Di Maria strikes deal with Spanish prosecutor in tax case

Ronaldo was accused of tax evasion by Spanish authorities recently, which is also said to have added to his unhappiness at Real.

However, Real Madrid have stressed that this did not affect his tax returns, as he was in fact appointed on 31st May 2010.

Despite the off-field disruption, Ronaldo picked up the man-of-the-match award in Portugal's opening 2-2 draw with Mexico on Sunday.

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo and former Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho were both accused of tax fraud earlier this month.

A statement from the Attorney General's Office confirmed to Press Association Sport that the Madrid Prosecutor's Office had lodged the papers, relating to 2011 and 2012, with the municipal court.

The 32-year-old did, at least, attend the obligatory press conference for the victor of the award - he skipped it altogether on Sunday in Kazan - but refused to answer any questions, instead reading out a couple of bland lines about the match itself.

Martins definitely has the talent to thrive at Real Madrid and if Ronaldo himself is asking Perez to sign him means he definitely is a special player.
