Juve raided by tax police

There was more trouble for Juventus after the club’s offices, plus two of their players’ homes, were raided by Italy’s financial police.

The ‘Guardia di Finanza’ searched the Bianconeri’s headquarters as part of an investigation into the club’s transfer market manoeuvres.

It’s also understood that the homes of defender Fabio Cannavaro and Zlatan Ibrahimovic were visited today as part of the enquiry, even if neither man is being investigated in the probe. They were believed to have been targeted by tax officials as a result of tapped telephone conversations which concerned their transfers to the Turin club.

Turin magistrates have opened a file on the outfit with Antonio Giraudo, the club’s former chief executive, being placed under investigation for alleged false accounting.
