Ronaldo Ready To Pay 14.7 Million Euros In Spanish Tax Fraud Case

Ronaldo Ready To Pay 14.7 Million Euros In Spanish Tax Fraud Case

The accusation against Mourinho comes a week after the Madrid-based prosecutor's office accused Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo of defrauding Spain's tax office of 14.7 million euros ($16.5 million).

Ronaldo is now on worldwide duty with Portugal at the Confederations Cup and was named man of the match after heading home his side's winning goal against the hosts Russian Federation.

The claims against Mourinho come amid a lengthening list of tax fraud cases involving soccer stars in Spain.

"Nobody at Real Madrid is contemplating that Cristiano will go", Perez told Spanish radio station Onda Cero, as quoted in The Times.

Real Madrid player Cristiano Ronaldo has been called to testify on July 31 in Madrid on allegations that he hid income from tax authorities between 2011 and 2014, the court said on Tuesday.

Ronaldo has denied the claims but not before speculation linking him with a return to Manchester United or a move to Paris Saint-Germain grew.


Mourinho managed Real Madrid between 2010 and 2013.

It was not immediately possible to reach Di Maria's representatives for a comment.

Ronaldo's future at Real Madrid looked guaranteed after lifting his third Champions League title with the club earlier this month, the Portugal global scoring twice in a 4-1 win over Juventus.

The maximum fine would be 255,500 euros (224,381.15 pounds), Reuters calculations showed, on top of a almost 2 million euro fine handed down as part of last year's sentence.

Spanish tax authorities believe Mourinho used an image rights company based in the British Virgin Islands that was part of a chain of companies including two in Ireland linked to Mourinho's agent Jorge Mendes. He has reportedly made a deal with Spanish authorities to avoid a Supreme Court trial, which found his fellow Argentina captain Lionel Messi guilty of tax evasion, sentencing the Barcelona forward to 21 months in prison.

Mascherano was also convicted of tax fraud last year and was given a suspended one-year sentence.
