Marcelo Accepts Suspended Jail Term

30-year old Brazilian superstar, Marcelo has accepted the verdict of the Spanish authorities against him and he is prepared for financial compensation.

Real Madrid defender Marcelo has admitted to tax fraud of €490k and accepted a suspended four-month jail sentence from the Spanish authorities.
The Brazilian will now pay a total fine of €750k after admitting to using foreign firms to handle his earnings and thus defrauding the Spanish state.
Under Spanish law, a two-year sentence for a first offender can be served on probation and that will be the case for the 30-year-old full-back.
El Mundo reported a deal was struck with prosecutors as Marcelo becomes the latest figure to accept a suspended jail sentence following similar punishments for Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Jose Mourinho, Neymar and Xabi Alonso.
