The Capital Gains case has reportedly reemerged on the scene, and the new investigation could involve a swap deal between Inter Milan and AS Roma.

The case known in Italy as “Plusvalenza” first surfaced a few years ago in a trial that involved several clubs between Serie A and Serie B, and all defendants were initially acquitted.

However, a later investigation looked into Juventus’ salary maneuvers between 2020 and 2021 revealed new evidence in the Capital Gains case.

Therefore, the public prosecutor reopened the file and the Bianconeri received a 10-point deduction.

The alleged practice revolves around registering capital gains on the balance sheet through inflated transfer values.

According to Tuttosport via FcInterNews, the public prosecutor in Rome is now investigating the transfer activities of As Roma after obtaining new evidence from the Prisma inquiry,

The source claims the prosecutors are now examining 12 transfer operations between 2017 and 2021. This includes one operation that involves Inter.

That is the swap deal that saw Radja Nainggolan move to Inter in the summer of 2018. Nicolo Zaniolo and Davide Santon headed in the opposite direction as exchange pawns.

Prosecutors Investigating Potential Illegal Capital Gains In Exchange Deal Between Inter Milan & Roma

The former Belgium international’ transfer reportedly cost the Nerazzurri 38 million euros.

But as the source explains, this operation should have generated capital gains worth 24 million, whereas the Roman club recorded 31M.

As the prosecution office explains, the accounting in such cases doesn’t serve as a mean, but rather as an end.

The prosecutors thus believe that the two clubs may have inflated the values of the players involved in the swap deal.

At the moment, it remains unclear whether these new developments will have any ramifications on Inter and Roma.
