The Milan Finance Police’s economic-financial unit was at the Rome offices of the Commission for the supervision of football clubs (COVISOC), which is located at the headquarters of the Italian Football Federation, on the morning of February 8th. The goal was to acquire documentation related to 62 transfer market operations between 2019 and 2021 involving various Italian clubs including Juventus, Inter, and Napoli.
In the COVISOC report, there was concerns about the movement of players as reported by Calciomercato.com. The report is now in the hands of the federal prosecutor who will have to assess the situation to investigate the details and whether it merits an investigation or not. The financial police’s operation was started by the deputy prosecutor Maurizio Romanelli and prosecutor Giovanni Polizzi regarding the alleged irregular capital gains made by Inter, whose headquarters were searched on December 21 last year.
Juventus is no stranger to investigations after many accusations from the FIGC with situations regarding the Arthur Melo and Miralem Pjanic swap deal, the cheating passport test scandal with Luis Suarez, and plusvalenza (capital gains) deals. For now, it is a wait-and-see situation and the club remains focused for each upcoming game, with the next game coming up against Sassuolo in the Coppa Italia quarterfinals.
