Super-agent called in for probe

Football super-agent Jorge Mendes has been summoned before a Spanish court as part of the probe into Colombian striker Radamel Falcao's alleged tax evasion, legal sources said yesterday.

AS Monaco's Falcao is suspected of failing to correctly declare 5.6 million euros (S$8.7m) of income earned from image rights between 2012 and 2013, while he was at Atletico Madrid.

He is suspected of using a web of shell companies to avoid taxes on the image-rights income. - AFP
