Gabriel Heinze is another footballer named in the Panama Papers

Former Manchester United player Gabriel Heinze is another player that has been named in the Panama Papers.

He joined other football players such as Michel Platini and Lionel Messi, who have also been named in the papers.

It is believed that the Argentine player has created a company known as the Galena Mills Corp in the Virgin Islands in order to receive his payment from Puma. Using this offshore company allowed Gabriel Heinze to minimize the amount of tax paid and was cited in the Panama Papers.

GABRIEL HEINZE WAS AN "AVERAGE PLAYER" FOR MANCHESTER UNITED

The Argentine centre back has been getting bad press due to his related involvements in the Panama offshore accounts' scandal.

Gabriel Heinze was named by analysts as one of the average players Sir Alex Ferguson made into excellent squad player when the current 38-year old defender played at Old Trafford.

It started when former coach, Harry Redknapp compared Jesse Lingard of the current Red Devils squad to legend Ryan Giggs. The coach hinted that the player is far from outstanding.
