Cristiano Ronaldo Reportedly Slams Juventus With Legal Suit

Cristiano Ronaldo, who spent three years at Juventus, is demanding an unpaid wage to the tune of about €19.9m net.

La Gazzetta dello Sport claims in its report on page 20, that the Portuguese was promised this when he agreed to defer his wages during the early months of the COVID pandemic.

The supposed deferred wages are part of Juventus’ now-infamous ‘salary manoeuvres’, which are currently in court.

Recall we reported in 2022 that Ronaldo wanted to sue the Serie A giants for an outstanding payment of €19.9 million, here we are.

Cristiano Ronaldo decided to take legal action against the Old Lady of Turin after he requested the relevant document from the Public Prosecutor’s Office.

Aside from Cristiano Ronaldo, another Juventus star, Leonardo Bonucci also launched legal action against the club as reported by Futballnews.

Paulo Dybala was another ex-Juventus star that had same issue, but his was resolved after he reached an agreement with the club for the €3m he was owed.

The Argentine has dropped his lawsuit about the compensation for the failure to extend his contract following their initial verbal agreement.

Cristiano Ronaldo is the latest former Juventus player to drag the Italian giants to court after they failed to pay his outstanding wages.

Cristiano Ronaldo joined Manchester United from Juventus in 2021, signing a two-year contract that was to expire at the end of the current 2022/23 Premier League season.

There were seven months remaining on his United contract with the club not ready to fork out £16million for the then-wantaway forward.

The Portuguese had to part ways with the club following the contract termination and lost the £16million payment that would have been for the remaining seven months of his deal.

Reports in Italy then had it that Ronaldo had reportedly demanded Juventus to pay him an outstanding €19.9m and had consulted his lawyers to that effect.

Cristiano Ronaldo demanded the payment after Juventus agreed with him, but is now suing the club for not meeting the terms of that agreement.

Juventus claims that the deal is said to have not been reported in the stock market or the club’s balance sheet.

FutballNews had earlier reported that Juventus were under investigation for secretly striking a deal with Cristiano Ronaldo during the 2019 Covid Pandemic and falsifying financial documents.

While Juventus denied wrongdoing or improper conduct, Ronaldo refused to comment on the incident when contacted.

Meanwhile, Juventus claimed they had been vindicated and cleared by the Italian court; hence the media blitz and noses to reawaken the indictments were not necessary and irrelevant.
