ROME — Serie A clubs spent nearly 30 percent less on player agent fees in 2017 compared to 2016.

The Italian football federation released details on agent fees on Monday, and the 20 Serie A clubs spent a total of 138 million euros ($170 million) last year compared to 193 million euros the year before.

Six-time defending champion Juventus again led the way by spending 42 million euros on agents, followed by Champions League semifinalist Roma with 23 million euros.

AC Milan, which overhauled its entire squad, spent 21 million euros, while Inter Milan made a drastic drop from the 23.4 million euros it spent in 2016 to little more than 3.2 million euros last year.

Promoted Spal was the only club not to break the million euro barrier, spending a league-low 98,750 euros.

Serie A players, meanwhile, spent a total of 10.5 million euros on agent fees.
