Cristiano Ronaldo has chosen to solve his problems with the Spanish Tax Agency. He has agreed to pay 18.8 million euros and accepts two years in prison. It has also recognized four fiscal crimes. In this way, the treasury has reduced the fraud attributed to it: from 14.7 million to 5'7. The rest, up to 19 million euros, will be paid as fines and interest.
Now, after this agreement, Cristiano Ronaldo draws all his problems with the Treasury both by criminal and administrative channels. It is only necessary that the new director of the Spanish Tax Agency will sign the agreement and leave the Portuguese, just on the day that his selection debuts in the World Cup against Spain, without any charge or problem with respect to their accounts or their crimes committed in fiscal matters.
Jorge Mendes, representative of Cristiano Ronaldo -among many other players-, was accused of committing four fiscal crimes between the 2011 and 2014 exercises for the taxation of the player's image rights . He was responsible for commercial sponsorships.
During the last year, both Ronaldo and his representatives have fought the arguments of the Office of the Prosecutor and the Tax Agency before the number one court in Pozuelo de Alarcón. However, he has finally decided to reach an agreement not to go to jail and in exchange for paying those almost 19 million euros.
