It has been claimed Alexis Sanchez ‘concealed’ some of his earnings during his time with Barcelona.

He’s alledged to have defrauded Spanish tax authorities pushing on for £1m between 2012 and 2013. El Periodico has reported tax wasn’t paid on earnings of ?983,443 (£889,169) relating to image rights.

The allegations have been denied with a statement released by his agent that read.

‘Alexis Sanchez has fully obeyed the laws imposed by the countries where he has resided. He has paid taxes to all the local tax and revenue organisations. Furthermore, all of his personal and image rights income has been declared to all of those national tax and revenue agencies.’

27-year-old Sanchez is said to have concealed these earnings from these image rights at Barcelona by using companies set up in both Chile and Malta prior to his arrival at Arsenal from the Nou Camp in 2014.

I’m not really sure what else to say!
