Samuel Eto’o facing ten-and-a-half years in prison and £12million fine after accusations of tax evasion while at Barcelona

Samuel Eto’o could face ten-and-a-half years in prison and after being accused of tax fraud, according to reports in Spain.


The Cameroonian forward played for Real Madrid, Mallorca and Barcelona in La Liga.

And El Pais report he owes almost £3million in tax from 2006 to 2009, while he was at the Nou Camp.

As well as the long prison term, prosecutors are demanding he be fined around £12m.

Eto’o is accused of getting around tax through a complicated and illegal image rights structure.

He ran two companies — Bulte 2002 in Spain and Tradesport in Hungary — and this allowed him to transfer his image rights between the two and avoid having to pay tax.
