Former Chelsea striker Diego Costa has been charged with tax fraud

A Madrid prosecutor said on Tuesday that Diego Costa was charged with income tax fraud in 2014 worth just over € 1 million (£ 887,534) for image rights cash.


Costa, 30, has been accused of illicitly receiving income of €1.4m (£1.24m), and failing to declare it in 2014 when he was signed by Premier League club Chelsea.

He signed for Chelsea for £32m in 2014, winning two Premier League titles, before returning to Spain in January 2018.

Brazil-born Costa currently plays for La Liga side Atletico Madrid and represents the Spanish national team.
