The Italian football federation have announced they are investigating irregularities in the transfer of Diego Milito and Thiago Motta from Genoa to Inter Milan.

The case centres around the involvement of Genoa owner and president Enrico Preziosi who is banned from footballing activities for five years but has claimed to have instigated the sale of the duo to Inter.

Milito scored 30 times for Inter last season and was instrumental in them winning the treble, with goals in the Champions League final, the Coppa Italia final and the last game of the campaign where victory secured the Serie A title.

A spokesperson for the Italian federation (FIGC) confirmed that their disciplinary committee have called Preziosi and Inter president Massimo Moratti up for questioning and revealed that more information could be forthcoming today.

However, she refused to comment on reports suggesting the Nerazzurri could be stripped of one of their titles.
