Prosecutors also wanted Alonso to pay a fine of 4 million euros ($4.4 million), in addition to the amount allegedly defrauded. The irregularities were related to Alonso's income from image rights. The retired Spain midfielder played for Madrid from 2009-14.
The case against Alonso had initially been dismissed but was reopened on request of prosecutors.
