Alexis Sanchez has been given a suspended 16-month jail sentence in Spain after pleading guilty to tax fraud while playing for Barcelona.

The unpaid taxes derive from image rights deals in 2012 and 2013.

Domin reported Sanchez set up a company in Malta, Numidia Trading, to avoid paying tax on his image rights income.

Sanchez admitted to avoiding almost €1m in tax during his time at Barca.

As he is a first-time offender and his sentence totals less than two years, the punishment will be suspended.

Alexis joined Barcelona from Udinese in 2011 and spent three years with the Catalan side, winning a Liga title as well as the Club World Cup under the guidance of Pep Guardiola.

The Sanchez case is the latest in a long list of high profile prosecutions brought by Spanish authorities against football personalities and their tax payments.

The Chile global last month admitted to defrauding Spanish tax authorities to the tune of £900,000 over image rights payments during his time at Barcelona.

In 2016, Barcelona midfielder Lionel Messi was sentenced to a 21-month jail sentence that was eventually reduced to a fine of €2.1 million.

The 29-year-old was represented in court by the same lawyer who defended Javier Mascherano on similar charges.

Cristiano Ronaldo continues to plead his innocence, having been accused of defrauding the Spanish government of £13million in unpaid tax.
