Lionel Messi saw this week how the entire world noticed about how much money he gains at FC Barcelona. The Spanish newspaper El Mundo published that the Argentinian billed more than $555 million in four years and the polemic exploded. The publication accused Messi for being responsible for the financial crisis of the Catalan side, despite the fans think very differently.
Messi has been playing for more than 20 years at Barça and is still one of the best soccer players of the world, or the best one, at his 33 yeas old. The trophies gained through all these seasons are the prof of how that money the club pays him was rewarded by the historical no. 10 on the field.
Nevertheless, Real Madrid didn’t receive very well the notice of Messi’s contract. At the Spanish club they think that such a payment could be violating the FIFA Fair Play regulations, and have put specialists to study the case. President Florentino Pérez thinks that not even the contracts of Cristiano Ronaldo or Neymar are so high, and that could be a problem.
The president was even mad after noticing that themselves have some issues when having CR7 in their squad, for not wanting to violate FIFA regulations. Discovering what Barcelona pays to Messi per campaign has made him think that there could be a strange maneuver to evade penalties.
