Messi paid the tax in the amount of 52 million euros previously. However, he is still under investigation and can be even arrested. "Other elite athletes also faced with similar situations. They had the tax problems too, but they solved it in an administrative way. For example, Iker Casillas, Xavi and Rafael Nadal. However, Messi is the only athlete that the case has been filed against him, and even his arrest is possible. He is angry with Spain and wants to leave," the source that is close to the player stated.
Lionel Messi and his father Jorge Messi who has the personal agent are accused of tax evasion to Spain's treasury.
