Cristiano Ronaldo summoned for July 31 tax hearing

Ronaldo and Mourinho are the latest members of the soccer elite to be accused of tax fraud in Spain.

Here's what Perez has had to say to Onda Cero about Ronaldo...

The Confederations Cup hosts take on the European champions in Moscow on Wednesday with Smolov's burgeoning reputation even leading to comparisons with the Real Madrid superstar.

"I still haven't spoken to Cristiano Ronaldo".

"Real Madrid have once again done something that nobody else has achieved to date", Perez said at a ceremony held in the presidential box at the Bernabeu after he assumed his position of re-elected Madrid president.

The Spaniard's agent Juanma Lopez revealed that Morata, who only made 19 starts last season, was keen on moving elsewhere to find more game time and labelled Old Trafford as a "very interesting option".

"I have not talked with Cristiano.... but they tell me has been treated badly in this country".

"I have not talked to him or his father".

"I'm sure he'll become a great player and we're following his progress".

Real Madrid player Cristiano Ronaldo will testify on July 31 in Madrid on allegations that he hid income from tax authorities between 2011 and 2014, the court said on Tuesday.

The Madrid electoral board met overnight and, with no other candidate putting themselves forward for election ahead of the deadline, it was confirmed that the long-serving Perez would continue in the role, taking his overall stay in the position to 18 years.

The accusation against Mourinho comes a week after the Madrid-based prosecutor's office accused Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo of defrauding Spain's tax office of 14.7 million euros ($16.5 million).

Known as "the Special One", the 54-year-old Mourinho is one of the most prominent and successful coaches in football today.

According to Italian publication Tuttosport (via the Daily Mail), United are preparing to offer Real Madrid goalkeeper David de Gea plus a huge cash sum of £183 million for Ronaldo and Morata.

Prosecutors accuse the Portugal worldwide of evading tax via a shell company based in the British Virgin Islands and another in Ireland, known for its low corporate tax rate.
