Lionel Messi's Monstrous PSG Salary Has Been Revealed

Lionel Messi is set to earn a whopping €40 million- a-year after tax at Paris Saint-Germain, reports say.

After leaving Barcelona following La Liga's refusal to accept a new five-year contract he had agreed with the club, Messi now looks poised to embark on a new challenge in Paris.

And though he had accepted a significant pay reduction at Barca, L'Equipe say the six-time Ballon d'Or winner will be earning a massive salary at the Parc Des Princes.

It's said that Messi is being offered an initial two-year contract with the option for a further year.

If the figures are indeed correct, the 34-year-old will be taking home a mindblowing €769,000-a-week and could potentially rake in €120 million overall - and that's not even factoring in performance-related bonuses or a signing-on fee.

It had been reported by RMC that Neymar, Messi's former Barca teammate, had offered to give his close friend the No.10 shirt upon his arrival at the club.

However, Messi is believed to have turned down the gesture from the Brazilian and the latest update is that he could instead take the No.19 in the French capital.

19 has been worn by the Argentine for his country in his early days, while it was also Messi's second official shirt number at Barca before he inherited the No.10 when Ronaldinho departed.

The lucrative capture of Messi would complete a slew of sensational incomings for PSG, who also drafted in Sergio Ramos, Gianluigi Donnarumma and Gini Wijnaldum on free transfers as well as the £54 million addition of Achraf Hakimi.
