Lionel Messi's leaked Barcelona contract the biggest in sports history - report

Spanish newspaper El Mundo claims it has obtained a copy of Lionel Messi's Barcelona contract, saying figures confirm the star player's deal is the biggest in sports history.

According to the report, Messi would receive a maximum of €555,237,619 (US$673,919,105) over four seasons, if a series of conditions were met.

The contract was agreed in November 2017 and expires on June 30 this year, when Messi will leave Camp Nou if there is no agreement with the club over an extension.

Messi tried to leave Barcelona last summer, arguing that a clause in the deal allowed him to walk away for free, before eventually backing down.

The size of Barca's financial commitment to Messi, 33, is one of a number of deals that have left the club's accounts in a perilous position.

Their most recent set of accounts revealed that Barca's total debt is over a billion euros and player wages are responsible for almost three-quarters of the club's budget.

The El Mundo report -- which was released late on Saturday night -- said Messi's 30-page contract saw Barcelona agree to pay the forward €138,000,000 per season, including variables.

It included a signing-on bonus of €115,225,000 for accepting the renewal and a "loyalty" bonus of €77,929,955.

The newspaper claims that with five months still left to run on the deal, Messi has already earned €511,540,545.

The contract has coincided with Barcelona's decline as a force at the highest level in Europe.

Messi led the team to win La Liga in 2018 and 2019, but the Champions League has eluded them, being dramatically eliminated from the competition by Roma, Liverpool and Bayern Munich in successive seasons.

Those disappointments led Messi to attempt to force a departure in August 2020 in a move that shocked world football.

That was followed by the resignation of the president who agreed Messi's 2017 contract, Josep Maria Bartomeu, in October.

Club elections to choose a new president -- for whom resolving Messi's future will be high on the agenda -- were set for Jan. 24 but have been postponed until March due to the coronavirus pandemic. [source]

1. Don’t know why they didn’t let him leave... 100m plus saved with a BILLION in debt...

2. No serious club should ever have this much debt (and no human this much money...) - and rest assured if there were serious authorities, for example this being in Germany, that shithole would have been shut down by now...

You can't do anything. That's how it was, it is and right now it seems it will be.

The same thing everywhere outside of Central, West and orth Europe. :)

I already wondered in the early 2000s for Robaldo, Carlos and Zidane...

And yes I have... There IS some in it - not that much though as I like to think it is evenly distributed...

Because you live under same roof with them therefore you are there to give them what they need. That's called "solidarity". :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

But it entails everyone, not just me! Meaning: if we are to stick to the concept of solidarity, it means those profiting from it should value it and not use the bills they get to wipe their asses!

The funniest story of all - we overrated football in the last 20 years and made footballers rich. No one else but us.

Sponsors don't come where there's no interest in something by people.

16 years ago, 150 000 € per week was a total perversion for a world class player like Ronaldo, Zidane and Ronaldinho, not to mention for an unproven guy such as Wayne Rooney. And 10-12 million € per year was out of this world.

Salaries and financial power of ordinary mortals remained more or less the same, slightly got better or it became worse after 2008 crisis and those are the years when football leagues vanished from national TV stations in 2 years time.
Everything moved to internet providers and cable TVs, pay to view, etc.
