Ronaldo summoned to court, Mourinho accused of tax fraud

Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo calls for referee's attention during the Confederations Cup Group A soccer match between Portugal and Mexico at the Kazan Arena Russia Sunday

Prosecutors said he had failed to declare revenues from his image rights in his Spanish income tax declarations from 2011 and 2012, "with the aim of obtaining illicit profits".

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

The Portugal global will have to appear in the Pozuelo de Alarcon court No. 1 on July 31. "If he's angry it's because he feels unjustly treated", he told Spanish radio station Onda Cero.

Meanwhile, Florentino Perez admitted he has not spoken with the Portuguese about his desire to leave the club in the wake of the investigations. "What I have been told is that he has the same structure [in Spain] that he had in England - and there was no problem there". I have found everything out through the newspapers. What happened with the tax authorities was after the game.

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has his hopes on Cristiano Ronaldo returning to Old Trafford this summer but is not sure if the 32-year-old will leave Real Madrid. 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.


Last year, Real Madrid signed Ronaldo to a contract extension that would keep him with the team through June 2021, and his agent claims that his buyout clause is over $1 billion, which clearly limits the realistic suitors. He's a very good person.

The question of Ronaldo using tactics to get the club to pay for a possible fine makes no sense because he is not like that.

Perez said on Monday that "as far as I know Cristiano has always met (his fiscal obligations)" and that "it all must be some sort of misunderstanding that will be cleared up quickly".

"Cristiano is not angry about who has to pay his fine".
