- Story Text:Cristiano Ronaldo is due to appear in a Madrid court on Monday (July 31) to testify on in a case in which he is accused of hiding income from Spanish tax authorities.
The Spanish prosecutor says the Real Madrid forward knowingly used a business structure to hide his image rights income in Spain between 2011 and 2014. Ronaldo has denied the charges.
"There is no tax evasion scheme... There has never been any hiding nor any intention to hide anything," Gestifute, the agency representing the Portuguese player, said in a statement.
