Messi salary
Lionel Messi alone will win more or the equivalent of two-thirds of the clubs in Ligue 1.

They have the same passion for the ball, practice the same profession, and play on nearby fields, but at the end of the day, they do not have the same salary at all. Lionel Messi wins more at PSG than anyone else in the football world, but above all more than many players put together, in his new league.

Almost 55 M € gross per year for Messi at PSG

For example, his salary announced at 41 million euros net per year (excluding taxes), by the newspaper The Parisian, virtually equivalent to the entire wage bill of the AS Saint-Etienne collective. Charged, this amounts to a little less than 55 million euros gross per year, for a fixed part to the Argentinean, regardless of other income (bonuses, image rights, sponsors …).

The equivalent of the entire ASSSE collective in salary

In 2020, according to the report recently published for all Ligue 1 clubs by the DNCG, the payroll in charge of ASSE amounted to 58.05 million euros. She was then the seventh thickest in the championship, on the same 2019-20 fiscal year. A Lionel Messi is therefore worth a whole Saint-Etienne collective, and more than two thirds of the clubs of the elite of French football, but it is good to add that the Argentinian brings in much more on his own, than all the living forces among the Greens , or any other L1 club, except the one that now hosts it.
