Las Vegas police have issued a warrant to obtain Cristiano Ronaldo’s DNA to see if it matches that found on the dress of his rape accuser.
The Wall Street Journal reports authorities recently sent the warrant to Italian courts, given Ronaldo now plays for Juventus.
According to the German magazine, 34-year-old Ms Mayorga filed a report with Las Vegas police shortly after the alleged incident at a hotel penthouse suite in the city in 2009.
She then reached an out-of-court settlement with Ronaldo in 2010, receiving $375,000 (£288,000) to never go public with the allegations, but her lawyers believe the non-disclosure agreement is void.
Nevada police reopened its investigation into the former model and school teacher’s accusations back in October, which Ronaldo denies and for which he has never been charged.
“Mr Christiansen declined to comment on Wednesday on the new developments in the probe,” concluded the WSJ.
