in the last summer transfer window, but the Turin prosecutor's office has recently begun gathering the player's financial documents, which may cause some trouble for the Portuguese star.

Juventus have recently been accused of false accounting, and Italian law enforcement agency Guardia di Finanza intrusively went to the club's office on Friday to gather the needed information.

Di Finanza requested accounting, non-accounting, banking and correspondence documents for all Juventus transfers from July 2018 onwards. After reviewing the documents, the Turin Public Prosecutor’s Office pointed to two suspicious cases that have not been reported to the authorities.

The first is the double transfer operation of the players Merih Demiral and Cristiano Romero and the second is a private contractual agreement between Ronaldo and Juve and the debts of salaries of the player.

After discovering confidential documents about Ronaldo, the inspectors began to examine the documents related to each individual player and their agreements with the Bianconeri during quarantine in March 2020.

The players and staff agreed not to receive their salaries in March, April, May and June, but the arrears were to be paid the following year if the club resumed operations.

Ronaldo received a salary of €31m per season, however, the 36-year-old was not paid in full, as over €10m were frozen during the lockdown that would be recounted after the resumption of the activity.
