Spanish state prosecutor accuses Jose Mourinho of tax fraud

Jose Mourinho now manages Manchester United.

Lindelof, who has 12 global caps to his name with Sweden, is Mourinho's first signing this summer and is expected to be a first choice centre half at Manchester United next season.

The prosecutor said last Tuesday that there was evidence that Ronaldo used a shell company in the Virgin Islands to hide the money he made from image rights.

The investigation was opened after the Spanish tax authorities informed the Public Prosecutor's Office about perceived discrepancies in the data, with a Madrid judge now set to determine the next stage of the process.

Jose Mourinho has reportedly defrauded Spain of €3.3m in taxes.

Ronaldo, who is in Russian Federation at the Confederations Cup playing for Portugal, has played in Spain for Real Madrid since 2009.

Both Ronaldo and Mourinho are clients of football super-agent Jorge Mendes, who has been summoned to appear before the court at Pozuelo de Alarcon on June 27.

Four-time Ballon d'Or victor Ronaldo is accused of diverting €150m of advertising revenue and image rights through a shell company in the British Virgin Islands, a tax haven.

Rival club Barcelona's forward Lionel Messi, along with his father, have already been convicted by Barcelona court in tax fraud case.

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

The Spanish prosecutors are claiming that the Portuguese manager has failed to account his transactions regarding image rights during the years 2011 and 2012. He has been heavily linked with a move for Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata among many others, but hasn't yet secured his signature.

Cristiano Ronaldo has also denied defrauding Spanish authorities out of €15million between 2011 and 2014.

Barcelona defender Javier Mascherano also agreed a one-year suspended sentence with authorities for tax fraud last year.
