Maldini, who denies the accusations, is alleged to have committed the crime during a property deal in Tuscany.

A tax agency employee was arrested in 2009 during the police investigation.

Maldini, 42, retired from all soccer in 2009 after a glittering career and has yet to take another job having turned down coaching roles at Milan and Chelsea.
