Soon to be new Paris Saint-Germain signing Lionel Messi will be earning as much as €769,000-a-week at the French club as reported by trusted outlet L'Equipe.
The Argentine maestro's weekly earnings mean that he will be earning around €40 million per annum in the French capital.
That comes to €769,230-per-week, €109,890-per-day, €4579-per-hour or €76-per-minute.
The Ligue 1 side are reported to offer Messi a two year deal with the option to extend it by another year.
After his transfer, if Messi ends up staying at the Parc des Princes for three years, he could earn around €120m per year, after taxes.
The most incredible aspect about this figure is that it does not include various performance related bonuses and a signing-on fee that Messi will receive from the Qatar owned club.
So, why is Lionel Messi earning so much at PSG?
Here's what Sport Witness reveal:
Messi is now ready to join an incredible attacking line alongside Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.
It will also be intriguing to see how he gels on with his former nemesis in Sergio Ramos. These two were always at odds when it came to Barcelona and Real Madrid's rivalry in Spain.
