Ronaldo summoned to court, Mourinho accused of tax fraud

Reuters

A Spanish state prosecutor has accused former Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho of tax fraud worth 3.3 million euros ($3.7 million) in unpaid taxes.

Is Perez refusing to discuss United's interest until they meet their valuation of the player?

Perez went on to say that Madrid hadn't received any bids for Ronaldo, Morata or James Rodriguez.

"I have not spoken with him".

The 32-year-old is now away with Portugal at the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation, where he has so far evaded questions over his future - including skipping the traditional man-of-the-match press conference after Sunday's draw with Mexico.

"But something really freaky would have to happen if he were to leave this club".

Last Tuesday, a Madrid-based prosecutor's office accused Ronaldo of four counts of tax fraud totalling 14.7 million euros ($16.5 million).




Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao and Real Madrid defender Fabio Coentrao, who have also been accused of tax fraud in Spain, are also clients of Mendes.

Manchester United have been handed a boost in retaining their David de Gea after Real Madrid president Florentino Perez ruled out a move for the goalkeeper.

The 70-year-old construction magnate's third term in charge of Europe's most successful club spanning 15 years - 2000-2006 and since 2009 - will be rubber stamped at a ceremony at the Santiago Bernabeu later Monday.

Perez has dismissed speculation that Ronaldo is trying to put pressure on Real so that they will bear some of the burden of an eventual fine for tax evasion as Barcelona did for Lionel Messi.

Messi enjoyed another fine campaign at Camp Nou, scoring 54 goals in all competitions as Barca were dethroned by Madrid in LaLiga and lost in the Champions League quarter-finals.

The 32-year-old signed a new contract with Real until 2021 last November. He has claimed a haul of domestic trophies with Chelsea and other clubs.
