Lionel Messi to sue Spanish newspaper over tax evasion claims in Panama Papers

Lionel Messi is planning to sue a Spanish newspaper for defamation after the footballer was linked to tax evasion projects in the Panama Papers leak.

The captain of the Argentina national team was accused by El Confidencial of "setting up a tax fraud network" by using Panamanian company Mega Star Enterprises to avoid paying tax on image rights deals.

Mr Messi is due in court along with his father Jorge Messi on 31 May over separate tax evasion charges.
