Tax Fruad: Angel Di Maria Handed One Year Prison Sentence

Angel Di Maria has been handed a one-year prison sentence after admitting to tax fraud. The Paris Saint-Germain winger defrauded the Spanish government a sum of £1.14million during his four-year spell with Real Madrid between 2010 and 2014.


Di Maria, 29, made a deal with authorities to avoid a trial at the Spanish Supreme Court – which found Lionel Messi guilty of similar crimes last year.

He admitted to two separate counts of fraud – each of which will carry a six-month sentence – and will pay 60 per cent fine on top of his arrears, coming to £1.76m.


But the good news is the Argentinian is unlikely to spend any time behind bars as sentences of under two-years are usually suspended, providing the convicted has no criminal record.

Di Maria’s charges relate to the player’s image rights with Los Blancos in 2012 and 2013.
