The A series lives a real earthquake after the Turin Prosecutor’s Office has begun to investigate the accounts of Juventus due to an alleged manipulation of capital gains from the purchase and sale of players in recent years. The facilities of the Bianconeri team were searched for several hours by the Italian police while the media assure that the scandal could hit the figure of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Little more than a month has passed since Calcio e Finanza unveiled documents showing the different fiscal operations of a Juventus in Turin in which the sports director Federico Cherubini was interrogated by the Piedmont authorities for 9 hours yesterday. The investigation continues and does not only target the directors of Vecchia Signora.
La Gazzetta dello Sport assures that Andrea Agnelli, Pavel Nedved, Stefano Cerrato, former sports director Fabio Paratici, Marco Re and Stefano Bertola will be questioned by the police in the next few hours to find out the true legality of the team’s fiscal operations, but the thing goes much further.
From the media they point out that the club’s telephone calls with different city prosecutors from the city of Turin will also be collected as evidence, as well as the documents signed by the agents of the players who were signed by the club in the last three years. Yes, Mino Raiola and Jorge Mendes will be part of an investigation that aims to be historical.
The representative of Cristiano Ronaldo will have to demonstrate like all Juventus that the promissory notes, contracts, agreements for image rights and capital gains from the signing of the Portuguese by the Piedmont team fall within a totally legal framework. Calcio is shaken by a scandal that they fear will reach Italian politics. Operations for more than 282 million euros are currently being analyzed by the Turin Prosecutor’s Office.
