Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho accused of tax evasion in Spain

Spanish prosecutors have filed a lawsuit against the player accusing him of defrauding tax authorities of 14.7 million euros.

Outraged at being unfairly treated by Spanish tax authorities, Ronaldo had earlier expressed his intentions to leave Real Madrid C.F. and Spain.

The former United star has a release clause of one billion euros ($1.12 billion) written into his Real Madrid contract, having signed a five-year deal in November 2016. I know Cristiano and he is a good guy, both as a professional and a person.

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

But the centre-half was playing a predictably straight bat when quizzed on the issue ahead of Portugal's Confederations Cup clash with Russian Federation in Moscow.

'I have complete confidence that he is innocent, he has always wanted to fulfil his fiscal commitments, ' Perez said.

Cristiano Ronaldo has been persuaded by his lawyers to pay the £12.9million he is accused of defrauding the Spanish tax authorities, according to reports in Madrid.

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

Speculation is rife that the Portugal global could return to Manchester United, where he spent six years before leaving in a then-world record £80m deal to Madrid in 2009. Reports are now also claiming that Real Madrid is willing to pay the tax amount but the Real Madrid president also refuted this, saying that Ronaldo wouldn't want them to do so, The Guardian reported.

A ruthless Cristiano Ronaldo scored a dazzling hat-trick to lead Real Madrid to a crushing 3-0 victory over city rivals Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final on 2 May 2017.

The 4-time Ballon d'Or victor was linked with a return to Manchester United, while moves to Paris Saint-Germain and other cash-rich clubs were also speculated.

The proximity of Ronaldo's date in court and desire to leave the Spanish club could put the star in jeopardy of missing El Clasico on July 29 in Miami against rival Lionel Messi and Barcelona. "We have not had an offer from Cristiano. the Sheikh at PSG is a friend of mine and he hasn't called me nor have we talked".
