Messi accused of cheating Spanish taxman

MESSI-ATLETIMADRID, Spain, June 12 – Spanish financial crime prosecutors have filed a complaint accusing Barcelona superstar Leo Messi of tax fraud worth four million euros ($5 million), a judicial source said Wednesday.

The complaint, which also includes the player’s father Horacio Messi according to the Spanish press, “has been presented to the court,” the source said on condition of anonymity.

But it was not yet clear if the court would accept the complaint and allow the accusation to proceed, the source stressed.

Barcelona FC were not immediately available to comment.

Meanwhile, Granada said on Wednesday that Chilean international midfielder Manuel Iturra has joined the Andalusian club from Malaga on a free transfer.

“Chilean midfielder Manuel Rolando Iturra Urrutia is a new player of Granada CF,” the club said on its web site.

“He has signed with the club for the next three seasons.”

Iturra, who has 34 international caps, was a major part of Malaga’s unlikely run to the Champions League quarter-finals this season.

The 28-year-old made 39 appearances in all competitions during his sole season with Malaga, scoring just the one goal.
