Barcelona Star Javier Mascherano Sentenced To A Year In Prison Over £1.2million Tax Fraud

Javier Mascherano has been sentenced to a year in prison and fined €815,000 (£625,000) for two tax offences committed in 2011 and 2012.

However, the Barcelona star is not likely to be spending a year behind bars, after his lawyer David Aineto requested the prison sentence to be substituted for the fine, which he is yet to pay. Mascherano's lawyer is also attempting to have the offences removed from his criminal record by paying an additional fine.
