TRIBAL TRENDS - TOP 5: Alexis handed jail sentence; Ronaldo tells PSG what'll take; Enrique wants Suarez at Chelsea;

Here we are again. Letting you know what were the most popular articles on Tribal over the past seven days.

All the big clubs and storylines are mentioned. So let's go.

Our top story this week comes from Spain, where Alexis Sanchez was found guilty of tax evasion.

The London Evening Standard reported that the United star was handed a suspended 16 month jail sentence for defrauding the Spanish Treasury while playing with Barcelona.

The Spanish tax authorities sure have been busy in recent times.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Jose Mourinho, Ricardo Carvalho and Lionel Messi, who was a handed a suspended sentence last year, have all been investigated for tax irregularities regarding their image rights.

Prominent Spanish expert Guillem Balague broke a huge story this week regarding CR7.

The Real Madrid superstar has reportedly told PSG that he'll join them - if they pay him €50m-a-year.

And they probably could afford it if you look at their track record.

News that Luis Enrique would replace Antonio Conte at Chelsea spread like wildfire over the past week.

It now seems likely Conte will remain until at least the end of the season. But that hasn't stopped Spanish journalist Eduardo Inda revealing who Enrique's first signing will be. And boy, it's a doozy.

Speaking on El Chiringuito, Inda said: "We know his (Enrique) goal is to recruit Luis Suarez"…

Harry Kane is something else isn't he?

The Tottenham striker is now surely considered amongst the best strikers in world football.

So its unsurprising then that Marca have reported Kane is mulling a move to Manchester United.

He is certainly loyal to Spurs right now, but how long will that last if they fail to bring home any silverware?

And finally, Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin lifted the lid on what it was like to play alongsideAlexis Sanchez in his final days in north London.

In what may come as a surprise to some, Bellerin said the Chilean, now with Manchester United, always gave "100 per cent" while he was playing.
