Napoli lawyer Mattia Grassani assures fans that the investigation into President Aurelio De Laurentiis over Victor Osimhen transfer from LOSC is ‘non-news.’
It was announced today that De Laurentiis and therefore Napoli were under investigation in Rome for false accounting regarding the deal in 2020.
This transfer has long aroused suspicion in Italy and France, as it was valued at €71.2m, but €20.1m of that was made up of four players in exchange, who went on to either barely or never play for Lille.
It was therefore investigated over the potential that their transfer fees were artificially inflated to boost capital gains.

“Aside from the technicalities, we want to inform the fans what is happening and reassure them,” Napoli lawyer Grassani told Radio CRC.
“Napoli have already been judged on this matter with two different levels of the justice system that cleared the club and directors, finding no irregularities.
“Napoli is the only club where the Prosecutor did not ask for the judgment to be revoked, which then lead to Juventus having first a 15-point and then 10-point Serie A penalty.
“Consequently, if there is no new evidence in this investigation, the Osimhen issue can be considered concluded on a disciplinary level.”
