Al Nassr striker, Cristiano Ronaldo has dragged Juventus to court over unpaid wages during the Covid-19 pandemic.

He wants to be paid £17.15million, his wages he agreed to defer during lockdown.

Juventus players agreed to defer four months’ worth of their salaries in March 2020 and April 2021 as the club were struggling financially, but individual agreements were also made with players.

Now, Ronaldo has decided that he wants to collect the money owed to him and has requested the relevant documents from the Turin Public Prosecutor’s office, according to La Gazzetta Dello Sport.

The 38-year-old left Juventus in August 2021 for Manchester United and now plays now plays for Al-Nassr, who sit seventh in the Saudi Pro League.

His move comes after Roma forward Paulo Dybala reached an agreement with Juventus for the approximate £2.6million he was owed.
