Man Utd's Sanchez accepts sentence for tax fraud

Posted February 08, 2018

Alexis Sanchez has accepted a 16-month prison sentence in relation to committing tax fraud worth €1million during his time with Barcelona.

In Spain, just sentences over two years are met with genuine correctional facility time in spite of the fact that Sanchez will be imprisoned on the off chance that he carries out a comparative wrongdoing inside the following two years.

As first reported by Spanish news agency EFE, Sanchez's punishment relates to concealing income from image rights between 2012 and 2013.

The ex-Arsenal star is the latest football figure to be punished by Spanish prosecutors for an apparent dodging of taxes.

The Ozone layer is situated in the Stratosphere , it is the area of the Atmosphere between 10 to 5 Km above the troposphere. Until now, experts have expected that the global ozone layer would completely recover by the middle of the century.

Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Jose Mourinho and Ricardo Carvalho have all been fingered also for issues bordering on tax evasion.

As a result, the 29-year-old has received a suspended sentence of 16 months, meaning he won't spend any time inside a cell.

Alexis has played three games for the Red Devils since his January transfer, and the former Arsenal man managed his first goal against Huddersfield during his Old Trafford debut on Saturday.

The Red Devils are now 13 points behind leaders City after 26 matches and return to action on Sunday when they visit Newcastle United.
