Paris, Sep 18 (EFE).- Lionel Messi will reportedly be paid 110 million euros in salary and add-ons should he honor the three-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain, which includes a third optional year.
Messi, who could make his Parc des Princes debut on Sunday against Lyon, will earn 30 million euros per season, L’Équipe reported on Saturday.
This is similar to the salary Messi had agreed on with his former club Barcelona and to the wage of Neymar, who had been PSG’s highest-paid player.
Besides the net salary, Messi is to obtain 10 million euros in loyalty bonuses for each of the last two seasons, should he see the contract through.
This makes Messi PSG’s highest-paid player, surpassing Neymar, while the French star Kylian Mbappe earns some 12 million euros.
Out of contract by the season’s end, the Frenchman turned down an extension offer that would have put him on par with the Brazilian star.
One million of Messi’s salary is paid in cryptocurrency as part of a club sponsorship deal. EFE
