Cristiano Ronaldo Brother in T-Shirt Fraud

Cristiano Ronaldo’s older brother, Hugo dos Santos Aveiro, who was embroiled in a controversy involving a T-shirt fraud, has been formally accused of fraud by the Italian Public Prosecutor’s Office in the case of allegedly counterfeit Juventus jerseys.

According to a report in the ‘Corriere dello Sport’, Hugo will now face legal proceedings for selling T-shirts, bearing Ronaldo’s image and signature, were reportedly sold without the necessary permissions and licenses.

The investigation began in 2019 with the aim of determining whether there was fraud against the company ‘Pegasso’, with which Cristiano Ronaldo had an agreement for the online sale of sports clothing for Juve shirts.

Meanwhile, on the football front, Ronaldo joined Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr on a 2-1/2 year contract, after leaving Manchester United.

Ronaldo departed Old Trafford last month following an explosive television interview in which the 37-year-old forward said he felt betrayed by the club and did not respect their Dutch manager Erik ten Hag.

Al Nassr issued a statement saying the five-time Ballon D’or winner will join on a deal until 2025 but did not disclose any financial details. Ronaldo’s contract has been estimated by media to be worth more than 200 million euros ($214.04 million).

Ronaldo has a vast collection of club honours after a glittering spell at Spanish giants Real Madrid from 2009-18 where he won two LaLiga titles, two Spanish Cups, four Champions League titles and three Club World Cups.
