Diego Costa, striker of Atletico Madrid, has been sentenced to six months in jail. According to the newspaper El Mundo, however, the Spanish player pleaded guilty to tax evasion for 1.1 million euro and will pay a fine, thus avoiding jail.

The Revenue Agency had denounced him for tax fraud during the period in which he had left Atletico Madrid to play in England, with the shirt of Chelsea. In the end, Diego Costa has admitted part of his guilt, reaching an agreement with the Ministry of the Treasury: to pay a fine salatissima (507.208 euro, in addition to the million already paid) and will not end up behind bars.
