Real Madrid left-back Marcelo accused of tax fraud in Spain

MADRID -- Spanish prosecutors have accused Real Madrid left-back Marcelo of defrauding local tax authorities of nearly half a million euros.

Prosecutors say the Brazil international defrauded authorities of €490,917.70 ($579,348) in 2013. They say the irregularities are related to Marcelo's use of companies abroad to handle earnings from image rights.

Marcelo, who has been in playing for Real Madrid since moving from Brazilian club Fluminense in 2007, is the latest player to be targeted by tax authorities in Spain.

Last year, Lionel Messi and his father were found guilty on three counts of defrauding tax authorities of €4.1m ($4.6m) from income made from image rights.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Ricardo Carvalho, Angel Di Maria, Javier Mascherano, Radamel Falcao and Fabio Coentrao are among other players investigated by Spanish authorities.
