talian publication Corriere della Sera report the shower of cancelled subscriptions will create an ‘unprecedented financial abyss’ in the first massive blow to paid-for TV subscriptions in Italian football history.

Sole24Ore add that circa £275-a-year is obtained from an average single subscriber across the course of the season, meaning with 500,000 cancellations, the TV companies would lose around £136m.

With the latest Italian Football Federation report from 2020-21 indicating 47 per cent of broadcasters’ total revenue comes from those subscriptions, fans abandoning them in droves would be a short-circuit for the entire Serie A system.

It is expected there will be more cancellations to come amid continuing protest on social media, with the hashtags #DisdettaDAZN and #DisdettaSky (disdetta meaning cancel) trending on Twitter and receiving more than 11,000 tweets in a few hours.

Corriere del Mezzogiorno report that in the region of Puglia, largely made up on Juve fans, there have been 13,000 cancellations in just 24 hours, a practice which could become the default stance across southern Italy.

Juventus is the most-supported team in Italy, with more than 8.73m fans out of around 14m in total.

It is believed that the Citizens are only prepared to pay €65m (£59m) for the 29-year-old but Napoli won’t sell up for anything less than €75m (£68m) to €80m (£72m).

Koulibaly, who has been linked with Liverpool and Manchester United this summer, is believed to be City’s top target to reinforce the centre of defence, and fans on Twitter are calling on the club to get the deal over the line:

 

City are likely to be mindful of Koulibaly’s age, as well as the fact that transfer prices have been hit by the financial impact of the global health crisis.

However, Napoli know they are dealing with a club who can afford to spend big, and it looks as though a game of poker is being played out. We shall have to wait and see who blinks first.
