Despite last season's presence at the Internacional Champions Cup, where he faced Benfica, Juventus will not be present in the next pre-season edition because of Cristiano Ronaldo.
The New York Times explains that the tournament organizers have chosen not to consider vecchia
signora as a possibility, since it would put the Portuguese international at risk of being detained
in North American soil, where the race will unfold, due to the investigation of the alleged violation in Las Vegas of which CR7 is targeted.
Instead, explains the same publication, Juventus will be present in the Asian version of the competition, which will also have the presence of Tottenham and Manchester United.
Juventus confirmed on Wednesday their presence in the International Champions Cup, without mentioning the venue or opponents.
It is recalled that Benfica has already confirmed its presence in this tournament.
