Atletico Madrid forward, Diego Costa is to face trial for alleged tax fraud on June 4.
The Spaniard is accused of defrauding the state of more than 1 million euros (£900,000) by not declaring payments of more than 5.15m euros (£4.63m) following his move from Chelsea in 2014. He allegedly failed to declare image rights of more than 1m euros. The court proceeding will take place a week before the resumption of the La Liga season.
If found guilty, he risks a six-month prison sentence and a fine of more than 500,000 euros (£450,000).
