There's one more thing to do for CR7 before heading to Juventus...
- Cristiano is expected to pay out a fine (€18.8m) within the next few days
- The player was accused of tax evasion through offshore companies back in 2017
Before finally leaving Madrid, Cristiano will pay off his tax debts.
The player is expected to pay out a fine worth 18.8 million euros, and this is added to the fact that he had accepted the criminal charges brought against him (a two-year suspended prison sentence).
However, the Portuguese has no need to get back to Madrid as his legal representative José Antonio Choclán is supposed to sign all the necessary documents. The lawyer planned to close the deal before Ronaldo signed a four-year contract with Juve, but, due to several bureaucratic difficulties, the finalizing was postponed.
The following deal is to be closed within the next few days.
Cristiano Ronaldo was accused of tax evasion after failing to declare 14.8 million euros through offshore companies via companies in Ireland and the British Virgin Islands.
