Jose Mourinho looks set to become the latest victim of that pesky Spanish taxman, following in the footsteps of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luka Modric.

Several publications are this afternoon reporting that the Manchester United manager will be prosecuted in Spain for tax fraud committed during his time in charge of Real Madrid.

Twitter was quick to attack the Portuguese tactician with some absolutely brilliant jabs.

According to the BBC, Mourinho is accused of “defrauding Spain of €3.3m (£2.9m) in taxes between 2011 and 2012.” That same report reveals a prosecutor said he did not declare income from the use of his lucrative image rights in order to get an “illicit benefit”.

As is mentioned in the tweets, Cristiano was the subject of similar accusations last week and is now supposedly seeking a move away from the Bernabeu as a result.

Mourinho, now 54, is yet to comment on the allegations. He’s currently on holiday after a long first season at Old Trafford that saw him lift two trophies as well as the Community Shield. He’ll be back in Manchester in the coming days as preparations for the pre-season tour of the United States get underway. Their first competitive game of the season is scheduled for August 8th against Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup.
