibility during the health emergency that has plagued Italy in particular.
A large number of Juventus players got great deals on signing, with former Manchester United and Real Madrid superstar Ronaldo unsurprisingly being their highest earner.

Sportsmail reported on Thursday that the senior members of the squad ended up with a proposed 70 percent cut in wages where President Josep Maria Bartomeu was looking for a more favorable compromise.
However, the Barcelona board has decided to continue and cut player wages without obtaining player approval, Marca reports.
With FIFA advocating that clubs reduce their players' wages by 50 percent while matches are stopped, Barcelona has taken the incentive to lower their team's wages.
A statement from the Barcelona board explained that, as players' working hours have been shortened, their wages should also decrease.
During the move, some of the leading stars of the Catalan club, who are currently isolating themselves at home, will suffer a massive dent in their earnings.
Barcelona has some of the highest paid players in the world, including Lionel Messi, who pay a whopping £ 500,000 a week before tax, excluding bonuses or image rights.

They were desperate to be the first club to cross the $ 1 billion mark for revenue and even included the unpredictable revenue stream of player sales in their financial plans, with around $ 120 million as the amount the club could yield all season long by selling its stars.
Even without the coronavirus crisis, the club was on track not to achieve its ambitious goal.

& # 39; I have followed him properly since then. I have watched him a lot and know what he is.
& # 39; He ticks many boxes and I am happy that we are in a position where we can say that he will be out of the player next season. & # 39;
Ajax is currently three points clear in the top of the Eredivisie, in which Ziyech has 12 assists and six goals so far this season.
