Mayorga has alleged that Ronaldo raped her at a Las Vegas hotel in June 2009 after they met at a nightclub, where she was working at as a model to entice guests into the establishment.

Ms Mayorga has given consent through her lawyers to make her name public.

"The LVMPD is taking the same steps in this case as in any other sexual assault to facilitate the collection of DNA evidence", Officer Laura Meltzer said.

The reports state that the warrant has been sent to the court system in Italy, where the five-time Ballon d'Or victor plays for league leaders Juventus.

The woman, Kathryn Mayorga, has filed a civil suit asking the court to throw out the nondisclosure agreement she made when she was 25 regarding the alleged incident, citing the many women who've come forward in the Me Too movement as her inspiration for addressing the alleged crime.

"Mr. Ronaldo has always maintained, as he does today, that what occurred in 2009 in Las Vegas was consensual in nature", Ronaldo's lawyer Peter Christiansen wrote in a statement in October.

According to her lawsuit, Mayorga reported the assault to police later that day and received a medical examination.

Police reopened the case previous year when she came forward. Italian authorities will serve the warrant and collect DNA from Ronaldo, then send it back to Las Vegas to be tested.

Central to Der Spiegel's account is a questionnaire in which Ronaldo reportedly admits that Mayorga told him "no" and "stop" multiple times.

Ms Mayorga signed a non-disclosure contract for $375k a year later but has now waived her right to anonymity to bring about the action. Her attorneys say she was paid $375,000 U.S. in hush money. "I have information that I believe will be beneficial to your case and I would like to help you".

"My clear conscience will thereby allow me to await with tranquility the results of any and all investigations".
