Ronaldo now plays for the soccer club Juventus in Italy.

Mayorga went public with her story in an interview with Der Spiegel in September, saying the Portuguese global raped her in a Las Vegas hotel room after a chance meeting in June 2009.

The official who spoke with the Journal said police sent the warrant to court officials in Italy, where Ronaldo plays for the Italian club Juventus in addition to Portugal's national team. Authorities are now asking for Ronaldo's DNA to see if it matches that found on Mayorga's dress from the 2009 night in question.

Ronaldo's attorney, Peter S. Christiansen, reiterated the player's innocence in a statement obtained by BBC Sport correspondent Dan Roan on Thursday.

Inside the document, Cristiano Ronaldo was said to have offered Kathryn Mayorga £287,000 for her not to speak about anything that happened between the two of them in Las Vegas.

The police case was closed in 2009 when the alleged victim, Kathryn Mayorga, declined to name her assailant. 5/7 minutes. She said that she didn't want to, but she made herself available. As she was changing, he purportedly came in and asked her to carry out a sexual act. But she kept saying no.

Lennard, 33, called the footballer "a psychopath" in now-deleted tweets, in which she pledged to assist the woman who has accused Ronaldo of rape.

Mayorga reported the alleged assault to the police the day after it occurred, but then negotiated a an out-of-court settlement with Ronaldo not to go public with her claims. She claims that they have had a relationship for a full decade, and she suffered emotional trauma and even threats against her life.

Her lawyers are now seeking to declare the non-disclosure agreement void. She says she was left traumatised, and suffering from post-traumatic stress, "major depression" and suicidal thoughts.
