Real Madrid star Marcelo Vieira has admitted to tax fraud and accepted a four-month suspended jail sentence, Spanish media say.
The 30-year-old Brazilian player reportedly defrauded the Spanish authorities of €490,000 (£436,000; $576,000) by using foreign firms to handle his earnings.
He will also be required to pay a €750,000 fine.
He is one of several footballers to be pursued by the Spanish tax authorities.
Marcelo admitted to fraud and received a reduced prison term and fine as part of a deal with prosecutors, El Mundo and EFE report.
Under Spanish law, a two-year sentence for a first offence can be served on probation, so he is unlikely to spend time in jail.
