On Monday, July 31, the famous Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo was in court.
The Real Madrid attacker testified in a tax avoidance case, according to Spanish media. A number of journalists were waiting for the football player at the court building, who wanted details, but Ronaldo ignored their questions and promised to comment on the situation in writing later.
Earlier it was reported that Ronaldo wants to leave the team "Real Madrid" because of charges of tax evasion by the prosecutor's office of Spain. Last year, Ronaldo’s colleague, Barcelona’s forward Lionel Messi, was also convicted in Spain for not paying taxes of more than four million euros. Initially, Messi received a suspended sentence of 21 months, but then the punishment was replaced with a fine of 252 thousand euros.
