Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has said that "the best answer is to be quiet" following allegations of tax fraud.

The 32-year-old has been accused of defrauding the Spanish tax office of almost £13m over four counts of tax fraud relating to image rights.

Real Madrid subsequently leapt to the defence of the four-time Ballon d'Or winner, but Ronaldo himself has suggested that he will keep his mouth closed regarding the allegations.


Ronaldo scored 42 goals for Madrid across all competitions last season, helping them to the league and Champions League double.
