They said Mourinho had already settled a previous claim relating to his Spanish taxes after a 2014 inquiry, which resulted in a penalty of 1.15 million euros ($F2.65m).

José Mourinho allegedly defrauded € 3.3 million during his time in the Spanish capital between 2011 and 2012. It's something we've all thought about as fans and whether or not this is just a PR ploy from Ronaldo and his entourage to leverage more power against Real Madrid.

The accusations against Mr Mourinho, now the manager of Manchester United, date back to his time as coach at Real Madrid.

In Ronaldo's case, the former Manchester United winger is accused of having diverted some €150m of advertising revenue through a shell company in the British Virgin Islands.

"I'm a Man United fan, and my kids love him, so I hope that he'll be back".

Real Madrid did not respond to requests for comment on the allegations against Mourihno or Ronaldo's hearing.

But tax authorities later found that some of the information presented in that settlement was incorrect, the prosecutors said.

"Jose Mourinho has not received any notification with regards to the news published today".

Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo calls for referee's attention during the Confederations Cup, Group A soccer match between Portugal and Mexico, at the Kazan Arena, Russia, Sunday, June 18, 2017.

"The Spanish government. through the tax department, issued a certificate in which it attested that he had regularised his position and was in compliance with all his tax obligations", Gestifute said.

Manchester United have been heavily linked with a move for Ronaldo in recent days amid reports that the Portugal global wants to quit Spain this summer.

"From now on it will be the judge in charge of the case who will take the necessary steps to determine the possible responsibilities of Mr Mourinho".

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

Di Maria, who now plays for French club Paris Saint-Germain, will likely not serve any prison time because sentences of less than two years for first-time offenders are usually suspended.
