Mourinho accused of tax fraud during Real Madrid stint

21 June 2017

The former Real Madrid boss has been accused of defrauding tax authorities to the tune of €3.3million by a Spanish regional prosecutor, with a complaint filed on Tuesday.

"From now on it will be the judge in charge of the case who will take the necessary steps to determine the possible responsibilities of Mr Mourinho".

However, Mourinho claims that he has not been informed of any charges and revealed that he has a certificate stating that he had been in compliance with his obligations. Meanwhile, Ronaldo has been linked to Manchester United and other top clubs after reportedly threatening to leave Real and quit Spain.

This assumes, however, that Ronaldo is still a Madrid player, with a source confirming to ESPN FC that he wants to leave Madrid and Spain as a result of accusations from the Spanish tax authorities and the media. Both Ronaldo and Mourinho are represented by agent Mendes, who will act to act as a peacemaker.
