The arrangement between the tax authorities and Ronaldo, who recently signed for Italian champions Juventus, was made to settle accusations that the player had hidden income generated from his image likeness while playing for Real Madrid.

Ronaldo was also handed a two-year jail sentence but, as is common in Spanish law, it wasn’t enforced as he was a first-time offender and it was a non-violent crime.
