If realy, it brings an end to a year-long investigation over what the authorities claimed was a ‘voluntary’ and ‘conscious’ bid from the Portuguese to avoid tax payment on his image-rights earnings between 2011 and 2014, suming to 12.8 million pounds.

Ronaldo was accused of ceding his image rights to a company in the British Virgin Islands so as to run away from paying tax on them in Spain.

Tax authorities in Spain have accused great a number of high-profile footballers of the same offences. Jose Mourinho, Luka Modric, Lionel Messi, Alexis Sanchez and Neymar have all appeared before Spanish courts over alleged tax fraud in recent years.
