The Italian Football Association started an investigation on Wednesday into dozens of transfers in the Serie A. Italian media report, among other things, that clubs have deliberately misvalued the value of players for the purpose of accounting.

In total, this concerns 62 transfers that took place in the period between 2019 and 2021.

Juventus would be involved in most of those deals,

The largest transfer under investigation is that of Victor Osimhen.

The talented Nigerian striker moved from Lille OSC to Napoli for more than 70 million euros in September last year.

Barter transfers have been the subject of discussion in Italy for some time now.

When exchanging players, it is difficult to establish a precise market value that clubs would take advantage of.

According to Italian media, Covisoc, the regulator of Serie A clubs, has sent a detailed report to the prosecutor and Gabriele Gravina, the president of the Italian Football Association.

Juventus has already been involved in a scandal this century.

The 'Old Lady' was returned to Serie B in 2006 for bribery.

The 2005 and 2006 titles were taken away.

A year later, the club was back at the highest level.

The biggest transfer mentioned is that of Victor Osimhen from Lille OSC to Napoli.
