Cristiano Ronaldo may receive a one-month ban for Juventus scandal


Juventus are going through one of their toughest periods. 

The financial scandal in which the Italian club are immersed has earned them a 15-point deduction in Serie A for inflating players' value for capital gains.

Members of the club's board, including president Andrea Agnelli and vice-president Pavel Nedved, have already resigned, while former sporting director and current Tottenham Hotspur director Fabio Paratici received a two-and-a-half-year ban.

Several reports have emerged indicating that players whose names are involved in the scandal could also be suspended.

Cristiano Ronaldo and another 22 players may receive a one-month ban, one which should be served whether they currently play for Juventus or not in the event it is proven that they were complicit in what was happening and are also considered guilty for financial fraud.

If that were to happen, Ronaldo would not be able to feature for his new club, Al Nassr, and would have to stay away from action for one month.

This would not please Al Nassr, who have invested an exorbitant $200 million in signing the Portuguese star.
