Cristiano Ronaldo wins arbitration against Juventus for unpaid wages

Max Statman



Cristiano Ronaldo has emerged victorious in an arbitration case against his former club, Juventus, over unpaid wages.

The Portuguese superstar will now receive €9.8 million (plus interest) in back pay from the Italian club. The details of the case and the decision of the arbitration panel have been outlined below.

The arbitration panel recognized a degree of shared fault between the parties involved.


The official ruling states, “The Arbitration Panel, having heard all arguments and dismissed any further questions and exceptions, including those of an investigative nature, from the parties, and in accepting Cristiano Ronaldo Dos Santos Aveiro’s claim, as a subordinate issue, acknowledges the pre-contractual liability of the defendant for the reasons stated in the narrative.

“Considering the shared responsibility between the parties, the Panel orders Juventus F.C. S.p.A. to pay Cristiano Ronaldo Dos Santos Aveiro the sum of €9.774.166,66, with revaluation from the due date and legal interest from the claim date on the annually revalued amount.

“The Panel also fully compensates the parties for their respective defense costs, along with the costs of the Arbitration Panel as previously liquidated in the orders issued during the proceedings, with both parties jointly and equally responsible for 50% of these costs,” via Ilbianconero.

This decision was made with a majority vote, with dissenting opinion from Arbitrator Prof. Avv. Roberto Sacchi, in a personal conference of the arbitrators in Milan on the dates of February 15, 2024, February 22, 2024, March 7, 2024, and April 10, 2024.


Cristiano Ronaldo’s journey with Juventus began in the summer of 2018 when he completed a sensational move from Real Madrid for a Serie A record fee of €105m.

This transfer was seen as a major coup for the Italian club, as they brought in one of the world’s most decorated and talented footballers to help them achieve their ambitious goals both domestically and in Europe.

Ronaldo’s arrival at Juventus was met with great excitement and anticipation among the club’s supporters, who were eager to see the Portuguese superstar in the iconic black and white stripes.

His first season with the club was a successful one, as he helped Juventus secure their eighth consecutive Serie A title, scoring 21 goals in the league.


However, the primary reason for Ronaldo’s signing was to help the club achieve European glory in the Champions League, a competition in which they had been runners-up twice in recent years.

Despite his best efforts, including scoring crucial goals in the knockout stages, Juventus failed to progress beyond the quarter-finals in his first two seasons with the club.

During his time at Juventus, Ronaldo’s individual performances remained at a high level, with the forward continuing to score goals and break records.

He won back-to-back Serie A Footballer of the Year awards in his first two seasons and was the league’s top scorer in the 2020-2021 season with 29 goals.


However, despite his personal success and the team’s domestic dominance, Ronaldo and Juventus were unable to achieve their ultimate goal of Champions League glory.

This, combined with the club’s financial challenges, led to a mutual agreement for Ronaldo to leave the club in the summer of 2021, with the player returning to Manchester United.
