Jose Mourinho, Portuguese coach of Manchester United, has reached an oral agreement with the Office of the Prosecutor for which he pleads guilty to two crimes against the Public Treasury and agrees to pay 800,000 euros in fines to avoid punishment of prison.
Fiscal sources have informed to Efe that the defense of the Portuguese trainer sent a writing to the Public Ministry a few days ago in which it proposed the terms of this agreement, advanced today by the newspaper El Mundo.  The Court of Instruction number 4 of Pozuelo de Alarcón (Madrid) investigates Mourinho after a complaint filed by the Economic Crimes Section of the Prosecutor's Office of Madrid in which he is accused of defrauding 3.3 million euros from his image rights during his time as coach of Real Madrid.
And now, after studying the letter of Mourinho's lawyers, the Prosecutor's Office has reached a verbal agreement and only eda formalize it in writing in the coming weeks, although Finance has not yet ruled on it.
In his complaint, the Public Prosecutor ensures that the Portuguese technician had committed two crimes against the Treasury in relation to the Tax on the Income of the Physical Persons (IRPF) in the years 2011 and 2012, when he trained Real Madrid. The amount defrauded amounts to 3,304,670 euros (1,611,537 euros in 2011 and 1,693,133 euros in 2012).
The Treasury issued a report to the Office of the Prosecutor in which it appears that before September 17, 2004, Mourinho signed a contract by which he transferred his rights of image to the company with headquarters in the British Virgin Islands Kooper Services SA
And that day he signed a new contract of transfer of his rights of image between Kooper and the Irish Multisports & Image Management Limited. Four years later, the Irish company signed a representation contract with Polaris Sports Limited, which had the same registered office, to seek and negotiate commercial contracts.
“All these corporate structures were used by the defendant in order to make physically opaque the benefits derived from their image rights, “stresses the prosecution.
Mourinho signed on March 31, 2010 an employment contract with Real Madrid and moved his residence to the capital, which is why he acquired the condition of fiscal resident in Spain.
However, “with the intention of obtaining an illicit benefit”, he submitted his declarations for the years 2011 and 2012 on time without declaring his income from the transfer of his image rights.
On July 23, 2014, the Treasury informed Mourinho that it was going to investigate his Personal Income Tax returns for the 2010-2012 and Non-Resident 2013 and contributed the certificates issued by Global Directors Limited from which it emerged that Operating Nominees Limited held 100% of Kooper.
It was then when in its liquidation Treasury observed that the income received and not declared for the image rights was 3,249 .521 euros in 2011 and 2,805,903 euros in 2012.
The Portuguese coach told the judge on 3 November that he left Spain in 2013 with the information and with the conviction that his tax situation “was perfectly legal. “
” A couple of years later I have been informed that an investigation has been opened and I have been told that in order to regularize my situation I had to pay an 'x' amount, “he told the media. ]
