Alexis Sanchez Gets 16-Month Prison Sentence for Tax Fraud

Manchester United’s latest recruit Alexis Sanchez has been handed a 16-month prison sentence for tax fraud during his time at Barcelona.
The Chilean admitted defrauding Spanish tax authorities of over $1.2 million from image rights during his time with the Catalan football giants, reports Mirror.co.uk.
The 29-year-old has been fined $728,883 and will also repay the money to the authorities. He will however avoid a jail sentence if he does not commit a crime in the next two years.
Sanchez had set up a Maltese company called Numidia Trading in a tax avoidance scheme to stop paying on his image rights deals between 2012 and 2013.
