Lionel Messi left Barcelona in August to join PSG after the Catalan club was unable to pay his salary, which on his previous deal meant that he made a huge some of money in only one season. The Ligue 1 club moved fast to make a bid for the Argentine, who they had been tracking for months but had decided that he was out of their grasp. Barcelona's failure to comply with Spanish Financial Fair Play, on the other hand, allowed Messi to join PSG.
According to L'Equipe, Messi will be paid up to €110 million for three years, with the last year being optional. Lionel Messi will get €30 million as salary each year, and after his second and third seasons with PSG, he will be entitled a loyalty bonus of €10 million, bringing his total contract value to €40 million in the following seasons. Messi will also get €1 million per year in the club's cryptocurrency. The three-year deal of Lionel Messi with Paris Saint-Germain has been revealed to be worth up to €110 million.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi's constant rival also moved this season, Cristiano Ronaldo leaving Juventus for Manchester United, where he first established his name in the professional game. Ronaldo, like Messi, was on the move for financial reasons, and ended up at a club that jumped at the chance to sign him. Man United will pay Ronaldo £480,000 (€560,000) per week over the course of a two-year contract with a 12-month extension option. With these earnings, he is the highest paid Premier League player in history. Cristiano Ronaldo's total pay is over €30 million, putting him only below PSG's Lionel Messi in terms of earnings. But Cristiano Ronaldo has the most expensive contract after joining his new club, because Messi was a free agent when he joined PSG.
