Cristiano Ronaldo will accept four counts of tax fraud stemming from his time at Real Madrid and has been called to appear at a court in the Spanish capital on January 14th, according to local reports.  

Reports suggest that his legal team have reached an agreement over a fine and two-year prison sentence, to be served under probation, which is the norm for such cases in Spain. 

The 33-year-old has already paid off the treasury fine of an estimated $19 million ā€“ including a bulk payment of $13.4 million in August, according to reports.

He was also handed a two-year suspended prison sentence, which he will not be required to serve under Spanish law. 

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is said to have applied to appear via videolink.  

Ronaldo is currently also dealing with a rape case stemming from an incident in Las Vegas back in 2009. 

What a year for the soccer star.
