BREAKING NEWS!! Manchester United's Alexis Sanchez sentenced to 16 months in prison

Alexis Sanchez

Alexis Sanchez has accepted a 16-month prison sentence for committing tax fraud during his time at Barcelona.

The Manchester United forward was accused of defrauding the treasury of €1 million between 2012 and 2013 and has reached an agreement with the prosecutor to pay the money he owes with interest.

Despite the verdict, the Chilean will not spend time in prison as he is a first offender and the sentence is less than two years.

Ex-Arsenal star Alexis is the latest football figure to be punished by Spanish prosecutors for dodging taxes.

Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Jose Mourinho and Ricardo Carvalho have all been pursued by the authorities recently.

Barcelona star Messi managed to exchange his 21-month jail term for a €250,000 fine, while Mourinho paid to settle his and Carvalho was given a fine and a seven-month sentence. Ronaldo, accused of owing €14.7m, has protested his innocence in an ongoing case.

Alexis joined Barcelona from Udinese in 2011 and spent three years with the Catalan side, winning a Liga title as well as the Club World Cup under the guidance of Pep Guardiola.

He left to join Arsenal in 2014 and starred for Arsene Wenger's team until making the shock move to Old Trafford in January in a swap deal for Henrikh Mkhitaryan, despite previously agreeing to reunite with Guardiola at Manchester City.

The 29-year-old has made three appearances for Mourinho's side so far, scoring his first goal for his new club in Saturday's 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town.

The Red Devils are currently 13 points behind leaders Man City after 26 matches and return to action on Sunday when they visit Newcastle United.
