Prosecutors said he had failed to declare revenues from his image rights in his Spanish income tax declarations from 2011 and 2012.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was today accused of evading €3.3 million (RM15.8 million) in tax at Real Madrid, the public prosecutor's office in Madrid announced.

Mourinho left Real Madrid 2013 to manage English club Chelsea F.C. for a second spell before signing with United in 2016.

The allegations against the Portuguese amount to a sum of £2.9 million (€3.3m), according to Spanish publication El Pais.

Mourinho has not yet commented on the allegations.

Other football stars have also been accused of tax fraud in Spain recently.

The 32-year-old Real Madrid player has denied evading tax of £13m between 2011 and 2014, and the club subsequently issued a statement claiming it has "full confidence" in Ronaldo. Cristiano Ronaldo will testify in his tax fraud case next month. The prosecutor said Ronaldo used shell company in the Virgin Islands to cheat on his taxes. The two were given 21-month jail sentences but neither is expected to serve prison time since it was a first offense and the sentence was under two years.
