Manchester United striker Alexis Sanchez has decided to accept a 16-month suspended jail sentence for tax fraud in Spain.
The Chilean avoided going to trial in Spain over unpaid taxes amounting to around 1m euro calculated from image rights deals from 2012 to 2013.
Sanchez, who joined United from Arsenal last month, is the latest player to face tax charges after Croatian midfielder Luka Modric, PSG striker Angel di Maria, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo
The 29-year old is currently the highest paid player in the Premier League earning £14m a year after tax.
