Angel Di Maria agrees to deal in Spain tax fraud case

25 June 2017

"Jose Mourinho has not received any notification with regards to the news published today".

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

Asked about potential clubs Ronaldo could join, Perez said: "I'm not contemplating Ronaldo leaving".

The "Cristiano Ronaldo is desperate to leave Real Madrid" story was fun while it lasted.

Ronaldo is now under official investigation and will have to appear in the Pozuelo de Alarcon court No. 1 on July 31. The player is accused of defrauding tax authorities of €14.7m, by also hiding his income from image rights. Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao and Real Madrid defender Fabio Coentrao, who have also been accused of tax fraud in Spain, are also clients of Mendes.

A transfer doesn't seem likely, however, as the forward is a crucial player for Los Blancos, and his contract situation makes him close to untouchable.

Coentrao is suspected of failing to correctly declare € 1.3 million of income.

Sunday was practically brutal with temps in the high 90s in the daytime and high 80s lasting well into the evening in Menlo Park. Summer Solstice actually takes places this Tuesday, June 20th; the longest day of the year brings 22 hours of daylight.

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

Jose mourinho is now enjoying a reasonably successful season at Manchester united as he has managed to win 3 trophies in his first season with the red devils.

The football world in Spain has been rocked by charges of tax evasion or corruption pressed against some of its other leading stars.

Mascherano was also convicted of tax fraud last year and was given a suspended one-year sentence.

The two charges of fraud which he is pleading guilty to carry an eight-month prison sentence each, but under Spanish law, a first-time offender is not required to serve time in jail for a sentence below two years.

Previously his worldwide teammates Javier Mascherano accepted a one-year prison sentence as part of an appealing for tax evasion in January 2016 whereas Lionel Messi was also found guilty of tax evading and was sentenced to jail for 21 months, however, both were barred from going to prison.
