I have a future date with 10 free days given and I need a plan date based on future date -(minus) 10 free days but the returning plan date must in working day.

In the counting of days, the first day is excluded while the last day is included, such that in your example, 28-Apr-2019 minus 10 days = 18-Apr-2019, which is the tentative plan date. So, if the future date is in A1, the formula for the plan date in B1 is:
=WORKDAY(A1-10,
--OR(WEEKDAY(A1-10)={1,7},COUNTIF(Holidays,A1-10)>0),
Holidays)
Note that Holidays refer to the defined name of the range containing the holidays.
