Ronaldo summoned to court, Mourinho accused of tax fraud

The reigning Ballon d'Or and Best FIFA Men's Player award victor is believed to feel singled out for disproportionate treatment by the prosecutors.

Free-spending Paris St Germain have also been linked with a player that Perez insists there have been no bids for, nor he says has there been any offers for Alvaro Morata or James Rodriguez.

"However I hope that the situation will be solved soon, we dont' want Cristiano to go".

'I have complete confidence that he is innocent, he has always wanted to fulfil his fiscal commitments, ' Perez said.

"I mean it's not my decision, it's something Cristiano and Real Madrid have to figure out".

But Perez said: 'He has a contract and he has to fulfil it. "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".

"I hope [he'll return]", the former England global is quoted as saying by the Manchester Evening News at an event in Belfast.

Why does Ronaldo want to leave?

The claims against Mourinho come amid a lengthening list of tax fraud cases involving soccer stars in Spain.

He is accused of evading tax to the value of 14.7m euros (£13m; $16m) between 2011 and 2014.

Ronaldo's agency, Gestifute, released a statement after the accusations, saying "it is clear that the player did not try to evade taxes" and there was "no offshore structure for evading taxes".

"The clause for Cristiano is £1bn", he told Spanish Onda Cero.

Of course, the stories surrounding Ronaldo's future were treated with plenty of suspicion and cynicism as it was believed that he was simply stalling for time until Real officials made the taxman problems disappear.

He was presented at the Bernabeu in front of 80,000 fans, as Perez attempted to bring together a second group of "Galacticos".

He has also helped his team to win two La Liga titles after joining it on transfer from Manchester United for a ten record 80 million pounds in 2009.

A two-time La Liga victor, his 285 goals in 265 league appearances mean he is second only to Barcelona's Lionel Messi in that competition.
