Tax officials looking into 30 Argentine transfers

Argentina's tax agency said Friday it was looking into transfers of about 30 football players as part of a crackdown on tax evasion and money laundering in the country's top two divisions.
Ricardo Echegaray, head of the tax agency known by the Spanish-language acronym AFIP, said the body had also blacklisted 146 player agents from working legally in Argentina.
Echegaray did not name the players under suspicion, although two were confirmed earlier in the week: Jonathan Bottinelli of River Plate and Ignacio Piatti of San Lorenzo. AFA, the governing body of Argentine football, has banned both from playing until the transfers are clarified.
