Lionel Messi's move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain has become one of the bombs on the summer transfer window. The Argentine superstar arrived at the Parc des Princes as a free agent after his contract with the Catalans expired and the Camp Nou failed to sign a new agreement with him, as they would cross the financial fair play in La Liga.
After the deal was finalized, there was a lot of speculation about what reward Messi would receive at PSG. Now the authoritative French publication "L'Equipe" reports that the Argentine maestro will receive 110 million euros in net profit for three seasons if he fulfills the entire contract he signed with the Paris team, which is divided into 2 fixed years by marriage. to increase by another 1 season.
These 110 million will be distributed as follows: in its first season, ie. now, Messi will win 30 million net. In the next 2 campaigns, the striker will receive 40 million euros. As confirmed by L'Equipe, Messi's salary is identical to Neymar's since the signing of his new contract earlier this year and is higher than Mbape's, as the French international has so far rejected all offers. to extend his contract with PSG.
Part of the 30 million net that Messi will receive in PSG will be paid in cryptocurrency, as Parisians have signed contracts with several companies in this field. Due to the use of this type of new payment service, the club will earn between 25 and 30 million euros from its cooperation with these companies.
In addition, Messi, who did not receive a bonus for his transfer, will benefit from a loyalty premium of 15 million euros gross. Messi's salary is identical to what he would have received in Barcelona if he had stayed at the Camp Nou, as he was willing to reduce his salary by 50% due to the financial crisis in which the Catalans find themselves.
