Ronaldo has been accused of committing tax fraud

This comes after the Real Madrid forward Ronaldo was accused of avoiding tax by using offshore companies in the British Virgin Islands.

Gestifute released Ronaldo's 'Model 720' tax form online and insisted Spanish tax authorities have previously been supplied the data.

The document claims the 31-year-old Portugal international declared just €23.5m (£19.8m) of income from inside Spain — where he plies his trade with Real Madrid — and made €203.7m (£171m) elsewhere.

Ronaldo's astonishing £191m he earned last year alone translates to £523,000 a day, £3.7m a week and £15.9m a month, the Daily Mail UK reports.

The form did not show what taxes Ronaldo paid. Dutch website NRC, claim Ronaldo moved €63.5m (£53.4m) to a tax haven in the Virgin Islands at the end of 2014.

Recall that Spain's tax workers’ union Gestha have already revealed they want the country’s Inland Revenue bosses to pass any files they have on Cristiano Ronaldo to prosecutors so he could be charged in the case of a tax fraud.

If found guilty, Ronaldo could spend 10 years behind bars for tax evasion.
