Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Italian police ‘could summon Ronaldo for questioning’”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The Serie A giants' offices in Turin and Milan were hit by a financial police raid last Friday with paperwork pertaining to player contracts as well as invoices and other similar paperwork taken in as evidence.   

From 2019 to 2021, the Old Lady, as they are known in Italy, are accused of falsely recording transfer values to get around Financial Fair Play regulations with six figures including president Andrea Agnelli and vice-president Pavel Nedved said to be under investigation for up to 42 deals.

Additionally, after allegedly being made aware by telephone conversations, officials want to know more about purported payments made to Ronaldo between March and April 2020 at the height of lockdown while those to other teammates were frozen.

La Gazzetta dello Sport have claimed that developments around Ronaldo could see him questioned by the Turin Public Prosecutor, with it believed that there was a possible secret agreement between the five-time Ballon d'Or winner and Juventus related to deferred salaries during the pandemic or severance pay he was due when leaving for Old Trafford on transfer deadline day. 

More specifically, the phone calls are said to involve Juve directors talking about a "document that should not have theoretically existed," though the file is yet to be found by investigators.
