Italian police authorities have reportedly concluded plans to investigate Cristiano Ronaldo and six other Juventus players for allegedly breaching quarantine rules breach.
They could also be slapped with a £900 fine as part of the punishment after disappearing from the Old Lady's retreat, where the Serie A champions were observing isolation.
Juve's camp was hit with the news of two new cases of coronavirus after a couple of their players tested positive for the virus.
SunSport quoting TuttoSport reports that Gianluigi Buffon and Merih Demiral chose to leave the camp and reunite with their families in their respective homes on Monday, October 5. While the likes of Rodrigo Bentancur, Juan Cuadrado, Danilo, Paulo Dybala and Ronaldo reportedly left and join their national teams set up for the FIFA window.
The Italian League giants were unable to prevent their players from leaving the bubble but it became their individual responsibility after exiting the facility.
Juve however went ahead to report to the ASL, the local health unit, who acknowledge the receipt of the complaint directly from the club.
The names of the players who left the isolation centre have now been submitted to the Prosecutor’s Office.
Corriere di Torino revealed Roberto Testi, the director of the Prevention Department of the ASL Citta di Torino, indicated nothing controversial will come from the rule breach. Testi said:
“I don’t think anything serious has been committed and if someone were to take a private flight, maybe they’ll pay a fine and I don’t think any players will have problems doing it."
Meanwhile, Andrea Pirlo and the rest of the team will continue their training in isolation, including some players who received international call-ups during the current break.
Italy manager Roberto Mancini said he expected Juventus players to arrive, but the isolation period will reportedly only end once all the protocol checks are completed.
Ronaldo was in the Portugal squad that drew 0-0 with Spain on Wednesday and plays France and Sweden in Nations League fixtures.
