  • Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho

A statement issued by the section for economic crimes of Madrid's provincial state prosecutor's office said its investigations indicated that Mourinho committed tax fraud in 2011 and 2012. The prosecutor recommended a sentence of 16 months and a fine of almost 800,000 euros ($890,000).

Lionel Messi, Neymar, after a few days ago Cristiano Ronaldo has been charged with tax evasion.

The Spanish prosecutor says the Real Madrid forward knowingly used a business structure to hide his image rights income in Spain between 2011 and 2014.

The reigning champions of Europe have confirmed, via their official website: "Following the publication in today's AS newspaper of information concerning the signing of Jose Mourinho as the manager of our club, Real Madrid wishes to emphasise that said information is entirely false".

The report claimed that Ronaldo leaving Real could benefit a few of these players, but none more so than Bale, who is believed to want a greater role under Zinedine Zidane. Under Spanish law, a first-time offender is not required to serve time in jail for a sentence below two years.

But according to EFE there has been no such softening from the Portuguese global even though a payment upfront would not have been an admission of guilt and would still have allowed him to defend himself against accusations of tax fraud between 2011 and 2014.

According to the ESPN FC report, Di Maria "failed to declare €1.298m in earnings between 2012 and 2013, while on the books of Real Madrid, by ceding his image rights to an offshore company, Sunpex Corporation Inc, based in Panama".

Manchester United have taken further steps in their attempts to find a successor to star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, as they have reportedly opened talks with Real Madrid over a deal for Spanish striker Álvaro Morata.

Mascherano was also convicted of tax fraud last year and was given a suspended one-year sentence.
