Investigators Looking Into Cristiano Ronaldo's Juventus Contract

According to ANSA, Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract at Juventus is also being scrutinized by the Italian Guardia Di Finanza, but the Manchester United star is not under investigation.

 

On Friday night, the Italian Financial Police arrived at Juventus’ headquarters at Continassa, confiscating documents regarding transfers worth over €50m between 2019 and 2020.

 

The Turin Public Prosecutor’s Office opened a dossier after CONSOB and COVISOC investigations into the capital gains cases in Serie A.

 

Juventus President Andrea Agnelli is investigated along with vice-president Pavel Nedved and other current and former club directors including Fabio Paratici, now at Tottenham Hotspur.

 

According to ANSA, investigators are also looking into Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract at Juventus, but the Portuguese star is not under investigation.

 

In 2018, Ronaldo signed a four-year deal with the Bianconeri, worth €31m per season.

The magistrates told investigators to check ‘documents and private scriptures’ related to Ronaldo’s Juventus contract and arrears.

 

The former Real Madrid star was among the players who agreed to get a wage reduction during the peak of the COVID pandemic in March 2020, helping the club save €90m.

 

Ronaldo left Juventus in the summer, returning to Manchester United in a €15m deal plus €8m add-ons.
