Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo was scammed out of around £247,000 by a travel agent who he’d entrusted with his credit card details.

She charged the Portugal international super-star for 200 trips that he never actually took and kept the money herself.

The crimes, which have only just been made public, were carried out over a period of three years, during which the agent netted some €288,000 before she was caught.

A report in the newspaper Jornal de Noticia reported that Ronaldo’s representative Jorge Mendes and fellow players Nani and Manuel Fernandes were also scammed.

The 53-year-old agent, who stole a total of €350,000 was sentenced in 2017 to four years of probation, according to the report.

She is currently reimbursing her former boss with monthly payments for an undisclosed sum.
