Cristiano Ronaldo Did Not Try to Evade Taxes, Says Footballer's Agents
Rabat - Spanish superclub Real Madrid is convinced that its key forward Cristiano Ronaldo is innocent following accusations of tax fraud by Spanish authorities.

The company added that Ronaldo had “never had a tax problem,” adding it was “clear that Ronaldo did not try to escape taxes.”
