Ronaldo summoned to court, Mourinho accused of tax fraud


The transfer market has been hit with a trigger following Ronaldo's hint that he could leave Spain if he is eventually hammered in the tax case.

Spanish authorities have also recently filed papers against Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo, who is accused of evading tax of some 14.7m euros (£12.8m) by hiding income from image rights. "Ronaldo is in a major tournament with his country and until that is over I can not talk to him", goal.com quoted Perez as saying.

Mourinho, who has won 25 trophies with clubs in Portugal, Italy, Spain and England, managed Real from 2010 and 2013, winning the Spanish league and the Super Cup in 2012 and the Copa del Rey in 2011.

According to media reports Ronaldo is unsettled at Real Madrid because he believes the European champions did not back him as fully as he had hoped in his dispute with the taxman.

Former Manchester United winger Angel Di Maria has been given a one-year prison sentence and fined 2million euros (£1.76million) after pleading guilty to two counts of tax fraud in Spain. "To this date, neither the Spanish tax authorities, nor the public prosecutor have contacted Jose Mourinho or his advisers who were hired for the inspection process".

However, Real president Florentino Perez revealed on Tuesday that he has not held talks with Ronaldo about his future at the club.

The bill establishes a review process for Congress to have a say whether the White House eases Russian Federation sanctions. They blocked USA companies such as Exxon Mobil, where Tillerson was chairman, from investing in such projects.

"It's all very odd because Cristiano is an incredible footballer and a great person, let's see what will happen".

Was Real Madrid going to let its all goal scoring leader exit? Cristiano is a good guy, I will have to talk with Cristiano and see what's happening.

This has, according to the AS report, been enough for Ronaldo to reconsider his decision to leave the club.

Cristiano Ronaldo's solitary worldwide goal, which was his 74th senior global goal, was enough to hand Portugal Confederation Cup victory over hosts Russian Federation.

Manchester United were naturally touted as a potential destination for the Portugal worldwide in the summer transfer window given his emotional ties to Old Trafford.
