The former Barcelona player accepted a 16-month suspended jail sentence for tax fraud in return for avoiding a trial, reports BBC Sport. Sanchez welcomed the tax fraud sentence during his time in Spain over unpaid taxes which is billed to around 1m euro (£886,000) to avoid trial.
Spain’s legal authorities accused the ex-Arsenal man of not paying taxes on image rights he was earning from image rights in 2012 to 2013. He is not serving this term because in Spain, only judgments older than 24 months are subject to actual jail time, of which Alexis Sanchez has acknowledged.
The 29 years old player becomes one of a number of high-profile players to have fallen foul of the tax laws in Spain, with the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho. Lionel Messi was handed 21-months, cut down to to a €252,000 (£223,000) prison sentence by the Spanish tax authorities.

Marcelo believes Neymar will join Real Madrid
Brazilian full-back Marcelo belives his compatriot, Neymar will join Real Madrid in the future, adding fuels to an already sparkling flame with the rumors of Neymar moving to Santiago Bernabeu
Neymar just completed his shocking world-record €222 million transfer to Paris Saint-Germain last August but Madrid can’t hide their admiration about the ex Barcelona forward and would do anything to acquire his services sooner or later.
Marcelo, expressed his desire to see the PSG talisman to join him and other Brazilion, Casemiro at the Spanish capital. “I think Neymar will play for Real Madrid one day,” Marcelo told Esporte Interativo ahead of Madrid’s palatable clash with PSG in the Champions League last 16 on Wednesday.
“Would Neymar fit at Real Madrid? He would fit, for sure.
“It would be great if he came to Real Madrid.
“In my opinion the great players have to play at this club.”
Real president Florentino Perez has not been quiet on the possibility of dragging Neymar to Madrid. He was unclear on who will take the mantle from Ronaldo and Messi in the future but would put all his bet on Neymar to step into the shoes of the best two footballers now in our era.
“It’s difficult to see who will take the leadership away from Cristiano [Ronaldo] and [Lionel] Messi,” said Perez in December.
“Being at Madrid would make it easier for Neymar to win it [the Ballon d’Or]. Madrid is a club that gives big players what they need.”
For now, time and conditions at PSG will tell where the prolific attacker will end in the future.
