Real Madrid left-back Marcelo Tuesday admitted defrauding Spanish tax authorities and agreed to pay back nearly half a million euros, judicial source said. Brazilian international Marcelo admitted to tax fraud in court in Alcobendas, on the outskirts of Madrid, after being accused using front companies to hide 490,917 euros ($579,348) earned from image rights in the 2013 financial year. In 2016, Lionel Messi was fined 2.1 million euros and handed a 21-month prison sentence, later commuted to another fine, after he and his father were found guilty on three counts of tax fraud totaling 4.7 million euros.
