Spain's tax agency may expand an investigation of FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi that has already led to charges against the 25-year-old Argentine, judicial sources told Efe.

Messi stands accused of defrauding the Spanish state of some 4.1 million euros ($5.5 million) in taxes on income from endorsements that he allegedly failed to report on his 2007, 2008 and 2009 tax returns.
