According to the sources, several financial institutions, including JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, and Citigroup, are discussing with prosecutors the level of their awareness under the FIFA probe, according to Sputnik.

Sixteen current and former FIFA executives in Central and South America faced criminal charges from US authorities earlier in December.

On May 27, the US Department of Justice charged 14 people, including nine FIFA officials, with racketeering, money laundering and taking $150 million in bribes.

In September, US Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Washington plans to bring addition charges against individuals and entities in the FIFA corruption scandal.
