The most talented soccer player in the world is Lionel Messi. He has received six Ballon d’Or accolades and six FIFA Player of the Year awards. He brought home 34 trophies and scored 672 goals during his time with FC Barcelona. And right now, he’s focusing on a new location and object.

According to reports, the agreement has a two-year term with an additional year’s option payment of $41.29. A $30 million signing bonus and other benefits, including as revenue from jersey sales, are also included. Fans purchased more than $60 million worth of Cristiano Ronaldo shirts in just 24 hours after he committed to Juventus, Messi’s rival. Messi can probably expect something similar, bringing his annual income more to the $75 million to $100 million range.

At first, it will be weird to see Messi in a new uniform. However, he’s still playing at a high level, so we can expect Paris Saint-Germain to compete well, both on the field and in the crypto space.
