FC Barcelona apparently pays their players an astonishing 12 million euro per year. This astonishing figure is the highest of any professional sports team, worldwide. WTFoot analysed data from a sportingintelligence.com report.
Obviously the bulk of these massive salary expenses goes to Lionel Messi, the starplayer from Argentina earns a spectacular 55 million euro’s per year. Football Leaks has analysed Messi’s contract and have stated that with Bonuses, the striker could make up to 100 million euro per year. Wow..
As one analyst stated:
“Messi 55 million per year > 4,5 million per month > 1,1 million per week > 150.000 per day > 18.000 per hour > 300 per minute and 5 euro per second. In other words: if Messi were to produce a rather long fart he will have earned more than the average Joe earns in an hour”
We couldn’t agree more!
