In essence, it is a salary cap that is tailored to each individual club. Granted, this rule will only affect those clubs who have European aspirations. For many leagues, this will affect about half the teams in the league. An example of American league level salary cap is MLS where each team have $2.55 mil to spend players. Or NFL league level salary cap where each team have $127 million to spend on players. NHL where teams can spend at most $65 million and NBA where teams can spend at most $75 million, though a $1:1 luxury tax is allowed for teams who want to exceed the cap.
