Juventus’ troubles are far from being over as they will face a new investigation about their 2022 balance sheet, Corriere Torino report.
The Public Prosecutor’s Office of Turin has decided to open a new case following the job done by Guardia di Finanza, the Italian financial police.
Juventus are accused of having made secret deals with seven clubs and then failed to register all the details of those deals in their books.
The Public Prosecutor believes that with this move, Juventus might have hid millions of debts, inflating the real value of various capital gains.
The other seven clubs involved are Cagliari, Udinese, Bologna, Atalanta, Sassuolo, Sampdoria and Swiss side Sion. It is believed that Juventus made deals with these clubs for €127 million but they should have registered €32.8 million less than that amount.
The Public Prosecutor is in possession of a mail between former Atalanta CFO Stefano Cerrato and current Juventus’ Football Director Federico Cherubino in which Cerrato stated that Atalanta had a €3 million credit towards Juventus.
It is yet to be established what consequences Juventus might suffer from this case. The preliminary hearing for the Prisma case has been postponed to May 10th while the Bianconeri will know the outcome of their appeal against the 15-points deduction on April 19th.
