Real Madrid forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly accepted to pay €18.8 million and a two-year jail sentence for tax evasion in Spain.
Marca reports that the five-time Ballon D’Or winner confessed to four fiscal offences before the Tax Agency, to end the judicial process instituted against him. According to information from ‘El Mundo,’ the concession, which only needs to be rubber-stamped by the new director of the Tax Agency, Ronaldo will be acquitted of both criminal and administrative charges.
The report, however, said Ronaldo is demanding that the Public Prosecutor’s Office should replace his two year prison sentence by a further fine.
The newspaper noted that the sentence poses a risk to him in the future if he has problems of a criminal nature.
