Be careful not to mix the very broad PRL definition if salary with the tax man's relatively narrow definition of salary. There could of course be other tax questions broader than just income tax

I get that. When pay scandals like this happen in sport, the taxman won't be far behind. The players & club could both potentially have liabilities on it. I really hope the players aren't affected

If the players are complicit in any tax dodging (and I don't claim they are) then they deserve the book thrown at them. They are high net worth individuals who need to be contributing to society by paying their fair share of tax. They can afford to pay tax advisors (and I hope they have) so they should be OK but if they haven't or if they ignored advice then they get what they deserve
