Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is subject to an accusation of tax fraud in Spain

Manchester United are reportedly ready to offer a bid of GBP 60 million to sign the footballer.

THE Spanish tax authorities have announced that Jose Mourinho is under investigation for tax fraud while he was manager of Real Madrid.

"Real Madrid and Jose Mourinho did not sign any contract on the 31st of March 2010 for him to take over the role of coach, as is wrongly asserted by the aforementioned newspaper". The forward has been on fire in 2017, playing a leading role as Real Madrid sealed a LaLiga and Champions League double and bagging 32 goals in 32 matches for club and country: 26 in 27 for Real, and six in five for Portugal.

Mourinho's agents at Portugal-based Gestifute said in a statement that the coach had not received any notification relating to the allegations from tax authorities or prosecutors.

In addition, they say he only declared 11.5 million euros of Spanish-related income from 2011 to 2014, while what he really earned during that time was close to 43 million euros.

The former Manchester United man has been accused of evading tax of 14.7 million euros, although he strongly denies such claims, sparking speculation about his future in Spain.

And finally, they accuse him of "voluntarily" refusing to include 28.4 million euros in income linked to the sale of his image rights for the 2015 to 2020 period to a Spanish company.

Cristiano Ronaldo remained silent on his Real Madrid future after taking no questions during a postmatch news conference following his Man of the Match award in the wake of Portugal's 1-0 Confederations Cup victory against Russian Federation in Moscow.

The football world in Spain has been rocked by charges of tax evasion or corruption pressed against some of its top stars. Although any prison term is likely to be shorter and anything under 21 months would not have to be served because it is his first offence.
