Lionel Messi PSG Contract Revealed IN FULL

Lionel Messi has already signed for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in a landmark free transfer from Barcelona.

The reigning Ballon d'Or winner signed a huge contract with PSG, which saw him maintain his place as the highest-paid football player.

And here's how Messi's contract looks like in full and how much he will be earning.

The Argentina forward left Barcelona after 21 years on a free transfer.

Messi “did everything” he could to stay at Barcelona, however, he was eventually forced to leave La Liga, and subsequently signed a lucrative deal with PSG.

Here is Lionel Messi's PSG contract in Full

Messi signed a two-year contract at PSG, with the option of a third-year.

He was handed the number 30 shirt in Paris, which is the same number he wore when he made his Barca debut.

The contract itself was worth a staggering £54million a year, before tax.

That means Messi will be taking home about £30m a year, after-tax deductions, which equates to around £620,000 a week.

Of course, the Barcelona legend was also handed a mammoth £25m signing-on fees for his troubles.

Messi's contract is now worth more than former teammate Neymar's deal, while Kylian Mbappe is still in talks for a new contract.
