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.
