Non-EU players in Italy problem

Hi guys,
I know this might be a problem that has been already discussed, but I still can't find the solution.

The thing is: I manage Pescara in Serie A and I only had one non-EU player registered last season. At the start of the new season, I brought in another one and hope there will be no problem to register him for the upcoming campaign. But there is still this "Ine" thing next to his name and it says "extra non-EU player that cant be registered until the new season or until a non-EU player slot is freed up".

Why? I only bought one non-EU player this season.

I bought two of them last season, but registered only one - the other one only played for Under20s and I released him for free now.

So I only have 2 non-EU players in club and I can't register the new one... I tried to unregister the first player and even after that I wasn't able to register the new one.

Do you think there is a solution?
One of main aspects why I don't play Serie A saves anymore... from all top leagues this restriction is even worse than work permits in UK. I suggest to load database in FM editor, and remove this rule/change it to more player friendly.
Did you buy them all inside one calendar year?

If that's the case then I don't think you can register the 3rd player until the date you bought the first goes past one calendar year.

Could be wrong on that though.
No - I bought one in the start of the summer transfer window (the transfer was arranged for the end of the season), the other one in September. And the third one was again arranged for the start of new season. I dont remember when exactly I made a bid for him, but the transfer realized at the start of summer transfer window again. So he should be the only non-EU player a bought this calendar year and also this season.
I like playing Serie A, I respect the rules, I just try to understand them :))
