Ronaldo summoned to court, Mourinho accused of tax fraud

The news follows reports in Spain that suggest Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo will appear in court on July 31 in relation to separate accusations of tax fraud.A Spanish state prosecutor last week accused him of failing to pay 14.8 million euros on image rights earned between 2011 and 2014, saying he used a shell company in the Virgin Islands to ‘create a screen in order to hide his total income’.Ronaldo, meanwhile, has said that will testify in his own tax fraud case, having denied all wrong doing. This is very odd and in the next few days I’ll talk to him.Perez: “I’ll tell you if he was born to play for Madrid or not!”Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has his hopes on Cristiano Ronaldo returning to Old Trafford this summer but is not sure if the 32-year-old will leave Real Madrid.Unhappy Ronaldo has been linked to Manchester United and other top clubs after reportedly threatening to leave Real and quit Spain after running into problems with tax authorities. However, it’s in his own interests to hold back, just as it’s in the interests of Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, the one person at the Bernabeu with more power, to be selective with his version of events.Costa Rica goalkeeper Navas was criticised at several points last season for unconvincing displays which cost Real points leading to reports in the Spanish media that the club would make another move for De Gea. “I I don’t consider it, especially without speaking with him”, Pérez said in the radiostation Onda Cero.Spanish tax authorities are also targeting Jose Mourinho, the Manchester United manager who was on Tuesday accused of evading 3.3 million euro ($3.7 million) in tax during his stay at Real Madrid.Madrid’s long-time president said the club had not received any transfer offers for Ronaldo. “And we haven’t done any offer for anybody”. “I don’t know if Zidane has called him as well, I am not going to do it because I want him to rest during his holiday“. I have a good relationship with him after working together for eight years. He has a contract with us so he’s a Madrid player.
