Cristiano Ronaldo agrees to pay €18.8 million fine to settle tax fraud case in Spain

Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo, a fine and suspended prison sentence, has accepted a tax evasion case in Spain on Tuesday and signed a settlement agreement to end the case, which will cost 18.8 million euros ($ 21.4 million).

Ronaldo arrived at a court in Madrid to face charges of tax evasion during his nine years in Real Madrid, where he became the club’s top scorer.

Ronaldo smiled but made no comment as he entered the court with his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez.


The Portuguese striker last year reached an agreement with the Spanish authorities to settle the case, in return for paying the fine and accepting a 23-month suspended sentence.

Prosecutors have demanded that Cristiano be given a suspended sentence of 18.8 million euros, a penalty agreed by the prosecution with the Finance Ministry, in exchange for recognition of the former Real Madrid player and Juventus for four tax evasion crimes between 2011 and 2014.
