PSG star Angel di Maria has been handed a one-year prison sentence in Spain.

The Sun reports former Manchester United and Real Madrid winger Di Maria has admitted to tax fraud.

Di Maria, 29, made a deal with authorities to avoid a trial at the Spanish Supreme Court.

He admitted to two separate counts of fraud – each of which will carry a six-month sentence – and will pay 60 per cent fine on top of his arrears, coming to £1.76m.

The Argentinian is unlikely to spend any time behind bars as sentences of under two-years are usually suspended, providing the convicted has no criminal record.

Di Maria’s charges relate to the player’s image rights with Los Blancos in 2012 and 2013.
