Footballer investigated for tax fraud

According to recent reports, Spanish authorities are allegedly investigating claims that Cristiano Ronaldo owes £13 million in unpaid image right taxes between 2011 and 2013. If the footballer can show it was an administrative offence he may only be required to make a full payment of the missing funds plus a fine.
