Ronaldo summoned to court, Mourinho accused of tax fraud

25 June, 2017, 01:25 | Author: Felix Jensen

Ronaldo and Mourinho are both clients of agent Jorge Mendes.

Cristiano Ronaldo is yet to discuss his future with Real Madrid in an attempt to fully focus on helping guide Portugal to another major worldwide title.

Perez said he could understand why the four-time world player of the year had been upset after he was accused last week of tax fraud.

Ronaldo faces no formal charge at this stage and is appearing in court as an "investigated person" and could be fined as much as £37m if he is found guilty.

Spanish prosecutors said on Tuesday that the Portuguese manager owes Spanish tax authorities 3.3 million euros ($3.7 million), a Madrid prosecutor said in a statement, adding it had presented a claim to a local court.

This Wednesday, the French newspaper L'Equipe published on their front page that PSG will be in wait just in case Cristiano Ronaldo finally decides to leave Spain.

Allegations of tax fraud - denied by Ronaldo - have thrown the four-time Ballon d'Or winner's future up in the air, with former club Manchester United linked.

Number of global displaced up to 65.6 million last year
The initiative started in 1998 to combat hostility in society towards refugees and asylum seekers. About two-thirds of the newly displaced people fled somewhere else in their own country.

The 54-year-old Mourinho, who coached Madrid from 2010 to 2013, was accused of "two offences against the public treasury", the prosecutor's office said in a statement.

The two were given 21-month jail sentences but neither is expected to serve prison time since it was a first offense and the sentence was under two years.

Argentina worldwide Di Maria is accused of failing to pay 1.3m euros to the Spanish tax authorities in 2012-2013 by giving up his image rights to companies based in tax havens, such as Panama.

However, the deal must be formally processed in a hearing before a judge.

Barcelona footballer Lionel Messi was given a 21-month sentence past year, which he is unlikely to serve, for having defrauded the national purse of 4.1 million euros of undeclared image rights earnings.

Barcelona's Lionel Messi was sentenced to a 21-month jail sentence and 2.09 million euro fine a year ago for tax fraud.
