Sanchez, who left Arsenal for the Old Trafford club a month ago, achieved a concurrence with the Office of the Attorney General and the State Attorney where paid back all the cash in addition to impose and a 16-month sentence, in spite of the fact that he won't serve any correctional facility time.
