Rio Ferdinand sends message to Cristiano Ronaldo about Man United return

Denis Irwin has claimed Jose Mourinho is the right man for Manchester United – and can inspire the club to a title challenge next season.Jose Mourinho was accused by Spanish authorities of failing to pay €3.3 million ($3.7 million) in taxes at Real Madrid as star player Cristiano Ronaldo was summoned to appear before a judge in July. “Up to this point, neither Hacienda [the tax office] nor the prosecutors have contacted Jose Mourinho or the advisers who were under contract during the [tax] inspection process”, Gestifute said in a statement.The 54-year-old Mourinho, who coached Madrid from 2010-13, now coaches Manchester United.”The Spanish government. through the tax department, issued a certificate in which it attested that he had regularised his position and was in compliance with all his tax obligations”, Gestifute said.The two are also bound by fresh tax fraud allegations, with Ronaldo set for a July 31 court date over $16.5 in unpaid taxes and Mourinho facing accusations of $3.6 million in unpaid taxes, with both cases related to image rights earnings.Real Madrid did not respond to requests for comment on the allegations against Mourihno or Ronaldo’s hearing.Unknown at this time whether this information is on the wish Ronaldo to leave real Madrid. His agent, Jorge Mendes (who also represents Mourinho), claimed in 2015 that his release clause is over $1 billion.Madrid president Florentino Perez has dismissed any talk of Ronaldo leaving the Spanish capital, stating he would only consider a deal if a club met his €1billion buyout clause.”I will talk with him when the Confederations Cup has finished”.Perez said: “I will always defend Cristiano as a person and as a footballer”. “We’ve not received offers for him (Ronaldo), Morata or James”.United’s former Real boss Mourinho is keen to sign Morata as the Red Devils target three or four high-quality summer acquisitions.
