Juventus star Nicolo Fagioli could be banned for THREE YEARS as he's investigated for alleged illegal betting breaches | The Sun
JUVENTUS star Nicolo Fagioli is allegedly facing a potential three-year ban for betting breaches.
Italian news outlet La Stampa have claimed today that the midfielder, 22, is under investigation for potential betting breaches on illegal platforms.
They state that it is part of an investigation by the Turin Prosecutor regarding gambling through illegal online platforms.
They report that investigators have scanned accesses, data and transactions and that Italy international Fagioli is one of the suspected bettors that are being investigated.
The Juventus ace is said to have come to the FIGC’s attention back on August 30.
Now prosecutor Giuseppe Chine has opened an investigation after Fagioli’s lawyers informed the Italian Football Federation about the ongoing investigation.

Article 24 of the Code of Sports Justice prohibits footy stars from gambling on “official events organised by FIGC, Uefa and Fifa”.
And they “cannot place or receive bets, directly or indirectly”.
Should Fagioli be found guilty of gambling on official football games he may be fined over £21,500.
But the Cremonese loanee is also looking at a potential suspension from playing that could be up to THREE YEARS.
