Jose Mourinho latest to be accused of tax fraud in Spain

Jose Mourinho latest to be accused of tax fraud in Spain

Ronaldo is reported to have been taken aback by the response to his quit threat - particularly the words of president Florentino Perez - and is going to rethink his decision.

Prosecutors in Madrid recently filed a complaint to a court that accused the four-time Ballon d'Or victor of a "voluntary" and "conscious" breach of his tax obligations, claiming the 32-year-old created a "business structure" in 2010 to hide earnings from image rights between 2011 and 2014, thus defrauding the Spanish tax authorities to the tune of €14.7million.

José Mourinho would join a growing list of football stars being investigated and prosecuted in Spain over accusations of tax evasion, in particular in connection with allegedly undeclared income from the sale of image rights by using companies based outside the country.

Ronaldo is with Portugal at the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation and has not said anything about his future since the "A Bola" story was published.

Do you ever have any question about anything you wish to ask and get answer? "Cristiano is not a business, it is history of Real Madrid".




The Portugal global was immediately linked with a return to Manchester United, with Paris Saint-Germain the only other side seriously in the frame after Bayern Munich dismissed reports of their interest.

According to media reports, Ronaldo is unsettled at Madrid because he believes Real did not back him as fully as he had hoped in his dispute with the taxman. Should he leave the Bernabeu, there are only a number of clubs in the world can afford him - some of which are in England. The 32-year-old signed a new contract with Real Madrid until 2021 last November and has a release clause of one billion euros ($1.11 billion).

"I haven't spoken with Cristiano, I learned about it because of what came out in the newspapers. All this is very odd", Perez said. Not I nor anyone at Madrid is contemplating that Cristiano could leave the club.

Perez, a 70-year-old construction magnate, was elected unopposed on Monday for a third term in charge of Europe's most successful club.

"It will be a great loss if we lose Ronaldo and it is something we should avoid".
