Spanish state prosecutor accuses Jose Mourinho of tax fraud

Spanish state prosecutor accuses Jose Mourinho of tax fraud

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.

Mourinho is under suspicion of having committed two offences in relation to personal income tax, but the 54-year-old has denied any wrongdoing.

Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for attacking reinforcements this summer as Jose Mourinho prepares his team for a return to the Champions League next season.

CCH Daily has contacted Mourinho's representatives for comment.

Other clients of Mendes who have ended up in Spain include the Portuguese full-back Fabio Coentrao - on the verge of joining Sporting Lisbon on loan from Real Madrid - and Colombian striker Radamel Falcao, now with Monaco but formerly at Atletico Madrid.

With Paris St Germain star Angel Di Maria pleading guilty to tax fraud in Spain this week, it has come to light that he used the same two Irish companies that have figured in similar investigations into Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho.

He will appear in court at the end of July to defend himself, although there is no formal charge at this stage.

Founding partner at law firm Milestone International Tax Consultants Miles Dean said the case was likely to hinge on when income rights were assigned to the company, which he said was likely to have occurred before Mourinho, who previously managed Chelsea and Inter Milan, took a job in Spain.

The accusations against Ronaldo have caused speculation in Portugal and Spain that he is now considering leaving the country to play elsewhere.

Mr Mourinho has been accused of two counts of tax fraud - €1.6m in 2011 and €1.7m in 2012.

For example, tax on any earnings in 2012 could be paid as late June 30, 2013 which would also enable the Spanish tax authorities to look back that far in their records for what they consider to be more potential breaches. The Madrid prosecutor said the case was presented to a local court.
