Il Tempo reports that the FIGC Public Prosecutor is moving forward with the case involving Roma sporting direct Gianluca Petrachi, who has been accused of starting to work for the capital club while still under contract with Torino.
The file on Petrachi was opened on 27 September as the 50 year-old gave his testimony on 21 October: the main piece of evidence against him remains the slip of the tongue when he stated that he met with Inter for Dzeko in May – a full month before his contract with Roma officially took effect.
The newest pieces of evidence regarding this matter comes in the form of Freddi Greco and Flavio Burcri, two Primavera players who were sold to Torino under a “gentleman’s agreement” between the Granata and Roma. The documents sent from the Lega Serie A to the Prosectuor’s office made it clear that there is no transfer of money between the clubs for the two players. The paperwork seems to back-up the suspicion that the pair were given to Torino as reparations for the Giallorossi having met with Petrachi while he was still under contract with Toro.
Roma’s lawyer, Antonio Conte, has not yet requested a plea bargain as Petrachi faces a potential multi-month ban while Roma risks a heavy fine.
