He is expected to attend the hearing in the Pozuelo de Alarcon region of the Spanish capital at 10am.

Mourinho has been accused of defrauding the Spanish tax authorities of £2.9million during his spell in charge of Real Madrid between 2010 and 2013.

The 54-year-old allegedly failed to declare profits from image rights.

However, the United boss insists that he has fully complied with the country's tax laws and denies any wrongdoing.
