The Portuguese ace is still being investigated for the alleged rape of Kathryn Mayorga, which would force the Old Lady to change their preseason plans.

Cristiano Ronaldo's alleged rape case comes back to haunt the footballer, but this time, it could have an effect on Juventus' plans for their performance in the International Champions Cup.

According to a report by the New York Times, Juventus will avoid setting foot in the U.S. in order to avoid CR7 from being contacted by American authorities, who are currently investigating the alleged rape of Kathryn Mayorga back in 2009. The Old Lady was expected to play in the U.S. leg of the International Champions Cup, but sources consulted by the Times revealed that Juve will end up playing in the Asian leg of the preseason tournament.

"Juventus has a multiyear agreement to play in the International Champions Cup, which is organized by New York-based Relevent Sports. Ronaldo's legal troubles played a role in shaping plans for Juventus's participation, according to people familiar with this summer's schedule," Tariq Panja of the NYT revealed.

CR7 has been asked to give a DNA sample to match matter found on Ms. Mayorga's dress from that night, but while the warrant was reportedly sent to Italy, the footballer is yet to send such sample to the Las Vegas Police Department.

The Portuguese striker is currently training with Portugal for the upcoming UEFA Euro Qualifiers. He has always maintained his innocence in this case, with his lawyers adding that everything that happened between CR7 and Ms. Mayorga was "consensual in nature."
