Argentine and Paris Saint-Germain forward Angel Di Maria has been sentenced to one year in prison after admitting tax fraud during his stint with La Liga giants, Real Madrid.

El Confidencial reports that the footballer was accused of two offences from his time with the European champions.

The Argentine is said to have defrauded the Spanish government of £1.14 million during his four-year spell at Madrid before his switch to English side Manchester United in 2010 for a Premier League record fee.

He has reportedly admitted to both counts of fraud and will pay a fine of £1.76million, thereby avoiding a trial at the Spanish Supreme Court.

Despite being handed the prison sentence, Di Maria is highly unlikely to spend any time in prison.

Sentences of under two years are suspended in Spain, as long as the convicted has no criminal record.
