PSG Have Offered Matthijs De Ligt A Whopping £340,000-A-Week Deal
Matthijs de Ligt could become one of football's best paid players if, as expected, he accepts an offer from PGS, with the French champions offering huge money for the Ajax captain.
After an incredible season with Ajax, Europe's elite have been after defender Matthijs de Ligt with Barcelona, Manchester United and Liverpool all being linked with the Dutchman.
However it's increasingly being reported that the 19-year-old will instead pick Paris as his destination with PSG closing in on the centre back.
According to the Guardian, the Qatari owned side have offered a huge £340,000 a week, five year, deal for De Ligt.
That means the teenager would be on £85 million over the five years, which boils down to, £18 million-per-year, £1,500,000-per-month, £48,571-per-day, £2023-per-hour and £34-per-minute- nice work if you can get it.
The minimum salary in France is €10.03 per hour, and De Ligt would be earning roughly three times that just in the time it takes me to type this sentence out.
Initially it was felt that Barcelona would be his destination when leaving Amsterdam, following fellow Ajax youngster Frenkie de Jong, but they quickly had competition for his transfer.
Next there were rumours that Manchester United were going to jump ahead of the Camp Nou side despite their lack of Champions League football.
That likely would have taken a very good sales pitch and a big contract but now it looks like the bigger bucks at the Parc des Princes are going to win his signature.
The French champions have reportedly offered £62 million plus add ons to the Eredivisie winners for their prized possession which is seen as enough but they must now wait to see if he wants the move.
According to Forbes this week Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo topped the charts for the highest earning sports stars.
Messi earned himself £99.8 million last year with Ronaldo earning 'just' £85.6 million, or the entirety of De Ligt's whole potential five year deal with PSG.
Neymar came third in the list with boxer Saul Canelo Alvarez and tennis legend Roger Federer rounding off the top five in the last.
If you were De Ligt would you take PSG's money?
