Featured Image: PA

With tax avoidance and La Liga footballers seemingly going hand in hand over the past couple of years, Real Madrid centre half Pepe has taken rather extreme measures to distance his name from any murky practices.

The Portugal international is one of several Jorge Mendes clients who have been linked with financial irregularities regarding their taxes, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho also making headlines in the past week. Pepe's wrongdoings were, according to Football Leaks, linked to the selling of his image rights to a company in Panama for €1.

In typically defiant fashion, Pepe has posted a response on Instagram to dispel any rumours about his financial affairs:

The statements attached to the two posts read as follows:

COMMUNICATION: After the information published in the media, I inform you that I am aware of my tax obligations.

In previous years I proceeded voluntarily and anticipating any request / intervention of the Tax Agency, to regulate my income for image rights due to the change of criteria of the Treasury in Spain. I want to thank my financial advisors Senn Ferrero for their advice. I attach the official document so that this is past history and I do not have to speak again about this topic.

PRESS RELEASE Given all the news published during the last week, I would like to inform you that I have always complied with all my tax obligations.

In previous years, due to a change in the Finance criteria in Spain, I proceeded voluntarily and anticipating any application / intervention by the Tax Authority to regulate my revenues recorded for image rights. I want to thank my new tax lawyers Senn Ferrero for their advice and guidance throughout this process.

Attached is an official document so that news related to this topic and with my name will not be published again.
