  • UEFA required Roma to meet a target of £24m in capital gains
  • However, it is said that the Giallorossi missed their target by less than £2million
  • However, the club managed to avoid stricter penalties from UEFA

Roma have reportedly been fined for failing to meet a capital gains target required by UEFA – despite avoiding tougher sporting sanctions.

Italian publication have claimed that Jose Mourinho’s side were unable to reach the £24m mark in capital gains by the June 30 deadline.

It is said that the Giallorossi missed their target by less than £2m and will therefore have to pay a £4.3m penalty to UEFA.

Roma avoided harsher punishment – such as a reduction to their European squad or even a ban from the competition – as they were believed to be close enough to the target.

The Italian publication claims that they had net capital gains of around £22.3 million in the financial year ended June 30.

Although the club had reportedly received offers for Tottenham targets Roger Ibanez and Nicola Zalewski in recent days, the club decided to pay the penalty rather than rush to sell those players.

It follows the crisis at Juventus, where the Italian giants have been accused of falsifying capital gains from their transfer deals.

Juventus suffered a 10-point deduction after the earlier penalty was reinstated following a ruling by Italy’s Federal Court of Appeal.

The decision to deduct 15 points from them was initially reversed early in the season.

The entire Juventus board resigned last November, including president Andrea Agnelli and vice-president Pavel Nedved, following allegations of improper accounting.

They finished seventh overall, just one point behind Roma.
