By Agency Report

Lionel Messi’s net worth is estimated to be around £309m ($400m) as of 2020. These figures are speculative, though, especially as his business interests tend not to be widely publicised.

The Barcelona forward’s latest salary package will certainly keep him among the richest active sportsmen on the planet over the next few years.

Messi’s latest contract is reportedly worth a net £500,000 ($610k/€565k) a week.

Before signing this deal, Messi was estimated to be on around £336,000 ($410k/€397k) a week.

Ironically, Messi has Neymar to thank for his new and improved terms. His departure to Paris Saint-Germain not only brought Barca a massive windfall but also took his wages off the books.

Before that – when club president Josep Maria Bartomeu was insisting a deal had been agreed despite the fact that it had not been signed – Barca had admitted that Messi’s new salary would take their wage spending above what is generally recommended by UEFA.
