    I wouldn't be surprised if everyone who has played a game for Barcelona and Real Madrid are tax dodging. Monaco is the place to go if you wanna tax dodge and have no shame about it. Using tax loopholes just means they know they are d**ks for doing it

    No offense to any Spaniards or any La Liga fans, but there has to be some underlying issue with their league and or government.
    I don't know the whole story but when you see Messi, Mascherano, Neymar, Ronaldo and Mourinho all being alleged of committing some pretty serious criminal offenses, that would lead me to only one conclusion. That things are being done under the table either intentionally or unintentionally and there is a bigger issue here that isn't being talked about.

    If the reports are true about tax evasion, that's a serious criminal offense, at least in the US, so I would assume Spanish law is similar.
    I know the IRS over here can demand you pay all back taxes owed, confiscate your houses, cars, and other property, and you can also be sentenced to a lengthy prison term.
    Again though, that's only if these reports turn out to be true.

    What Ronaldo did was apparently not illegal. He only did it as long as he could which was 2014 I think.

    Of course it is illegal to evade tax, otherwise everybody would do it. You have so much money and yet you feel the urge to fraud.

    Very morally wrong though if your only defence is its technically legal you are usually in the wrong.

    if you had millions and millions you have financial advisers who are specialists at making sure you pay the minimum tax. It's what all the super wealthy and some wealthy people do. Anybody with that kind of money will be doing similar

    Exactly. What about how much tax they HAVE paid. I imagine it's a ridiculous amount. The authorities should be focusing on big corporations not individuals. Best wishes to Falcao and Ronaldo I hope they pay as little tax as possible. As for Mourinho, he's a total ***

    If someone told me I could legally pay less tax, I'd do it. There's always a loophole.
