New search of Juve offices regards Ronaldo ties - sources

Turin giants under investigation over player trading

(ANSA) - ROME, DEC 3 - A new search of Juventus's offices regarded the club's relationship with their former player, Portugal and Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo, sources said on Friday.
    The Turin giants and several top officials, including Chairman Andrea Agnelli and Vice-Chairman Pavel Nedved, are under investigation in a criminal probe into player trades done between 2019 and this year.
    The investigators staged the new search after questioning several club managers, summoned as witnesses, in recent days, the sources said.
    Juventus has said it is confident it respected the law in relation to the transfers and added that it is cooperating with investigators.
    The club is accused of giving false financial communications and issuing invoices for non-existent transactions.
    Italian stock-market watchdog CONSOB is also looking into the revenue it posted from player trades amid reports that the values generated were inflated to make the club's balance sheets look better. (ANSA).
