With the signing of Messi, PSG has undoubtedly made one of the most significant signings of the year. The Argentine maestro, on the other hand, demanded a huge salary to join the Parisians. The former Barcelona winger is set to earn a whopping $3.41 million per month, making him the highest-paid player in the pay budget. The French, on the other hand, is already seeing a return on their investment.
In addition, PSG sold an incredible 832,000 Messi shirts in the first 24 hours of his arrival in Paris, according to recent sources. The club made $105 million in revenue and $10.5 million in profit as a result of this. Moreover, this is a staggering sum of money in jersey sales, and it speaks much about the player’s status.
Cristiano Ronaldo joining Italian powerhouse Juventus back in 2018 was the only other player who had a similar impact with a trade.
Additionally, Messi is undoubtedly the star of one of the best transfer windows in recent Parisian history. PSG has added five world-class starters to its roster for only €70 million.
