Ronaldo could be given documents relating to Juventus investigation

According to La Gazzetta Dello Sport, the Turin Prosecutor could allow Cristiano Ronaldo’s lawyers to scrutinise the documents about the investigation on Juventus after rejecting CR7’s first request a few weeks ago.

Reports in Italy claimed earlier this week that the Turin Prosecutor did not allow Ronaldo’s lawyers to receive the documents regarding a financial investigation on the Bianconeri.

However, according to Gazzetta, things could change now that 11 current and former directors and the club have been recommended for trial for alleged false accounting and false communication to the market, among other things.

The Turin Prosecutor may allow Ronaldo and his lawyers to scrutinise the documents hoping to get collaboration and clarify the striker’s position after CR7 refused to answer questions from investigators earlier this year.

Multiple reports claim Juventus still owe Ronaldo €19.9m even if the Portuguese superstar left Turin in August 2021. The problem for Juve is that the debt towards Ronaldo and other players has not been registered in their financial statements.

Ronaldo hasn’t made a direct request to Juventus to receive the money they owe him, but the club’s Supervisory Board confirmed earlier this week that the striker’s lawyers had requested the documents regarding the ongoing criminal investigation to the Turin Prosecutor to better understand his position, being a creditor of the club.
