Mourinho accused of €3.3m tax fraud in Spain

Perez assured the fans that the Portugal global would be honouring his contract with Real Madrid while insisting that he would contact the star striker only after the conclusion of Portugal's Confederations Cup campaign.

Gestifute, a Portuguese-based soccer agency which represents Mourinho and Ronaldo, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

This scenario is one that a lot of Manchester United fans have been hoping and praying for and it will be the realization of a dream if it happens.

Onda Cero also asked Florentino Perez about rumours linking Real Madrid with Monaco wonderkid Kylian Mbappe.

He also confirmed that Ronaldo's contract was ring-fenced by a 1-billion euro release clause.

Mourinho owes the Spanish tax authorities £2.9m (€3.3m), according to a statement, which added it had presented a claim to a local court.

Cristiano Ronaldo has been accused of defrauding the Spanish authorities of taxes worth excess of £13 million ($AU22m) between 2011 and 2014.

The agency published copies of the certificates.

Cristiano Ronaldo set for July court date in tax fraud case. A judge will then decide if they are grounds to charge him with a crime.

And Ferdinand, who played with Ronaldo at United for six seasons, hopes his former club can finalise a deal for the four-time Ballon d'Or victor.

As for Mourinho, Manchester United 54-year-old Portuguese coach, he stands accused of two counts of tax fraud while he coached Real Madrid from 2010 to 2013.

In three years with Real Madrid, Mourinho won La Liga in 2012 and the Spanish Cup in 2011.

The 29-year-old and his father Jorge Horacio Messi were found guilty of using companies in Belize, Britain, Switzerland and Uruguay to avoid paying taxes on 4.16 million euros of Messi's income earned from his image rights from 2007-09.

Barcelona footballer Lionel Messi was given a 21-month sentence past year, which he is unlikely to serve, for having defrauded the national purse of 4.1 million euros of undeclared image rights earnings. The two were given 21-month jail sentences but neither is expected to serve prison time since it was a first offense and the sentence was under two years.

Sky Sports revealed last week that the current Ballon D'Or holder no longer wanted to play in Spain following a series of tax fraud allegations and subsequent media onslaught in his direction.
