Even in Italy, an arrest warrant could be activated – Finance Ministry warns Cristiano Ronaldo

Published

Real Madrid have allowed Cristiano Ronaldo to move to Juventus, yet the Ministry of Finance has made clear that even if the Portuguese international is in Italy, a warrant for his arrest could still be activated.
Ronaldo has been involved in a long battle with the Spanish treasury over a tax issue, although it was understood in June that a settlement agreement had been reached.

Jose Maria Mollinedo, secretary general of GESTHA, maintains that the transfer to Serie A changes no part of Ronaldo’s situation.

“Juventus signing Ronaldo will not change his problems with the Treasury, even in Italy a warrant for his arrest could be activated,” he explained in an interview with Europa Press.

“His lawyers will continue to defend him in Spanish courts. There is also the European Court of Justice for this case.”

It will also be made clear to the former Manchester United forward that the date of his signature with the Italian champions will need to be noted in case he attempts to pay income tax for non-residents rather than residents’ income tax.
