Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho accused of tax fraud in Spain

Cristiano Ronaldo's woes deepened on Tuesday when the striker who reportedly wants to quit Real Madrid was summoned to appear before a judge investigating tax fraud.

But according to EFE there has been no such softening from the Portuguese global even though a payment upfront would not have been an admission of guilt and would still have allowed him to defend himself against accusations of tax fraud between 2011 and 2014.

Cristiano Ronaldo will appear in court on July 31 following allegations of tax evasion from Spanish prosecutors, according to reports.

Prosecutors accuse the 32-year-old of evading tax via a shell company based in the British Virgin Islands and another in Ireland, known for its low corporate tax rate.

A prosecutor said Mr Mourinho, 54, did not declare income from image rights in order to get an "illicit benefit".

Despite his insistence that Real can cope without him, Figo doesn't expect his fellow Portuguese, who is now in Russian Federation for the Confederations Cup, to exit the Bernabeu.

However, Mourinho's representatives Gestifute Media issued a statement yesterday evening saying their client had "not received any notification" of the actions by the authorities in Spain, as well as circulating a copy of an official tax document dated July 3, 2015 which covered the periods in question.

And Ferdinand, who played with Ronaldo at United for six seasons, hopes his former club can finalise a deal for the four-time Ballon d'Or victor.

Trudeau also reiterated he was disappointed in Trump's decision to abandon the Paris climate accord , but said he has not discussed reworking that deal.

"I have not spoken to Ronaldo, I have just heard what has been in the newspapers".

Speaking about Ronaldo's reported desire to leave the club, Perez added: 'Not I, nor anyone at Madrid, is contemplating that Cristiano could leave the club'. This is similar to deals struck with the Spanish taxman by fellow Argentinians Javier Mascherano and Lionel Messi past year.

Mr Mourinho was accused by prosecutors of defrauding Spain of €3.3m (£2.9m; $3.6m) in taxes while he was Real Madrid coach from 2011 to 2012.

"Ronaldo is a Real player and will continue to be so as far as we are concerned", Perez told Marca sports daily Tuesday.

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

The prison term will be suspended as is common in Spain for first offences for non-violent crimes carrying a sentence of less than two years.

The deal will have to be ratified by a judge when the case goes to court.
