José Mourinho Has Been Accused Of €3.3m Tax Fraud By Spanish Prosecutors

Manchester United boss José Mourinho has been accused of tax fraud by Spanish prosecutors investigating his time as Real Madrid’s head coach.

It is understood that the Portuguese manager is accused of defrauding Spain of €3.3m (£2.9m; $3.6m) in taxes between 2011 and 2012.

Although, Mourinho is yet to comment on the allegation, a prosecutor claimed he did not declare income from the use of his image rights in order to get an “illicit benefit”.

In a statement released on Tuesday, a prosecutor in Madrid said the Portuguese manager had committed two counts of tax fraud in 2011 and 2012, saying that “corporate structures were used by the accused in order to conceal revenues generated from his image rights”.

Mourinho failed to declare that income when he submitted his tax returns in the relevant years “with the intention of deriving unlawful benefit”, the prosecutor alleges.

It was gathered that a judge will decide whether the matter will go to court.

Another big name in football accused of the tax fraud is Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo, who played under Mr Mourinho and shares the same agent.

The player is accused of defrauding tax authorities of €14.7m, by also hiding his income from image rights.

Madrid’s regional state prosecutor has alleged the Portugal player “intentionally” did not declare income of €28.4m related to image rights, and declared €11.5m of earnings from 2011-14 when his real income was almost €43m.

The prosecutor also alleged that the player falsely reported income as coming from real estate, which it said had greatly reduced his tax rate.

Ronaldo denies the accusations and is threatening to leave Spain.

The Portuguese international is set to give evidence in his case on 31 July.

Sevilla Close To Signing Manchester City’s Nolito

Featured Image

Sevilla president Jose Castro has given an update on the club’s pursuit of Manchester City’s Nolito.

Nolito has declared he wants to leave City this summer and has mentioned interest from Sevilla and former club Celta Vigo.

“When we talk about top players, we can not say things are done, but we are advancing with some players and one of them is Nolito,” he told Radio Sevilla.

“We are getting into the position so he can play with Sevilla.”

City paid Celta Vigo 18 million euros for the player just last summer, so Castro understands the money involved in a deal for a player of this kind of stature.

The Sevilla chief is also not ruling out a deal for Stevan Jovetic, after a successful loan spell from Inter last campaign.

An approach has already been rejected, however he claims deals will be done before July 3, which is the scheduled date for a return to work.

Agent: Bayern Disappointed Lewandowski

Featured Image

Robert Lewandowski’s agent, says he was quite disappointed Bayern Munich could not aid him in finishing top of the goalscoring charts in the 2016-17 season.

Aubameyang was the Bundesliga highest goalscorer after scoring a brace on the last day of the season.

The Gabon international finished with a goal more than Lewandowski, who did not score a goal on their final day.

“Robert told me that he got no support and that the coach gave no call to help him in the last game to win the top-scorer title,” representative Maik Barthel told Kicker .

“He was disappointed as I have never seen him before. He really hoped that the team would support him proactively.”

Lewandowski had already expressed his anger over the issue earlier this month.

“It does not hurt anymore, but it did at first,” he was quoted as saying by ESPN. “Maybe because I was not completely satisfied with the way my team helped me.

“Immediately after the last game, I felt anger. I was disappointed with my team. That was the feeling I had.”

Bayern Munich Brand Cristiano Ronaldo Transfer Link As ‘Fake News’

Featured Image

Bayern Munich insist there is no basis to the speculation linking them with a move for Cristiano Ronaldo.

In a post labelled the ‘hoax of the day’ on the club’s website, Bayern said they were not looking to sign the Real Madrid forward.

“We are accustomed to speculating intensively on possible ins and outs during the transfer period,” Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said.

“As a rule, we do not comment on these rumours. But, in the case of Ronaldo, we want to clarify once and for all that this rumour has no basis and must be referred to the realm of the fable.”

Considering Cristiano Ronaldo scored five goals against Bayern Munich in two Champions League games this season, it is a surprise that the German champions aren’t keen on the Portuguese superstar.

This has caused great furore in Germany, with Bild and many other publications getting excited that Ronaldo was on his way to Munich.

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 post.

The 70-year-old is now set to remain as president of the European and Spanish champions until 2021, taking his overall stay in the position to 18 years.

A club statement read: “In Madrid, on 19 June 2017, at 00:01 hours, the electoral board of Real Madrid met at their headquarters in order to deal with and decide the issues listed below.

Report: Real Madrid Complete Signing Of Atletico Madrid’s Theo Hernandez

Featured Image

Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have finalised an agreement for the transfer of defender Theo Hernandez to the European champions, reports Marca.

Madrid have accepted Atletico’s request to pay €26m (£22.7m), €2m (£1.7m) more than the value of the full-back’s buyout clause. Real will pay the full amount in four instalments.

Theo will be presented as a new Real Madrid player in the first week of July.

Hernandez, 19, has been part of the Los Rojiblancos youth system since 2008, and his move will be seen as a huge slap in the face for the Atletico hierarchy.

And the additional payment is meant to be a gesture of good will to help ease the rift between the clubs.

Real’s approach for Hernandez – who spent last season on loan at Alaves – breaks a 17-year-old ‘non-aggression pact’ between the bitter Madrid rivals.

Hernandez played 38 goals in all competitions and netted twice as the newly-promoted side finished a creditable ninth in La Liga.

He will now become the first player since Santiago Scolari in 2000 to make the switch from Atleti to Real.

Marco Verratti Threatens To Boycott PSG Pre-season Training

Featured Image

Marco Verratti is contemplating missing the start of Paris Saint-Germain’s pre-season training in order to force through a move to Barcelona, reports L’Equipe.

Verratti is Barca’s main transfer target this summer and the Italian wants to leave the French capital.

PSG chiefs do not want to sell the midfielder, although the player himself has intimated to his current club he is keen to move to the camp Nou this summer.

As such, Verratti is considering not turning up for the first day of PSG’s pre-season training, which starts on July 4.

Verratti is valued in excess of €80 million (£69.9m) by PSG, who will do everything possible to keep him at the club despite his latest threat.

Conte would love to be reunited with Verratti – who has described the Chelsea manager as ‘the best coach I have ever worked with’ previously – but he may be tempted elsewhere.

During the meeting with Henrique, he stated that his preference was to join Barcelona, who have made the 24-year-old a priority signing.
