Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho accused of tax fraud

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

A transfer for Ronaldo would smash the world-record transfer fee of $116 million that Manchester United paid Juventus for Paul Pogba last summer, and it's not an offer you quickly make.

The 54-year-old Mourinho, who coached Madrid from 2010-13, now coaches Manchester United.

A prosecutor says he did not declare income from the use of his image rights in order to get an "illicit benefit". But tax authorities later found that some of the information presented in that settlement was incorrect, the prosecutors said.

Jose Mourinho is being accused of defrauding the Spanish government of up to 3.3 million pounds from 2011 and 2012 and has yet to give a statement regarding the claim.

Real Madrid's key footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to appear before a judge on July 31, following accusations of tax fraud by the Spanish authorities.

Real Madrid did not respond to requests for comment on the allegations against Mourihno or Ronaldo's hearing.

Unsettled Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo's woes deepened on Tuesday, when the Portuguese forward was summoned to appear in a Madrid court on July 31 to answer to four counts of tax evasion of 14.7 million euros.

That would leave four weeks before he is due to appear in court, with the date falling in the middle of Madrid's USA tour.

"Mourinho is the latest big name in football to have been accused of tax fraud in Spain", says The Independent, which reminds readers that past year Barcelona star Lionel Messi was handed a 21-month suspended prison sentence.
