“Worse than that there is only Calciopoli“. Among the files of wiretapping that the investigators of the Turin Public Prosecutor’s Office collected as part of the “Prisma” investigation on the capital gains of the Juventus club, according to the newspaper “The Republic“Men close to Agnelli also exclaimed this sentence that photographs the severity of the Turin prosecutor’s office in photographing a sick football system. Yes, because from what transpires from Covisoc environments it continues to repeat that sporting justice at national level is not only investigating Juventus but many clubs. Probably a dozen, between Serie A and Serie B, involved in the list of 42 capital gains ended up under the magnifying glass. And the impression is that even in the public prosecutors’ offices of other cities, investigations similar to those on Juventus will be launched to dig into the turbulence of this branched and gangrenous system.

A DAY AGO
I know of Naples and the Osimhen affair (the Nigerian center forward was valued 50 million plus the sale of Karnezis and a further 20 million with the cards of three Primavera Manzi, Liguori and Palmieri who never moved to Lille, and ended up living in Serie C or D) already mentioned in recent days, according to The Republic, the list of clubs on which the Prosecutor’s Office will shine with “fictitious” capital gains includes at least four other Serie A clubs: Genoa, Sampdoria, Inter e Atalanta.
The umpteenth testimony that this type of expedient to make the budgets better, not only Juventus used them but various clubs of our football. Genoa has had extremely privileged market relations with the Bianconeri in recent years, circulating – writes the Roman daily – about “123 million euros in transfers”, with solo 25 million that fueled the coffers. The Republic underlines how the 74 million spent to take players from Genoa have earned Juve the misery of 14 league appearances. If not completely artificial operations, certainly short-sighted.
Since 2018, the Ligurian club has also carried out six operations with Inter for a total value of 78 million: three from the rossoblùs to the Nerazzurri and three who traveled in the opposite direction. In fact, however, of these 78 million, only 5 actually came out and the players who went and returned were almost always the same: Radu, Pinamonti and Vanheusden. Even the Romero-Demiral affairs with Atalanta and the transfer of Audero and the boys of the spring with Sampdoria are very closely monitored by Covisoc.

Criminal investigation ended in a month then everything to the FIGC: what can happen
The Turin Public Prosecutor’s Office, thanks to the elements in its possession and wiretapping in which the executives would make it clear that the operations were “fix”(In short, decided at the table), she is convinced that she can close the criminal investigation in a month. Only at that point will the material be turned over to the Football Federation which will have access to the wiretaps and over a thousand pages of the folder at the end of the investigation. The impression one gets is that there are margins for sporting justice (dealing with sporting offenses) to open a sporting trial before the end of the championshipwhich could also revolutionize the championship standings current, possibly imposing penalty points. How many points are we talking about? Impossible to say right now, for sure the feeling is that everything has just begun.

After Arrivabene it is up to other managers, then the turn of the suspects
Meanwhile, the interrogations of the prosecutors continue. Investigators asked Maurizio Arrivabene the reason for the change of course that took place last summer, which saw less use of the capital gains tool. They also questioned him about the “private writing” referred to in wiretapping and other wiretapping. The next to appear could be the secretary Paolo Morganti, then it will be the turn of the Juve U23 manager Giovanni Manna and probably the lawyer Cesare Gabasio, a lawyer who has been protecting the Juventus club since 2021. After that it will be up to the suspects, according to Gazzetta dello Sport from the filter offices, former executives Marco Re and Stefano Bertola have already been called to present themselves, as well as the current Chief Corporate & Financial Officer Stefano Cerrato. However, the convocation of Andrea Agnelli, Pavel Nedved and Fabio Paratici is not yet known and the impression is that the Prosecutor may not even call them. What is certain is that the times will not be prolonged, the aim is to close everything within two weeks and the preliminary phase within 30 days.
