Spain newspaper El Confidencial has said that the Argentina winger will admit to two counts of tax fraud after an agreement was reached between the former Real Madrid midfielder's lawyers and the public prosecutor on Wednesday. Perez will also seek showdown talks with Ronaldo to clarify his future, but only after Portugal's participation in the Confederations Cup comes to an end. He's coaching Manchester United.
"He always told me he is at ease in Real Madrid".
Cristiano Ronaldo and José Mourinho are both clients of the football agent Jorge Mendes.
Mourinho is yet to release a statement about the allegations.
In three years with Real Madrid, Mourinho won La Liga in 2012 and the Spanish Cup in 2011.
The agency published copies of the certificates.
In this way, Lionel Messi has been found guilty of fraud, and Cristiano Ronaldo accused by prosecutors of evading €14.7m.
Ronaldo is now under official investigation and will have to appear in the Pozuelo de Alarcon court No. 1 on July 31.
He has gone on to deny any wrongdoing, and went on to detail what he spent on taxes during his time living in Spain between 2010 and 2013.
Asked about potential clubs Ronaldo could join, Perez said: "I'm not contemplating Cristiano leaving". The Madrid prosecutor says the case was presented to a local court.
Mourinho has been accused of defrauding Spain of some $3.7 million by, according to a Spanish prosecutor, using shell companies in the Virgin Islands and Ireland to "hide profits made from image rights". Now it is up to the Barcelona trial court to decide whether the sentences should be suspended in accordance with Spanish custom for first-time offenders whose prison terms do not exceed two years.
