The information is advanced, this Tuesday, by the ASwhich states that the Monaco footballer was recently fined €150,000.
According to the same source, Ben Yedder, who represented Sevilla between 2016 and 2019, saw a procedure initiated in 2019, when the investigation began, for him to pay a fine of more than 250 thousand euros, but not did. Later on, reveals the same source, the striker ended up paying around 225,000 euros to the Spanish tax authorities, in a first phase, and another 51,000 euros later.
Now, and not satisfied with the fines paid by Ben Yedder, the Public Prosecutor’s Office will be asking for nine months in prison for the player.
It should be noted that the forward, who this season has scored 17 goals and two assists in 27 matches for the Monegasques, will respond to the accusation of tax evasion, in Seville, on the 15th of February.
