    Inter Milan President Massimo Moratti said he was "very calm" following Tuesday's seizure of club documents.

    Italian financial police Tuesday "raided the offices" of more than 40 football clubs, including giants Juventus, AC Milan and Inter, "as part of a broad investigation into tax evasion and other alleged crimes involving player transfers," according to Gilles Castonguay of the WALL STREET JOURNAL. The raids, ordered by the public prosecutor's office in Naples, come as the government "desperately looks for revenue to avoid further raising already high tax rates." In the raids, police seized documents including player contracts, but "they arrested no suspects."
