5 Barcelona Players Who Have Been Guilty Of Evading Tax
  1. Javier Mascherano

Highly underrated yet one of Barcelona’s and Argentina’s savior often remaining under the shadows of his compatriot Lionel Messi, Javier Mascherano has helped Barcelona win numerous accolades since joining them in 2010. He has been few of those players who refuse to be in the limelight and likes to be content with whatever he has achieved yet he would like to erase one memory from his lifetime forever.

He was guilty of evading taxes, which were estimated to be around 1.5 million euros. A penalty of 800,000 euros was slapped against him with one-year imprisonment. However, the Argentine’s lawyers negotiated for a higher penalty amount and no imprisonment.

Mascherano pleaded not guilty in front of his fans and people said that he had no idea regarding the taxation process and rather he has been framed by people who used to look after this official matters. It is hard to believe he had no idea, but for the Mascherano we know, he might be the innocent one.
