Real Madrid great Cristiano Ronaldo has denied, via his representatives, ever hiding any income from the taxman or committing any tax fraud in Spain.
The denial was released on Tuesday evening, hours after a tax fraud lawsuit had been filed against the 32-year-old in Madrid.
Gestifute, the agency representing Ronaldo, said in a statement: “There is no tax evasion scheme.
“There has never been any hiding nor any intention to hide anything.”
The prosecutor’s office in Madrid has filed a suit against Ronaldo for allegedly defrauding Spanish tax authorities of 14.7m euros (£13m) between 2011 and 2014.
