Cristiano Ronaldo spared Jail by Spanish Government


Cristiano Ronaldo has paid the Spanish treasury £12.1million and has received a two-year prison sentence after striking a deal with the tax authorities.

Spanish media outlet Cadena Cope are reporting that the Juventus forward has made the transfer to the treasury and will pay £16.8 m to the Spanish authorities in total.

Ronaldo has also reportedly accepted a two-year suspended prison sentence as part of his deal with the Spanish authorities but will not spend any time behind bars as in Spain sentences of two years and under can be served on probation.


Reports suggest the Portuguese star made the first transfer of £12.1m to the Spanish treasury last week.


The remaining £4.7m is yet to be paid and is made up of fines and administrative costs.


The Spanish Treasury had accused Ronaldo of not paying £12.8m in tax on his image-rights earnings between 2011 and 2014.
