Luka Modric Admits … and Accepts the Prison Sentence

real madrid player Luka Modrić

Luka Modric, a Real Madrid player, has pleaded guilty to two counts of tax evasion with a financial value of 870,728 euros and an 8-month sentence.

The newspaper “Elmondo” said That the Croatian captain admitted that he had committed a tax crime and that he had received the rights of his image for a company in Luxembourg.

The Spanish tax authority had accused Modric of tax evasion and said that the tax evasion was 290,000, 990 euros and 579,738 euros, for personal proceeds of 2013 and 2014, which the player had obtained through a Luxembourg-based company, operated by his wife.

Elmondo explained that during the investigation with Modric, the Ministry of Finance discovered that the player has undisclosed funds on the island of “Man”, which may increase the value of tax evasion, but recently ruled a judicial committee that there are no elements that require an increase in the value of the penalty imposed on the player.

Modric will have to pay two million and 600 thousand euros to finish his entire debt.
