Messi Signs New Barcelona Contract, Set To Become World’s Highest Paid Footballer

After months of speculation, Lionel
Messi inked a new contract with FC
Barcelona on Saturday morning that
commits him to Camp Nou through the
2020-21 season when he is 34-years
His previous deal was set to expire at
the end of this current season. In July,
the club had announced an agreement
was in the works, but it took four
months for the Argentine superstar to
agree to financial terms.
Had Messi not signed, he would have
been free to listen to offers from other
teams on Jan. 1.
Now it seems no other club can afford
to go knocking on Barca’s door for him
any time soon. With this signing, the
club confirmed his new buyout clause is
set at $835 million (€700 million), more
than double his previous clause ($357
million / €300 million).
According to Spanish paper El Mundo,
Messi will receive a $59.6 million signing
Two Forbes sources say he will earn
$667,000 a week. Last season he made
$50 million in salary and bonus for his
efforts on the pitch.
If his entire bonus is paid this season,
Messi will gain the top spot on our
annual list of The World’s Highest Paid
Soccer Players and round out the top
three of The World’s Highest Paid
Combined with his $30 million in
endorsement income, anchored by his
lifetime deal with German sportswear
giant Adidas and including new deal
with Spanish sunglass maker Hawkers
for a signature line, the five-time Ballon
d’Or winner could bank over $130
million by this current campaign’s end.
Among the highest paid in the world, he
could be sandwiched between Floyd
Mayweather who earned in excess of
$200 million and his August 2017
opponent Conor McGregor who earned
an estimated $105 million.
Big congrats to Messi
