French newspaper L’Equipe have revealed that Lionel Messi will make 30 million euros in each of the next two seasons at PSG.
This figure is subject to rise by a further 10 million if he stays for a third year.
Messi moved to Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer after failing to agree on new deal with Barcelona.
Lionel Messi’s salary is almost the exact same numbers that Neymar earns at the club.
Neymar recently extended his contract until 2025.
The Brazilian’s new deal won’t have an increasing pay scale, and will in fact decrease as the years pass.
These figures don’t include individual and team bonuses that can be earned throughout the campaign.
The most unusual aspect of the deal is the fact that Messi will be paid one million euros a year.
This will be paid through the club’s cryptocurrency PSG Fan Token.
The club signed a deal with Crypto.com and will bring in a profit of between 25 and 30 million euros a season.
