Spanish state prosecutor accuses Jose Mourinho of tax fraud

Speaking on Spanish radio station Onda Cero on Monday night, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez said that he was not expecting Ronaldo's departure.

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, just outside Madrid, on June 27.

The claim, which dates to a period between 2011 and 2012, alleges that money due from the use of his image rights were steered into 'corporate structures [which] were used by the accused in order to hide revenues'.

It will now be up to a judge to decide whether to take the matter to court.

The 54-year-old Mourinho was Real Madrid coach from 2010-13.
