Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo will be invited to court on Tuesday, 22nd January, accused of tax fraud.
His lawyer made a request for him to appear through a video link, but it seems he will be facing the judge in person.
He will be taking a private jet to Madrid, a day before he faces Chievo with Juventus in a Serie A fixture. His lawyers have requested that the court must have proper security that matches the high status of the player.
The five time world player of the year is not expected to speak to the media after the court session, and will immediately return to Italy.
