Manchester United's new boy, Alexis Sanchez, has been sentenced to 16 months in prison after he admitted defrauding the tax authorities in Spain.

The court heard that Sanchez set up a company called Numidia Trading in Malta to avoid paying the tax between 2012 and 2013, having moved his earnings from a Chile-based company called Inversiones Alsan.

Sanchez is not the first player to be involved in tax fraud allegations while playing for Barcelona.
