    He's protected. It's amazing that this is coming out in a catalan paper.

    Also explains the Golden Ball Award that's available on eBay.

    Newcastle United have completed the signing of Monaco striker Emmanuel Riviere for a fee in the region of £6million.

    Bayern have signed Felix Götze, Mario's 16-year-old brother, from Dortmund. That's all three brothers gone.

    Is this why they want to leave Spain so much? So they can subsidize Messi?

    Has it been confirmed yet if the LFP will be using that shaving cream spray this season for free kick instances? I read that some of the leagues would be trying to use this method since it seemed very successful during the WC.

    @Lyra is no joke.

    So Messi's 53MM paid to tax authorities does not include a fine which is believed will be in the 3MM euro range. Mind boggling.

    This is funny and everything, but tax fraud on that level is actually really serious. This is money he should have paid, that could have gone to people in a country with a struggling economy that desperately needed it. He is a dickhead.

    I would love to know what would have happened to me if owed that much to the tax man. I would most likely be in jail now. What Messi has done is a criminal offence in any law and If he wasn't a public figure, he too would be serving time and trying desperately hard to not drop soap.

    The justice system is just corrupt on so many levels, in so many different countries. Spain, England etc..

    Not only this, he will probably get an award for financial contribution to the economy or something...

    Not yet.

    The LFP reportedly presented the idea to the Referees Committee prior to the tournament in Brazil, but the committee’s head Vitoriano Sánchez Arminio was in favour of waiting to see whether or not the spray was received well before giving the concrete go ahead.
