Lionel Messi has signed a contract for two seasons plus one as an option, with a salary reportedly totaling 41 million euros net per year. If no signing bonus has been negotiated, bonuses could… double his salary!
The day after the arrival of Lionel Messi, the PSG revealed, in a press release, that $PSG Fan Tokens had been given to the new number 30 of the Red and Blue as part of the signing of his contract for two seasons plus one optional. A good way to highlight the Parisian club’s cryptocurrency, offered by Socios.com (from a French entrepreneur, Alexandre Dreyfus).
These tokens are not a part of the “La Pulga” signing bonus. Quite simply because no signing bonus has been negotiated by his advisers (his father Jorge and lawyers) and the management of the club held by Qatar. If free players obviously have a habit of pocketing a nice sum of money when they arrive at a new club, that does not mean that Messi will not touch the jackpot at PSG.
€ 78 million loyalty bonus
The base salary of the six-time Ballon d’Or at PSG would be 41 million euros net per year, while he was ready to increase from 60 to 30 million salary at FC Barcelona. But the Messi clan also reportedly got a loyalty bonus of 78million, as indicated Brand. And if the 34-year-old validates his optional 3rd year, he will be promised a jackpot of 115 million! The Madrid media does not specify whether it is a bonus or the total amount of his 3rd year of contract.
It must be said that Leo Messi did not necessarily need to receive a signing bonus when arriving at PSG (we were talking about a bonus of € 25 million). As had revealed The world, the legendary number 10 pocketed his ultimate loyalty bonus to FC Barcelona on July 15 in the amount of 39 million. If his bonus to PSG amounts to € 78 million over two years, it is therefore the same amount. Simple.
