Player contracts, invoices and financial statements were all seized.

Juventus are accused of falsifying transfer dealings in order to comply with Financial Fair Play.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Manchester United star Ronaldo could be hauled in front of investigators regarding his time in Italy

Prosecutors are allegedly exploring a ‘secret’ agreement supposedly struck between Ronaldo and Juve regarding the salary he deferred during the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic.

They are also interested in severance pay CR7 received ahead of his return to Old Trafford this summer.

Italian reports allege that investigators have obtained recorded phone calls, during which Juve chiefs mention a ‘document that should not have theoretically existed’ with regards to Ronaldo.

Investigators are yet to find this document.

This is why they are reportedly keen to speak to Ronaldo directly, in order to clear up the matter.

And they are considering summoning him back to Italy via agent Jorge Mendes.

While Ronaldo is involved, he is NOT among those being investigated.

Spurs managing director Fabio Paratici, who left Juve earlier this year, is among those being investigated.

Italian consumer watchdog Codacons believe that the Old Lady could be RELEGATED over the matter.

They also feel that they could have their most recent league titles stripped.

Ronaldo, 36, will be in action for Man United tonight, as they take on Arsenal at Old Trafford.

The Portuguese will hope to return to the starting XI, after being benched by Michael Carrick for the 1-1 draw with Chelsea last weekend.
