The accusation against Mourinho comes a week after the Madrid-based prosecutor's office accused Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo of defrauding Spain's tax office of 14.7 million euros ($16.5 million).

Florentino Perez is Real Madrid's president. "No offer has been received for him".

"We have discretion, yes, but we are calm because the player's performance has always been clean and without hiding", a spokesman for Gestifute, Real Madrid striker's agency, said.


And he has also complained on multiple occasions in the past about Real supporters, who have resorted at times to jeering and booing his performance on the pitch. Ronaldo is threatening to leave Spain after running into problems with tax authorities.

However, Express Sport understands the 32-year-old may not be granted a dream return to Old Trafford.

The 32-year-old is now on worldwide duty with Portugal at the Confederations Cup.

The former United star has a release clause of €1 billion ($1.12 billion) written into his Real Madrid contract, having signed a five-year deal in November 2016.


"I've not spoken with Nasser (Al-Khelaifi, PSG president) or with anybody", Perez said.

"Donnarumma? Everyone in the world says he's a great player, who will replace Buffon in the national team".

The 18-year-old has rejected a new contract with the Rossoneri, and despite suggestions last night that talks could be re-opened, he's expected to leave the club this summer.

Reigning Ballon d'Or and Best FIFA Men's Player award victor Ronaldo has been linked with a return to Manchester United having been "outraged" by what he feels is unfair treatment by Spanish tax authorities, making him determined to leave the country.


Free-spending Paris St Germain have also been linked with a player that Perez insists there have been no bids for, nor he says has there been any offers for Alvaro Morata or James Rodriguez.
