The facilities of the SAD of FC Porto, at Estádio do Dragão, at the Sport Training and Training Center PortoGaia, in Olival, as well as Portimonense, in Arena Portimão, have been the target of inspections by the Judicial Police (PJ). , In the scope of an investigation related to a test for the novel coronavirus conducted by Nakajima in January, which was allegedly rigged to allow the Japanese player to travel by plane outside of European space.
Law enforcement agencies announced dozens of home searches and clinical analysis laboratories in the Algarve and Porto, in an investigation that began with a trip abroad for the athlete, who was allegedly infected with the new coronavirus. PJ wants to try to understand whether the test result he was exposed to was still the Dragon player was cheated to allow him to head towards Dubai in order to sign a loan deal until the end of this season with Al Ain, since he has had room for maneuver in the team coached by Sergio Conceicao.
