Spanish tax authorities are also targeting Jose Mourinho, the Manchester United manager who was on Tuesday accused of evading 3.3 million euro ($3.7 million) in tax during his stay at Real Madrid.

The news comes just as it has been confirmed that Cristiano Ronaldo will testify in his own tax fraud case, on 31st July.

Manchester United are treating reports that Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo would welcome a return with caution amid concerns that the uncertainty surrounding him could delay a move for Alvaro Morata, sources have told ESPN FC.

"All I can say is that Cristiano Ronaldo has a contract with Madrid".

And Ferdinand, who played with Ronaldo at United for six seasons, hopes his former club can finalise a deal for the four-time Ballon d'Or victor.

Ronaldo is now facing four charges against the Spanish public treasury dated between 2011 and 2014, including a case of tax fraud worth United States dollars 65.5 million.

However, Perez said that he had not spoken to Ronaldo, who is on duty for Portugal at the ongoing Confederations Cup in Russian Federation.

It will be up to a judge to decide whether to take Mourinho to court.

There are a few problems that might arise over this proposed transfer, which has been talked about ever since Ronaldo made the decision to leave the European champions following tax fraud allegations from Spanish authorities.

The Portuguese-born Mourinho is accused of defrauding Spain of €3.3m (£2.9m; $3.6m) in taxes between 2011 and 2012.

But Perez, the newly reelected president at the Bernabeu, said he had not spoken to Ronaldo since the Champions League final in Cardiff, Wales, last month, but insisted the Portuguese forward would not be leaving the club.

Spanish prosecutors said on Tuesday that they had filed the claim against Mourinho on two counts of tax fraud from 2011 and 2012.
