Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho might be the next high profile football figure to come under investigation for tax fraud in Spain.

The Portuguese tactician has been accused of tax fraud by Spanish prosecutors. Investigators are looking at the gaffer’s time with Spanish La Liga giant, Real Madrid.

He is alleged to have made two offences in 2011 and 2012, totaling to around €3.3m (£2.91m).

Mourinho spent three seasons with Real Madrid before departing in 2013, and subsequently returning to Chelsea.

He won one La Liga title with Los Blancos.

The allegations come after Real superstar Cristiano Ronaldo was accused of tax evasion.

The Portuguese superstar has launched a staunch defence and claimed he is ready to quit the club.

Lionel Messi was last year convicted of defrauding the Spanish state in unpaid taxes on image rights.

He was handed a 21-month sentence, alongside his father Jorge, while Neymar will also stand trial later this year over his move to Barcelona from Santos.

Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu and his predecessor Sando Rosell will also go on trial over allegations of fraud and corruption.
