Di Maria sentenced to prison for tax fraud

Di MAria Tax fraud

Argentina and Paris Saint-Germain star Angel di Maria has been handed a hefty fine and a prison sentence over a charge of tax fraud of €1.3 million ($1.4 million), Spanish authorities announced on Wednesday.
According to a court document seen by AFP, Di Maria will pay around €2 million to the Spanish authorities after pleading guilty to two counts of fraud committed in 2012 and 2013 when he was a
Real Madrid player.
Despite being handed a 16-month sentence, Di Maria will not go to prison as is normal in Spain for first offences for non-violent crimes carrying a sentence of less than two years.
Di Maria, 29, played for Madrid between 2010 and 2014, when he joined Manchester United. He then moved to PSG in 2015.
A host of football stars have run into trouble in Spain over suspected tax fraud related to image rights, with Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo summoned to appear in court on July 31 to answer four counts of tax evasion of €14.7 million.
Current Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been accused by Spanish tax authorities of failing to declare €3.3 million during his time in charge of Madrid.
