Concern for Juventus: Italian justice is investigating dozens of suspicious transfers, the figures for which have been inflated to achieve capital gains. Searches took place this Friday.
Italian justice on Friday raided the offices of Juventus as part of an investigation into many transfers deemed suspicious and during which the Old Lady would have “inflated” the figures in order to realize a capital gain. Among these transfers, the Pjanic-Arthur exchange is one of the most cited examples: FC Barcelona had bought the Bosnian median against 60 million euros, and Juventus spent 72 million for the Brazilian, sums beyond measure with the value of both players.
These fraudulent practices would have taken place during three seasons (2018-2019, 2019-2020 and 2020-2021) and six Turin leaders would be concerned, including President Andrea Agnelli and Vice-President Pavel Nedved.
