Manchester United manager José Mourinho 'reaches deal in Spanish tax dispute'



Manchester United manager José Mourinho is reported to have reached a deal with the Spanish state over a long-running tax dispute.

 
He was accused of owing nearly €3.3m in undeclared image rights revenue for 2011 and 2012, when he was Real Madrid manager - an allegation he disputed.


Spain's El Mundo newspaper reported he had agreed to pay a fine of €2m (£1.8m; $2.3m).


Mr Mourinho said earlier he had paid all the taxes he owed.


El Mundo also reported that he had accepted a one-year suspended jail sentence.
But sources close to the manager said no prison term had been imposed or accepted.
