The manufacturing company was contracted to produce those jerseys with CR7Museu logos in a deal that amounted to €500,000.

But they claimed they were not given the green light to commence production, hence, they asked to be paid €4 each so that the once they had produced could be destroyed.

However, Pegaso claims they spotted the same set of manufactured shirts listed for sale at €40 at the Cristiano Ronaldo Museum.

And they are now suing Mussara and the company director, Ronaldo’s brother, who is currently under investigation.
