Cristiano Ronaldo : Real Madrid star summoned for July 31 tax hearing

Cristiano Ronaldo : Real Madrid star summoned for July 31 tax hearing

The accusation against Mourinho comes a week after the Madrid-based prosecutor's office accused Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo of defrauding Spain's tax office of 14.7 million euros ($16.5 million).

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.

The four-time Ballon d'Or victor is alleged to have created a "business structure" in 2010 to hide his earnings from image rights between 2011 and 2014.

Ronaldo's future at Real Madrid looked guaranteed after lifting his third Champions League title with the club earlier this month, the Portugal worldwide scoring twice in a 4-1 win over Juventus.

He said he would push for the release of the remaining USA prisoners as well as six South Koreans held in the country. Otto was charged with spying by the paranoid North Korean regime , which then sentenced him to 15 years in prison.

Madrid's long-time president said the club had not received any transfer offers for Ronaldo. The 32-year-old signed a new contract with Real Madrid until 2021 last November and has a release clause of one billion euros ($1.11 billion).

In an earlier report Marca said Ronaldo has told his teammates he was leaving and "there is no turning back".

"That's why I will speak with him when he gets back and see what's up", Perez told Spanish radio Onda Cero late Monday.

Ronaldo, who is in Russian Federation at the Confederations Cup with Portugal's national soccer team, has played in Spain for Real Madrid since 2009. "I found out about all this from a newspaper", Perez said.

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

His first big challenge is keeping Ronaldo at the club he joined in 2009 from Manchester United for a record 94 million euros ($105.3 million).

Ronaldo is reportedly ready to quit Madrid after allegations that he owes £12.9 million in unpaid taxes.
