Spanish judge asked to open tax case into Xabi Alonso

26 February 2016, 19:25

Madrid - A Spanish state prosecutor has asked a judge to open an investigation into alleged tax evasion by Spain midfielder Xabi Alonso.

Prosecutor Jose Javier Polo tells The Associated Press he asked a judge to investigate Alonso after his office found "evidence" pointing to Alonso having defrauded Spain's tax office of 3 million euros ($3.3 million) from 2009-11.

It will now be a judge's decision to open a case or not.

Alonso joined Real Madrid from Liverpool in 2009 and played for the team until moving to Bayern Munich in 2014.

He has denied any wrongdoing.

In January, Javier Mascherano, a Barcelona midfielder and Alonso's former teammate at Liverpool, was convicted of not properly paying taxes.
