Christian Vieri wants a combined £14m from former club Inter and Telecom Italia for allegedly spying on him during his Nerazzurri stay.
The striker, now at Atalanta, has reportedly filed a lawsuit against both after he claims they tailed him and illegally tapped his phone between 1999 and 2005.
It’s understood that the veteran is hoping to get £6m from the current Serie A leaders and £8m from the telecommunications company.
Rumours that Inter allegedly monitored Vieri’s lifestyle broke in the media late last year.
The club, who haven’t commented on the story, were said to be concerned about his off-the-field activities.
The case could go to court sometime between May and September of this year, sources in the peninsula have claimed.
Vieri is now in Bergamo and hit the headlines last night after the injury-plagued striker played in his first competitive match for a year.
