Messi could face SIX YEARS in jail if found guilty of £3.4m tax fraud... but Barcelona superstar vows to prove his innocence
Lionel Messi has been accused of tax fraud to the tune of £3.4million. And reports in Spain suggest the Barcelona superstar could face up to six years in jail if he is found guilty.
A lawsuit was lodged against the Barcelona forward and his father by a state prosecutor for the north eastern region of Catalonia.
The complaint has been submitted for trial in Gava, the upscale Barcelona district where the 25-year-old lives.
