Barcelona ready to make Messi world's highest paid player
Barcelona will make Lionel Messi the world’s highest-paid player, with the four-time Ballon d'Or winner poised to earn more than £335,000 per week.
That is the pledge of club president Josep Maria Bartomeu just two days after the Argentina star's hat-trick defeated Real Madrid and put Barca back in the title race.
