Italian justice has called for a second search of the offices of Juventus, while an investigation is interested in the transfers made by the Old Lady. For that of Cristiano Ronaldo, a mysterious document is still missing …
The Italian justice continues its work in the investigation of the suspicious transfers carried out in Serie A, in particular by the Juventus. A new search was thus ordered in the offices of Bianconeri, in Turin.
Several transfers are in the sights of the investigators, such as that of Cristian Romero to Tottenham (the same day, he was transferred from Juventus to Atalanta), or the Arthur-Pjanic and Danilo-Cancelo exchanges made with Barça and Manchester City. The two transfers of Cristiano Ronaldo are also scrutinized, his arrival from Real Madrid, and his departure to Manchester United for 15 million euros plus 8 million euros in bonus.
Ronaldo, the mystery document
Regarding CR7, investigators heard two Juventus executives talk about “A document which should not have existed”, selon the Gazzetta dello Sport, and it is this document that is currently sought.
In general, Juventus is suspected of having overestimated certain transfer amounts, and thus of having provided false information to its investors (the club is listed on the stock exchange), while defrauding financial fair play. It is the club and its leaders who risk big, including president Andrea Agnelli, vice-president Pavel Nedved and former sporting director Fabio Paratici, now at Tottenham. Potentially affected players, like Cristiano Ronaldo, shouldn’t be worried.
“Reports in Italy claim there are recordings where Juventus directors talk about a ‘document that should not have theoretically existed’ in relation to Ronaldo, but investigators are yet to find the document.”
