Cristiano Ronaldo to Testify on the 31st of July


Cristiano Ronaldo will need to be in Madrid on the 31st of July instead of enjoying the holidays, in case Portugal win the Confederations Cup. The Real Madrid star have to testify in front of the judge at Pozuelo de Alarcón (Madrid) on the 31st of July after the prosecutor report accusing Cristiano Ronaldo of evading €14.7M.

Last week, the Spanish prosecutor presented a report where they accused Cristiano Ronaldo of fraud for €14.7M. They said that he had companies in the British Virgin Islands to hide money from the Spanish tax authorities. The idea was paying less taxes for the image rights. Cristiano Ronaldo had the same economic architecture in the United Kingdom, but this could not work for Spain.

After this announcement, the Portuguese newspaper A Bola published in the front page that Cristiano Ronaldo wanted to leave Spain. The player doesn’t feel love in the country and he’s very hurt for this accusations. According to this information, the forward has already told the club his intention to leave the club this summer.

Real Madrid published a statement defending his player and Florentino Pérez spoke about the issue. The president said he hasn’t spoken with Cristiano yet and he thinks that this is a misunderstanding. The footballer hired a legal company specialized in taxes to help him with the Spanish tax authorities.

Now, we’ll see Cristiano Ronaldo attending to the court to testify in front of the judge. We already saw these photos with Leo Messi, who was convicted for fraud some months ago. Cristiano Ronaldo said several times that he is not a criminal and he has always had the willingness of paying his taxes. For this reason, the Portuguese footballer doesn’t understand the media coverage about this issue and why he’s been prosecuted for this. Unfortunately he cannot avoid now the pictures when he has to attend to the court.
