However, Perez said that he had not spoken to Ronaldo, who is on duty for Portugal at the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation, which ends on July 2.

"He always told me he is at ease in Real Madrid". He's coaching Manchester United.

Rio Ferdinand admits he is "dreaming" when considering the possibility of Cristiano Ronaldo returning to Manchester United.

A Spanish state prosecutor accused former Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho of tax fraud worth about $5 million in unpaid taxes on Tuesday.

All the cases involve income from image rights on endorsement side deals made by players, not salaries paid by clubs.

"I'm a Man United fan, and my kids love him, so I hope that he'll be back".

Another Mendes client, Colombian striker Radamel Falcao, is suspected of failing to correctly declare 5.6 million euros of income earned from image rights between 2012 and 2013 while he was at Atletico Madrid. "To this date, neither the Spanish tax authorities, nor the public prosecutor have contacted Jose Mourinho or his advisers who were hired for the inspection process", read a statement from his representatives.

Mourinho left Real Madrid in 2013 to manage English club Chelsea for a second spell before signing with United in 2016.

It said the Spanish government, through the taxman, had issued a certificate saying he had complied "with all his tax obligations".

The news comes just days after his former manager Jose Mourinho and current Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo were both accused of similar tax avoidance.

Ronaldo has been summonsed to appear in court in Madrid on July 31 as part of the investigation.

Their report suggesting this story will predictably end with Ronaldo resolving his tax problems in Spain and staying with the club he has guided to back-to-back Champions League titles over the last two seasons. Mourinho has denied tax fraud of €3.3 million relating to his time at Real Madrid.

"He's under contract, so if they decide to let him go because he wants to leave or because of the situation that he's in in the courts or whatever it is, we'll see".
