Mourinho accused of tax fraud, Ronaldo before judge

Share

A number of high-profile football stars have been accused of tax avoidance in recent months, with Cristiano Ronaldo the most recent example.

Spanish authorities have also recently filed papers against Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo, who is accused of evading tax of some €14.7m by hiding income from image rights.

Cristiano Ronaldo is yet to discuss his future with Real Madrid in an attempt to fully focus on helping guide Portugal to another major worldwide title.

However Real club president Florentino Perez has insisted that Ronaldo will be staying at the club and no offer has been received to tempt him away.

Jose Mourinho also continues to be linked with a move for Morata's superstar team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo who has grown increasingly frustrated with life at the Bernabeu.

Ronaldo has denied any wrongdoing, while Real Madrid released a statement saying they had "full confidence" in their player and were "absolutely convinced that (he) will prove his total innocence".

"I try to solve the problems, those of Cristiano and those of many others".

All these cases are scrutinised from image rights on sponsored deals made by players, not salaries paid by clubs.

Uber heads in new direction with tipping option
Lyft Inc ., which is Uber's chief ride-services competitor in the US , has long allowed drivers to collect tips through its app. Recently, the scandal-ridden company fired more than 20 people after it had investigated over 100 sexual harassment complaints.

Portuguese sports daily A Bola also claimed that Perez had already been informed of the 32-year-old's decision.

A statement issued by the section for economic crimes of Madrid's provincial state prosecutor's office said its investigations indicated that Mourinho committed two counts of tax fraud in 2011 and 2012.

Ronaldo scored 42 goals in all competitions - 25 of those coming in LaLiga as Madrid claimed the league for the first time since 2012 after dethroning bitter rivals Barcelona.

Prosecutors claim that the Portuguese manager - who took over at Manchester United a year ago - failed to declare income of 1.6 million euros in 2011 and 1.7 million euros in 2012.

There have been suggestions that Ronaldo is using links to both United and Paris Saint-Germain to earn a new contract at Real Madrid or in hope of stopping or quietening allegations of tax avoidance against him.
