1.- Lionel Messi – €49.8 million
The only reason Lionel Messi didn’t win the €50 million he had on his contract, is because he didn’t win the UEFA Champions League last season.
The Argentine is still he highest-paid player on the planet with an outrageous €4,15 million that he receives every month after tax. We suspect he could earn a lot more if he decided to play for clubs such as PSG or Manchester City.
FC Barcelona spends nearly €100 million before tax on their most valuable player every season. Let that sink in…
Which of these players deserves his monthly salary the most? Please share your opinion in the comment section down below.
