Juventus foward Cristiano Ronaldo, is close to being sentence to two years in prison.
According to reports, Ronaldo will appear
in court in Madrid on 14 January 2019 to finalise the agreement reached with the Spanish Treasury after he was accused of defrauding €14.7m in unpaid taxes during his nine years at Real Madrid.
However, because this is the 33-year-old’s first offence, Spanish law dictates that he will not actually be required to spend any time behind bars.
The Portuguese superstar has already paid a hefty fine (the bulk of which – €13.4m – was paid in August this year) but the law states that he must also now appear in court before the prosecutor.
Back in March, the Juventus forward’s lawyer, José Antonio Choclán, tried to get his client’s criminal charges dropped in exchange for an additional €375,000 fine, but this request was rejected.
It is understood that Ronaldo will actually be hoping to hear his sentence from a distance via a video call.
But this however rest on the decision of the judges.
