How much did Messi cost PSG : Transfer Fee?
As far as the transfer fee is concerned, PSG has not had to spend a single penny to get Lionel Messi from Barcelona as Messi was already at the end of his contract and the reason the move materialized was because Barcelona were unable to get a contract signed and agreed due to the financial status of their club.
Messi did desire to stay at Camp Nou but his attempts to stay were rejected last week by the Spanish league because his salary would not comply with financial regulations. The Catalan club is burdened with more than 1.2 billion euros ($1.4bn) in debt, and thus was not in a situation to entertain a new contract.
How much is Messi earning per week, and exactly how much did Messi cost PSG?
According to most of the reliable sources in world football Messi will be earning around $41m including added bonuses. It has been reported that he will be given $35m net per season excluding the add-ons which will be added on as the season goes on. This contract will be valid for the next two seasons including an option to extend by one years.
According to reports by Forbes, Messi will also get a cut of player image rights, including jersey sales, which could potentially increase his annual salary up to anything between $50m to $75m.
Messi when he was still at Barcelona was still the highest paid footballer in the world in 2021, now his contact at PSG will see him earn “considerably higher” than what he was earning at Barcelona. Thus as of now, he stands as the highest paid footballer in the world in 2021.
