The Portuguese player will appear before a judge and receive a suspended two-year sentence as part of a deal struck with Spain's state prosecutor and tax authorities last year.

In 2017, a state prosecutor accused Ronaldo of four counts of tax fraud from 2011-14 worth 14.7 million Euros.

After being questioned for nearly 90 minutes in a Madrid court at the time, the Juventus player told a judge he never tried to avoid taxes.

The accusations didn't involve his salary from Real Madrid, his club from 2009 until joining Italian champion Juventus last year.

Ronaldo's presence in court on Tuesday is not expected to last long.
