you raise a valid point, but i disagree. true you watch how you leverage a 30 year old's contract, but you also look at what you could gain and lose from having him. trust me if messi really made that amount of money that they published, barcelona made more from having him. this is a club that got 222 million for neymar and blew it even before they could grab a cup of coffee.

even if they sold messi last year, their directors would squander that money on yatches and personal projects. i have a feeling the huge transfer fees are used to masquerade other failed projects that they're spending money on which the public knows little about.....anyway we have our own problems. the forum has been more interesting than our games this season

Wasn't Barca making a billion in revenue pre-covid?

Either way, it isn't a secret that Messi was making TONS. He brings in a lot of money to Barca when it comes to competition awards and branding. Probably not the +500M contract he's on, but one of the reasons he's even paid that much is because that's how much sheikhs were willing to pay for him and more. Messi himself said he received bigger contract offers from other clubs.

The Barca board should have put a wage structure in place to avoid such high salaries. However, if you want to keep your GOAT while Man City were willing to offer him similar amounts or higher, you will have to compensate him accordingly. Barca thought Messi was worth the cost, hence the agreement of that contract. Respect to Jorge for getting da bag.

What I don't understand is that if they were in such a dire financial position, why didn't they just let him go in the summer? it would've saved them 150M and then they would've gotten +100M from the transfer fee. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

@casciavit. ego. with all the f ups bart and his friend rossell have made, he doesnt want to be known as the president who let messi leave the club. its an interim board in place now, so not as damning. falling on his own sword and leaving the interim guys to figure it out was easier. they'd still have blown the money....a player cannot earn more than a club, they're raking in way more than that if that's what he earns.

only reason this really peaks my interest is begs the question on how club moneys is being managed. i dont care if they spent 100 mill every summer, hell even with covid, there's more to this than they're letting on with the whole "we are broke" rhetoric

Holy wow, that is an incredible amount and way more than I have thought he earns. Also, the 100+M a year includes bonuses? But Barca didnt even win the CL or all the leagues lol, so the amount would be even higher if we won some CLs? Razz

Its fully Barto's and the crazy markets fault thats resulted in these types of money, they just work on a different universe than everyday citizens like us Razz

Anyone know what Ronaldo earns at Juve? Since naturally fun to compare the two in everything Very Happy

This is crazy numbers even for Messi, obviously. Even with Barca's revenue this financial structure was constantly at present danger of collapsing any day and it did collapse so no reason to argue otherwise.

A bit over a third of it. These things are public for Juve, he costs about 50m, coming out to about 30m net for him.

Considering Ronaldo's beef with Perez was he wanted to be paid as much as Messi, he must be fuming now to find out just how far behind he really is Laughing

tbf the reported fee includes all bonuses, some (most?) of which he's not getting. He's likely getting a much lower amount, and even further if you take into account the covid pay cut

Apparently he has already triggered enough bonuses to receive 510mil. And even covid pay is deferred, not actually cancelled.

Messi is bringing double the contract value to the club. No wonder Messi wanted out from such contract, Barca is robbing him blind.

Hope Laporta wins the election and gives Messi a contract with double the current pay.

Am I the only one who thinks it's pretty weird that Barça haven't withdrawn their renewal offer yet?

I mean, I think he has every right not to renew if he doesn't want to stay at the club anymore. But Barça's handling of the whole situation is pretty weird to me. Don't they have any pride?

You have a player who has been rejecting your offers repeatedly, and yet you're willing to wait on him until the very last second before he becomes a free-agent, just on the off chance that he might change his mind?

I mean, he could still renew, but if I were them, I would honestly withdraw my offer and wish him good luck for his future endeavors.

Can't believe I'm defending Barça here, but there's no player bigger than the club.

Agreed. Ok fact he should have been sold when he was worth something last year in terms of sale value. Barça would have saved plenty of money.
