Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has accepted a one-year suspended prison sentence to settle a £2.9million tax evasion fraud case in Spain.

According to Spanish newspaper El Mundo, Mourinho was handed a six-month sentence for each of the two financial crimes he was accused of.

Spanish law states that a sentence of under two years for a first time offender can be served on probation.

Prosecutors in 2017 filed a claim against Mourinho on two counts of tax fraud dating back to when he coached Real Madrid.

Mourinho left Real Madrid in 2013 to manage Chelsea for a second spell before joining United in 2016.

The settlement comes amid a growing list of tax fraud cases involving football stars in Spain.

Former Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo accepted a two-year suspended prison sentence earlier this summer after reaching a deal with prosecutors over his tax fraud case.

He also agreed to pay a fine of more than £15m after pleading guilty to evading £13.1m in tax on image rights between 2011 and 2014.
