Football super-agent Jorge Mendes is due to be questioned by a Spanish for the first time on Tuesday as part of a probe into striker Radamel falco’s alleged tax evasion, just one of his clients to fall foul of the country’s judiciary.

Monaco’s falco is suspected of failing to correctly declare 5.6 million euros of income earned from image rights between 2012 and 2013 while he was at Atletico Madrid.

The Colombian is accused of using a web of shell companies in the British Virgin Islands, Ireland, Colombia and panama to avoid taxes on the image rights income.

Mendes is due to appear before a court at Pozuelo de Alarcon, near Madrid, as part of the investigation, but his company Gestifute has already denied any wrongdoing.
