Real Madrid’s Luka Modric has been accused of defrauding the Spanish government of 870,728 euros after the Office of the Public Prosecutor of Madrid filed a complaint against him for two crimes against the Treasury relating to Personal Income Tax (IRPF) for the years 2013 and 2014.
According to the Prosecutor’s Office, the fraud could be even greater, given that the National Fraud Investigation Office (ONIF) has detected the possible existence of player finances on the Isle of Man.
The lawsuit is also directed against Modric’s wife and against the Ivano SARL entity, located in Luxembourg.
This comes a day after his teammate, Marcelo Vieira, admitted to a tax offence before a judge and committed to the payment of almost 500,000 euros.
Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Angel Di Maria have all been charged of tax offences.
