Diego Costa has been fined €543,208 for tax fraud but will not serve any of his six-month prison sentence, as is customary under Spanish law. Costa appeared at court in the capital, and entered a guilty plea. The charges related to the image rights arrangements made on Costa's behalf when he moved from Atleti to Chelsea in 2014. He was found to have evaded €1.1million in taxes, which he repaid in full last year.
