Alexis Sanchez has accepted a 16-month suspended prison sentence and been fined €590,065 (£524,575) for tax fraud relating to his image rights while a Barcelona player.

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. The Manchester United forward also had to pay more than 100,000 euros in interests for the amount defrauded.

In potentially the largest case, Spanish authorities are now investigating World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid for tax fraud amounting to 14.7 million euros.

Chile striker Sanchez admitted defrauding €1million (£890,000) on image rights while with Barcelona.

He was sentenced to two eight-month suspended jail sentences to run consecutively, although prosecutors have called for the sentence to be lifted after two years if he does not re-offend.

Those are charges, he alleges, which are founded upon a reinterpretation of the law and are forced through via underhand means.

Real Madrid forward Ronaldo, meanwhile, was accused of owing €14.7m but has protested his innocence in an ongoing case.

He labelled the deal unjust, claiming some foreigners were being exposed to "media and political pressure".

"The supposed crimes are the use of contracts that have been used for a long time by infinite numbers of players, in agreement and co-ordination with the most prestigious clubs in Spain and using a legitimate method of taxation that was tacitly and expressly accepted by inland revenue in the past". In some cases, there is no choice but to bow to that pressure and, to avoid greater injustice, accept injustice like this.
