Juventus have struck a plea-bargain with the Federazione Italiana Giuoco Calcio which means they will face no more sporting sanctions from the league, a report claims.
According to what is being reported by The Athletic, Juventus have accepted a fine of €718,000 as part of a plea-bargain agreed with the FIGC which essentially means that they will face no further points deductions.
The Bianconeri dropped from second to seventh after being deducted 10 points by the Federal Court of Appeal earlier this month, and they are now out of Champions League contention after their defeat to Milan on Sunday night.
That particular penalty was aimed at punishing the inflated player trading and then a second investigation was brought against the ‘Prisma’, which included allegations of false accounting, false financial statements and market manipulation.
Another points deduction was reported as being a possibility but this news means there will be no more sporting sanctions and instead they will pay a €718k fine, but Juventus’ former chairman Andrea Agnelli did not enter a plea-bargain and will stand sporting trial on June 15.
However, the article adds that UEFA are conducting their own investigation into ‘potential breaches of club licensing and Financial Fair Play’, and could ban them from European competitions.
