Tax fraud case: Ronaldo to appear in court July 31

The Portuguese worldwide, whose header salvaged 1-0 win over Russian Federation in Wednesday's Confederations Cup, has been targeted by Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and AS Monaco after a Spanish authorities accused Ronaldo of tax-fraud evasions, per Marca.

And it seems the Real Madrid supremo's words have had their required effect as according to Spanish daily AS, Ronaldo is pleased with the way Perez defended and spoke about him in the Spanish media.

The funds raised from the superstar's exit could then see Real land other potential big-name targets, such as Kylian Mbappe and Paulo Dybala.

The allegations against Mourinho follow those made against Cristiano Ronaldo by Spanish tax authorities last week, which led to the player disclosing a wish to leave the country and perhaps work with Mourinho again at Old Trafford. Let us know in the comments section below.

Ronaldo has scored a staggering 285 times in 265 games in La Liga to establish himself as Real Madrid's record goal-scorer of all-time.

Ronaldo was livid over being singled out for disproportionate treatment after the Spanish prosecutors accused him of defrauding the authorities of €14.7m (£12.8m).

In addition, they say he only declared 11.5 million euros of Spanish-related income from 2011 to 2014, while what he really earned during that time was close to 43 million euros.

In a dramatic turn of events since scoring a brace to seal back-to-back Champions League titles for Real Madrid earlier in the month, the 32-year-old's future at the Santiago Bernabeu looks far from certain following reports over the past few days.

Guide "Manchester United" is not convinced that the club needs to buy a striker "real" Cristiano Ronaldo. "No offer has been received for him".

"But I still feel that Real Madrid probably hold all the cards, it's all down to them and it will be their final decision".

Insisting that everyone must comply with their tax obligations, the Madrid president remained hopeful that Ronaldo would will meet his tax requirements and that all the confusion would be cleared up soon.

Ronaldo - on duty for Portugal at the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation which ends on July 2 - is facing four charges of fraud through offshore companies between 2011 and 2014.
