Ionel Messi’s astonishing stint at Paris Saint-Germain has been confirmed, and with it his long-standing status as one of the highest paid players in world football.
According to various reports, PSG offered the best player in the world a salary of around € 35million per season after tax.
The agreement is for two years, with the possibility of a third year. Messi is ready to accept and an official announcement could come in the next 24 hours.
So how much will Messi earn at PSG?
Looking at the take-home pay of 35 million euros, that works out to just under 3 million euros per month (2.91 million euros to be more precise).
Messi will win € 729,000 per week, or € 104,000 per day or € 8,680 per hour or € 144.68 per minute or € 2.41 per second. These are all rough estimates, of course.
