The Real Madrid forward is reported to have reached a deal where he is sentenced to two years in prison, but he will not actually serve any time in custody
Cristiano Ronaldo set to pay sizeable fine but avoid prison over tax evasion case
Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has reached a deal with the Spanish tax authorities to serve two years in prison and pay a €18.8 million (Dh80.1m) fine in a tax evasion case, newspaper El Mundo reported on Friday.
Ronaldo is unlikely to serve any time in jail under the deal because Spanish law states that a sentence of under two years for a first offence can be served on probation.
The 33-year-old Portuguese footballer, who is accused of evading €14.7 million (Dh62.7m) in taxes, has denied all the allegations through his agents.
