Cristiano Ronaldo in a tax evasion scandal?

Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly agreed to plead guilty to tax fraud and pay almost €19 million in exchange for a prison sentence.

The Portugal and Real Madrid football star is going to admit to four counts of tax fraud that would carry a sentence of two years, Spanish media has revealed.

El Mundo reported that he is set to pay €18.8 million (£16.5 million) in exchange for the jail time, that would most likely be suspended.

In Spain, prison sentences that are not over two years are often suspended for first-time offenders.
