Forbes reports that Messi has earned one billion US dollars (840 million euros) during his career, which ranks the six-time Ballon d’Or award winner in sixth place among athletes.

The members of the “Billionaire’s Club” used to be a famous golfer Taigers Woods, boxer Floids Meivezers, as well as Messi ‘s biggest competitor Christian Ronald.

Forbes reports that Messi earned the most among footballers last season – 126 million dollars (106 million euros), as well as 34 million dollars (28.6 million euros) from advertising contracts.

2020/2021 In the 2007 season, Messi will receive $ 92 million (€ 77.4 million) in the Barcelona team.

Ronald took second place among the most profitable footballers, earning $ 117 million (€ 98.5 million) from Turin’s Juventus last season, while Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) star is in third place. Neimars – $ 96 million (€ 80.7 million).

Although last season was profoundly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, the top ten earned a total of $ 570 million (approximately € 480 million) among footballers. This is 11% more than the previous season.

The Billionaire Club is also famous Michael Jordan, but he signed his most lucrative contracts after the end of his basketball career. The former basketball player has an extremely lucrative contract with clothing manufacturer Nike, as well as the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) Charlotte Hornets.

It has already been reported that Messi wanted to leave the Barcelona team before the upcoming season, but in the end failed to get the 700 million euro ransom not taken into account. Therefore, the footballer in Barcelona decided to stay for another season.
