For weeks now, the Juventus headquarters in Turin have been regularly visited by the police. The northern Italian team is being investigated by the transalpine country’s prosecutor’s office for alleged irregularities in their capital gains and economic accounts and, yesterday afternoon, it was the turn of the soccer player transfer section. The security forces once again raided the team’s offices to look for irregularities in one of the transfers of the summer, that of Cristiano Ronaldo Manchester United, estimated at 15 million euros.
The authorities are looking for a document related to the sale of the Portuguese star that, according to them, would put Juventus in a bind, despite the fact that for now said file has not appeared.
The team assures that the transfer was made legitimately and they argue that this investigation will not harm the capital increase of 400 million that the entity announced a few months ago.
According to Italian media, the police are looking for the document due to a conversation between Federico Cherubini (sports director) and Cesare Gabasio (club lawyer) in which they both talked about him. “If that document is discovered we have … They attack us in the throat”, was heard in the talk, which was intercepted in a wiretap by the police. In addition to Cherubini, Andrea Agnelli (president), Pavel Nedved (vice president), Fabio Paratici (former sports director), Stefano Cerrato (Manager of the Corporation), Stefano Bertola (former financial manager) and Marco Re (former director) are also being investigated.
