El Espanol report the Barcelona striker has been found guilty of breaching three tax offences, which total around £3.5million in the years 2007, 2008 and 2009.

While he also failed to declare around £8.7m in image rights. However, as Spanish law denotes that an sentence under two years can be served as probation, Messi is unlikely to spend any time in jail.
