Prosecutors in Madrid have accused Everton boss, Carlo Ancelotti, of evading 1m euros in 1m euros in taxes.
The charge relates to taxes due for revenues from image rights during the Italian’s time as Real Madrid coach between 2014 and 2015.
The Madrid Community Prosecutor’s office claims the 61-year-old concealed revenues “intending to avoid his tax duties towards the public treasury with no justification”.
He is yet to respond and Everton said they have no comment to make.
Ancelotti, a former Italy international, who was capped 26 times for Italy and played in the 1990 World Cup, took charge of the Merseyside club in 2019 after a year at Serie A side Napoli.
He has won the Champions League three times as a coach, twice with AC Milan and once with Real Madrid.
