More than a year ago, a former employee of the Italian football club Napoli was arrested on charges of embezzlement and theft.
His arrest was a shock to Italian football, and it sparked a huge investigation into the workings of the game.
Now, it appears, an entirely different team is in the running to host the 2018 edition of the Rome derby.
A new club has been registered to play at the stadium in the new name of Milanello, the same name used by Napoli during their last title defence.
Milanello has yet to confirm it has signed a deal to host a derby.
However, in March, Italian media reported that the new club was being investigated by the anti-graft authority, which is investigating allegations of fraud.
The anti-corruption authority has also launched an investigation into a new Italian newspaper, Il Messaggero, after the publication of a story claiming that the paper is being used by a former football official, Francesco Fagioli, to peddle fake documents.
Fagiola’s involvement with the paper was revealed by the Italian newspaper L’Espresso, which quoted him as saying: “My wife is not an agent.
I have not had a single job.
I am not an investigator, I am a journalist.
I only have one goal: to inform people about the corruption.”
It is not known whether the new Milanello will host the derby.
However, Fagio, who was appointed by Napolese president Aurelio De Laurentiis in 2011, is said to be close to the president.
The club said it would not comment on the matter.
Napoli are the latest Italian club to have a name change.
The club of the 1990s, Brescia, have renamed their ground, and former Napoli player Mauro Icardi has said he is considering legal action over the name change, although no formal action has yet been taken.
