Alexis Sanchez has been handed a 16-month suspended prison sentence after being sentenced for tax fraud, reports the Mirror sport.

Last month the Manchester United star admitted defrauding Spanish tax authorities of £900,000 from image rights during his time at
Barcelona.

He has now been fined £525,000 and will also re-pay the money to the authorities, but will avoid a jail term if he does not commit a crime in the next two years.

Chile forward Sanchez set up a Maltese company called Numidia Trading in a tax avoidance scheme to stop paying on his image rights deals between 2012 and 2013.

Sanchez left the La Liga giants in 2014 to join Arsenal before moving to Old Trafford last month.
