Lionel Messi contract leaked: Exact earnings and all clauses revealed in secret documents

Football Leaks, in partnership with French outlet Mediapart, have published the exact details of what Messi earns after getting their hands on his contract.

Messi, 30, penned a new deal with Barcelona back in August and it will see him earn a staggering €100 million (£89m) a year until 2021.

Messi earns around £44.5m net which equates to more than double the amount of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Football Leaks also exposed Neymar’s net annual earnings which are approximately £33m.

Messi earns a fixed £63m gross of which 15 percent comes from image rights and a loyalty bonus of £62m if he does not leave Barcelona before the end of his contract.

There are also a series of bonus clauses which will see Messi top up his already huge earnings.

If Messi plays 60 percent of the games, he’ll pocket a further £1.7m gross. Another £10.7m will be on its way if Barcelona win the Champions League.

It all contributes to the Argentine sensation earning around £1.7m when everything is considered.
