Di Maria strikes deal with Spanish prosecutor in tax case

If Ronaldo makes the payment it would not be an admission of guilt and he could still contest the Spanish public prosecutor's allegations in court.

Ronaldo is now under official investigation and will have to appear in the Pozuelo de Alarcon court No. 1 on July 31.

Rumours that the Portuguese wants to leave the club came days after he was accused of tax fraud by the Spanish authorities, but Perez has insisted the superstar is not trying to manipulate Real into paying his possible fine.

Re-elected Real Madrid president Florentino Perez confirmed he has yet to speak to Cristiano Ronaldo about his future but the situation was "very strange".

Ronaldo's future at Real Madrid looked guaranteed after lifting his third Champions League title with the club earlier this month, the Portugal worldwide scoring twice in a 4-1 win over Juventus.

Ronaldo has also complained on multiple occasions previously, about Real supporters, who have resorted at times to jeering and booing his performance on the pitch. Real Madrid fans are divided over the development with some expressing optimism that their goal machine is going nowhere why some have taken the wait and see position as events unfolds.

The former Real Madrid boss has been accused of defrauding tax authorities to the tune of €3.3million by a Spanish regional prosecutor, with a complaint filed on Tuesday.

The player led Real Madrid to victory in both Spanish and European competition titles, namely La Liga and Champions League. I can only say that we all have to fulfil our obligations when it comes to taxes.

Mourinho, who is now Manchester United manager, is accused of using a corporate structure to hide image rights earnings from the taxman in 2011 and 2012. "We have not had an offer from Cristiano.the Sheikh at PSG is a friend of mine and he hasn't called me nor have we talked".

Ronaldo is now on global duty with Portugal at the Confederations Cup.

As per a report in El Mundo, in Spain, Ronaldo is speculated to have diverted revenues from image rights to the tune of 150 million Euros to tax havens.
