Real Madrid forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has offered to pay €14million to Spanish tax authorities and admit his guilt to four counts of tax evasion, to avoid going to prison.
Ronaldo has been embroiled in a legal battle for several months and has reportedly offered a formal proposal to the Spanish Tax Agency for the first time.
Spanish newspaper, El Mundo, reports that the Portugal captain has offered to pay €14million (£12.2m) to the taxman and admit to four counts of tax evasion to avoid prison and have accusations against his advisers, including super-agent Jorge Mendes, dropped.
Ronaldo is being accused of not paying €14.7m (£12.8m) in tax on his image-rights earnings between 2011 and 2014.
Prosecutors have previously said they will push to have Ronaldo pay back the tax and also pay a fine which could reach €100m (£87.3m).
If they reject Ronaldo’s €14million deal and he is found guilty, he could be given a three-year prison sentence.
Messi an alien that should live in sky not earth – Montella
Sevilla manager, Vincenzo Montella has described Barcelona star, Lionel Messi as an ‘alien’ who is supposed to be living in the sky rather than on the earth.
He stated this ahead of Sevilla clash with Barcelona in the Copa del Rey finals at Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday night.
Montella, who said Messi’s talents are not of this world believes his Sevilla side have a chance against Barcelona in today’s final.
“Barcelona are a great team, as we have seen in La Liga,” Montella, who joined Sevilla in December replacing Eduardo Berizzo told reporters.
“They have almost won it, so they are favourites.
“But we have to think about ourselves and our attitude and quality and skills. We have to think how to face Barcelona that way.
“I also think that Messi is an alien. I hope he will be that high tomorrow instead of on the Earth. We have to try to avoid him receiving the ball.
“We’ve seen that it is possible to win against Barcelona, but for this to happen we have to be focused throughout the whole game and not lose concentration at any moment.
“I’m hoping for a balanced game, one that will be decided by smaller details, keeping us in the running.”
The kick off time for the match is 8:30pm.
