    Modric's hearings in the Mamic case are absolutely incredible. How can a man with such a messed up memory become one of world's best midfielders.

    I never understood people who earn tens of millions and always try to cheat with taxes. I mean yes footballers try to secure their life after career is over, but superstars like Messi and Ronaldo have earned more then they could ever spend already some time ago. Is it really that important to do shady stuff and earn 100 million per year instead of being honest and earning 50. Why risk everything...

    They think they can do whatever they want and get away with it, and so far that seems to be true.

    It’s difficult for anybody to judge this situation without knowing the relevant tax laws. Tax avoidance is very different to tax evasion.

    That said everybody tries to minimise taxes... This is especially true for the wealthy due to sheer sums of money involved.

    This is why I am not a Messi fan outside of Barca. Very few people have tons of money and are actually genuinely good in all of their behavior. Messi enters the big portion of immoral big earners who try to do anything to cheat off the field, including using charity foundations to skip taxes.

    Sad thing is that he'll probably be remember as both the greatest player ever and the guy who invented a fake charity foundation to earn more money for himself and his family.

    Greed is a powerful feeling, probably the most powerful of them all.

    Honestly, after everything this club has been through with Neymar and his father, Messi and his father, shady deals all over the place, I wouldn't care if every one of these greedy motherfuckers is sold, even if we languish in mediocrity for the rest of my life. Messi and his father can fuck off. Bartomeu and the current board can fuck off too for catering to these slimy bastards. Please, just be decent fucking human beings and a decent club ffs.

    True. At the end of the day, being a great club is more than winning titles. We've made Mes Que Un Club like a PR word which means nothing.

    You won't be able to find enough of these people your looking for to assemble a team, not many exist and definitely not too many whom also happen to be footballers.

    Well, when you call people D10s, the GOAT, God, and treat them as if they are bigger than life, and bigger than the club, and so on and so forth, all the time, after almost every game, you can't be very surprised if they start to act like they have rights other people don't and end up like egotistical assholes.

    Can't believe people here actually think Messi has anything to do with those shady deals and tax cheating cases tbh. The guy doesn't even know how to speak English, doesn't own a collection of super cars, buy an island nor date with several super models despite his money and fame for god sake. Instead he went for an ugly ordinary looking girl who is his childhood sweetheart and has a normal life. All he cares about is playing football and his family. How can you guys doubt such a human being?

    The one at fault here is his agent, his father, a greedy one who s been taking care of those paper stuffs.

    Genuine question...

    Are you guys football fans or the moral high ground club?

    Every single professional I’ve come across tries to minimise taxes. There’s something seriously wrong with you if you don’t.

    I got in trouble with the tax authorities a few years ago too... Guess what? I don’t regret it and even now I consider every idea that could mean the government sees less of my hard earned money. It wouldn’t be different if I was wealthy either...

    We can be hypocritical and shut our eyes on this one, while we were witch-hunting "Moneymar" for milking the club.
    Messi is exceptional footballer no questions asked, but if this turns out to be the truth, as far as I care he can finish his career in PSG or City or any other club financially attached to arabs. The "everyone else is doing it" argument is childish and corrupted just as well.

    What this club has done is that they spit in faces of all socios who don't have a clue what is going on, transactions and greed that can easily turn this club to ruins.

    Again, if true, very, very disappointing.

    Johan Cruyff: "Messi's tax case? Messi knows as much about taxes as I do: 0%. That's why we pay people for that, they should do their job."

    It's true. Reputable source, well documented material. No serious media would publish a complex article like that that without backing it up with facts and evidence.
