Dani Pedrosa SOME of Spain’s top sports stars have been named and shamed for not paying their taxes.

MotoGP star Dani Pedrosa is by far the worst offender, owing the tax man a whopping 7.8million.

Meanwhile former Barcelona footballer Gabriel Milito owes more than 1.8 million in back taxes and ex-Real Madrid president Lorenzo Sanz has a debt of 1.3 million.   

Football clubs Racing Santander, Recreativo de Huelva, Jerez, Murcia, Albacete and Alicante are also named for owing the tax man more than 1 million.

Pedrosa now claims Swiss residency in order to get around paying taxes in Spain.

Much of his tax debt dates back to his days as a 250 rider when he was still resident in Spain.

In total La Agencia Tributaria (AEAT)’s report shows 4,855 people and businesses owe €15.6 billion euros.
