If Lionel Messi has seen his salary reduced at PSG, the Argentinian is doing very well.
We finally know a little more about the below salary of Lionel Messi to Paris Saint Germain. Landed free in the French capital on August 10 from Barcelona, the six-fold Ballon d’Or has indeed had to revise its emoluments downwards.
If the Argentine genius has become the best paid player of the residents of the Parc des Princes, his income is lower compared to what he experienced in Catalonia (70 million euros per year). Indeed, according to The team, « La Pulga » would now receive 30 million euros net per year, including 1 million euros in PSG Fan Token.
€ 110m over 3 years
And contrary to what has been said, Lionel Messi did not cash a signing bonus. On the other hand, the 34-year-old striker and his clan negotiated a loyalty bonus of 10 million euros net for his 2nd and 3rd optional season. He will therefore receive 40 million euros net during his last two years of contract.
In short, the former number 10 of Barça will pocket no less than 110 million euros over the next three seasons. A very pretty nest egg.
