Players chief Damiano Tommasi said: “There will be one more element on the table compared to previous weeks, because after the words of Minister Spadafora, there’s concern that the season will end here.

“It’s therefore necessary to tackle the problem of ending the season from a sporting point of view and a contractual one; in short, formally.

“As for cutting wages, we seek, if possible, a common solution. Juve moved forward, but what they did didn’t take us by surprise.

“We knew all about it and we don’t feel delegitimised. Among other things, Chiellini is our advisor.

“If there are no disputes between clubs and players, we’re not required to intervene. If they’ve found an agreement, that's fine.”
