Without knowing it, Ronaldo paid for the trips of his former teammate to several European cities, but mainly Lyon, in France, Madrid, Spain and Turin in Italy, where Thiago represented the local football teams.
Meanwhile, Maria Silva was given a four-year suspended prison sentence for cheating CR7 about 200 runs, injuring an ace, super agent Jorge Mendes, his companies Gestifute and Polaris and footballers Nani and Manuel Fernandez, and they had a well-scheme assembled. At his Geostar agency office, which operates at Gestifute’s private headquarters, in Porto, he handled the travel of important players and their families.
