Tax officials looking into Argentine transfers

Tax officials looking into Argentine transfers

Argentina is investigating player transfers in football as part of a crackdown on tax evasion and suspected money laundering in the game.
Argentina's tax agency, known by the Spanish-language acronym AFIP, on Friday was expected to announce it is looking into transfers of up to 35 players and could ask the Argentine Football Association to rule them ineligible to play.
The transfers involve some of Argentina's most famous clubs, including Boca Juniors, River Plate, Racing, San Lorenzo and Independiente.
This is the first sign that government rules published earlier this year may be starting to bite. The regulations require AFA and clubs in the top two divisions to report the financial details of transfers, salaries, bonuses and other contracts that have long escaped examination in Argentina.
