Lionel Messi and his father "are close to an agreement" with Spanish tax authorities on a €15M ($19.5M) payment to avoid charges of tax evasion related to Messi's image rights income from '07-09, for which he has been accused of defrauding €4M. The €15M payment "follows a payment Messi made last week" of €10M ($13M) (EL MUNDO, 6/27).
