The six-time winner of the Ballon d’Or initialed a two-year contract on Tuesday, with an optional additional year within the Ile-de-France club. Having quickly reached an agreement with the Parisian officials, just a few hours after the announcement of his departure from the FC Barcelona, the Pulga received an interesting proposal from the Qatari bosses. According to information from Parisian, the captain of the Argentina team will receive 41 million euros annually in net at Paris.

In addition to a more than comfortable salary that allows him to become the highest paid player in the history of the League 1, the 34-year-old striker has also received a signing bonus in the last few days. He is expected to pocket more than 120 million euros over two seasons at Paris Saint-Germain. If the last optional year of his lease is validated, Lionel Messi will receive an additional 43 million.
