Argentine agrees deal in Spain over tax fraud

Share

The Real Madrid star is accused of defrauding Spanish authorities of €14.7m (£12.95m) between 2011 and 2014 and will now testify on July 31, it has been confirmed.

Mourinho was one of many Jose Mendes clients implicated in a tax fraud scandal uncovered by Football Leaks past year, per Agence France-Presse (via Yahoo Sports). "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", a statement on the Gestifute website reads.

"Jose Mourinho has not received any notification with regards to the news published Tuesday".

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

The Portuguese manager owes Spanish tax authorities 3.3 million euros ($3.7 million), a Madrid prosecutor said in a statement, adding it had presented a claim to a local court.

Perez said a very unusual thing would need to happen for Cristiano to leave "Los Blancos", he denied any offer for the player and refused to make conclusions before speaking to him.

The prosecutor said last Tuesday that there was evidence that Ronaldo used a shell company in the Virgin Islands to hide the money he had made from image rights.

Perez said he could understood why Ronaldo had been upset after he was accused last week of tax fraud.

It will now be up to a judge to decide whether the matter should proceed to court.

One thing which is common among all of them is the fact that they have always denied the allegations even though Lionel Messi and Javier Mascherano have already been found guilty and sentenced.

Those include Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo, who played under Mr Mourinho and shares the same agent.

Under Spanish law, a first-time offender is not required to serve time in jail for a sentence below two years.
