Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho accused of hiding millions in tax havens using schemes devised by agent

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo could have "hidden 150
million euros in tax havens in Switzerland and the British
Virgin Islands", according to claims in German newspaper Der

Leaked documents obtained by 12 European newspapers
suggest Ronaldo and Manchester United manager Jose
Mourinho could be involved in a multimillion-Euro "tax
evasion and money laundering" scheme.

The 12 papers involved say over the next three weeks they
plan to release details of an investigation into widespread
alleged corruption under the collective name "Football Leaks".

The newspapers claim Ronaldo and Mourinho may have
benefited from a tax system orchestrated by their agent Jorge

But Mendes's company, Gestifute, hit back at the claims,
saying on Friday that Ronaldo and Mourinho had "fully
respected their obligations vis-a-vis the Spanish and British

Gestifute added that neither man had "been implicated in
legal proceedings of the tax evasion commission in Spain".
