Ronaldo's tax fraud case to be heard on July 31

Ronaldo is now facing four charges against the Spanish public treasury dated between 2011 and 2014, including a case of tax fraud worth United States dollars 65.5 million.

Real Madrid player Cristiano Ronaldo has been called to testify on July 31 in Madrid on allegations that he hid income from tax authorities between 2011 and 2014, according to a report in El Confidencial newspaper on Tuesday.

The four-time World Player of The Tear, who said last week his "conscience is clear", is threatening to leave Real Madrid over the affair.

Meanwhile, as fans and the rest of the soccer world are rattled by this rumored monumental transfer, Ronaldo appears to be focused on what he now has at hand - winning the Confederations Cup for his homeland Portugal's national team.

Florentino Perez insists Real Madrid are not contemplating Cristiano Ronaldo's departure this summer.

It was heavily reported that Ronaldo had made an "irreversible decision" to quit Real Madrid after being treated unfairly in Spain.

The 32-year-old is understood to be unhappy with what he perceives as a lack of protection from the club after he was charged with defrauding the Spanish government of £13m in unpaid tax.

In an earlier report Marca said Ronaldo has told his teammates he was leaving and "there is no turning back".

The 70-year-old construction magnate's third term in charge of Europe's most successful club spanning 15 years - 2000-2006 and since 2009 - was rubber stamped at a ceremony at the Santiago Bernabeu on Monday.

In another interview he said: "This is all very unusual".
