PSG Mercato: French Media Outlet Reports the Salary & Bonuses Paris SG Will Pay Lionel Messi
Lionel Messi is on the verge of signing a contract with Paris Saint-Germain. The final arrangements of the relocation to the French capital are being worked out, and many will be curious as to how much the 34-year-old will earn.
According to Paris Fans, Messi’s annual salary will eventually be €27 million net, plus €6 million in bonuses, for a total of €33 million.
With a forthcoming job as a Qatari Ambassador, Messi’s bonuses will be fulfilled separately (like Neymar, who has a partnership with the Qatar National Bank). PSG expects new partnerships to emerge to the club as a result of Messi’s acquisition, which will help pay for the free move. Many media sites have reported that Neymar (29-year-old striker) gave his No. 10 to Messi, but he turned it down. In its research, Paris Fans can confirm this story and state that the former FC Barcelona forward may choose to wear the No. 19 jerseys.
The figure is something that the Argentinian does use previously at Barça and in Argentina, which reveals why he chose it. According to the article, everything should be official in the coming days.
