Di Maria fined €2m for tax fraud but avoids jail after guilty plea

Paris Saint-Germain winger Angel Di Maria will avoid jail time after striking a plea deal in Spain relating to tax fraud charges.
Angel Di Maria has been fined €2million and handed a one-year prison sentence, which he will not be required to serve, after admitting two counts of tax fraud in a plea agreement with Spanish prosecutors. Spain's Public Prosecutor's Office accused the Paris Saint-Germain winger of failing to pay €1.3m in image rights relating to a period between 2012 and 2013, during his four-year spell playing for Real Madrid, EFE confirm. Di Maria has pleaded guilty to the two charges, which each carry a six-month sentence, but the Argentina international will not serve jail time as sentences below two years in length are normally suspended under Spanish law for first-time offenders. The 29-year-old moved to PSG from Manchester United in 2015, having joined the Premier League club from Madrid the previous year.
