The Public Prosecutors Office in Milan has denied reports which claim they had made an enquiry into allegations of match-fixing at Inter.
Il Giornale Newspaper published a report on Friday morning which claimed the Office had made an investigation into alleged match-fixing.
The Milan-based paper had claimed Inter threw away matches during the course of last season to favour betting odds on the Scudetto.
However, in a major twist to the story, the Prosecutors Office has strongly denied the claims that they have made an investigation into match-fixing.
A statement released by the Office and published in La Gazzetta Dello Sport reads:
"The Office would like to precise that no enquiry was ever made regarding the 2007/08 season and, in particular, Inter."
Il Giornale carried the story which alleged a number of matches were thrown away towards the end of the season to favour gambling odds.
One game in particular was the 2-2 draw between Inter and Siena on the penultimate day of the season.
Inter have not released any comment or statement regarding the claims.
