Cristiano Ronaldo to testify in tax fraud case on July 31

Cristiano Ronaldo to testify in tax fraud case on July 31

Spanish authorities have also recently filed papers against Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo, who is accused of evading tax of some 14.7m euros (£12.8m) by hiding income from image rights.

The Real star has been summoned to testify on July 31.

Spanish prosecutors have accused Ronaldo of defrauding the authorities of millions of euros in tax, which he has denied.

The four-time World Footballer of the Year has helped Real win the Champions League three times and La Liga twice.

The 54-year-old Mourinho, who coached Madrid from 2010-13, now coaches Manchester United.

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.

The move was aimed at providing more federal cybersecurity assistance to state and local governments. "One of the candidates (Mr. Johnson said Russian hacking didn't change election totals, but he can't be sure other meddling didn't influence public opinion.

The 32-year-old is now away with Portugal at the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation, where he has so far evaded questions over his future - including skipping the traditional man-of-the-match press conference after Sunday's draw with Mexico. "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. "Our priority is to keep our current core of players, and that is why we are not going to make any movements".

Spanish rivals Barcelona and Real Madrid hardly conduct direct transfers, a situation that worsened after the messy switch of Luis Figo in 2000.

Real Madrid have not received any bids from Manchester United for Alvaro Morata or for any of their players, claims Florentino Perez.

"I have not spoken with Ronaldo. Ronaldo is in a major tournament with his country and until that is over I can not talk to him", goal.com quoted Perez as saying.

The reports have been contradicted by other sources close to the player who say he is still assessing his options ahead of a meeting with the Madrid judge Monica Gomez Ferrer on July 31.

A two-time La Liga victor, his 285 goals in 265 league appearances mean he is second only to Barcelona's Lionel Messi in that competition.
