Under pressure Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has reportedly accepted a one-year prison sentence as part of a deal to settle a Spanish tax evasion case.
Jose Mourinho who managed Real Madrid was accused by Spanish tax authorities to be owing 3.3 million euros ($3.8m). According to prosecutors, Mourinho had failed to declare revenues from his image rights in his Spanish income tax declarations from 2011 and 2012, “with the aim of obtaining illicit profits”.
However, the Manchester United manager is unlikely to serve the jail term as Spanish law states that a sentence of under two years for a first offence can be served on probation.
It has also been reported that Mourinho settled a previous claim relating to his Spanish taxes after a 2014 inquiry, which resulted in a penalty of 1.15 million euros ($1.33m) but the Spanish tax authorities later found that some of the information presented in that settlement was incorrect.
