Prosecutors in Barcelona are calling for the arrest of Lionel Messi’s father, Jorge Horacio Messi, in a tax fraud case.
Lionel has been cleared of wrongdoing but prosecutors want an 18-month prison sentence for his father, Jorge.
Messi senior allegedly defrauded Spain’s tax office of £3million in unpaid taxes from 2007-09.
The decision is considered a win for Lionel Messi, who also had been mentioned in the investigation.
In the documents made public on Tuesday, prosecutors also called for a fine of £1.5m for the father of the Argentina playmaker.
