Juventus are under investigation over capital gain case along with false accounting but the club remain calm over it.
Multiple sources reported that this weekend Guardia di Finanza visited Juve’s headquarters at Continassa to gather necessary information and documents. The Bianconeri are suspected of making capital gains over several transfers between 2018 to 2021.
The case was first investigated by CONSOB and COVISOC but has now reached Turin Public Prosecutor. It seems that Juventus chiefs, President Andrea Agnelli, Vice President Pavel Nedved, and ex-director Federico Cherubini are suspected of committing false accounting.
Despite the seemingly serious accusation, according to La Stampa (via Juventusnews24), there’s a calm atmosphere at Continassa. The Bianconeri’s management doesn’t look to show any panic and only focus on their weekend clash against Atalanta.
Although it’s not a simple case, capital gain in football is always a complex matter that won’t be easy to handle. The reason is the fact that there’s no real objective or parameter to decide on players’ value up til now.
This means that two teams involved in transfers can always decide how much do the players cost.
If they were found guilty, the most likely punishment for Juve would be a points deduction or a fine. Meanwhile, for the false accounting, there’s a possibility of jail time if they are proven guilty.
