After reports yesterday emerged that Alexis Sanchez was facing an investigation into alleged tax fraud during his spell at Barcelona, his agent has moved quickly to deny all the allegations.
Fernando Felicevich released a statement via his Twitter account to say that the Arsenal forward had paid all necessary taxes and that the possible charges come from a recent change in Spanish tax regulation related to image rights.
“Each and everyone one of his image rights payments have been declared,” he said. “Alexis has declared and paid the total of all incomes received.”
However it does look as if there may be some extra to be paid based on the changes in legislation, which will be worked out in due course.
He then asks the press and public to respect the ongoing case until such time as it’s finalised.
So, there you go. Chances are this is all stuff that’s worked out by his agent anyway, so he can jolly well fix it.
