In the end, Lionel Messi, who is widely considered to be one of the best football players of all time, was able to fulfill his destiny by capturing the renowned FIFA World Cup trophy and collecting it for himself. If Argentina wins victorious in the final match against France in Qatar, Messi’s profile will rise even more, and he will enjoy a significant windfall as a result of the victory. Given that Messi already earns more money than any other athlete on the planet, this would be an incredible addition to his resume if he were to acquire it.
The staggering amount of Rs 616 crore, which is comparable to $75 million, was brought in by Messi’s football contracts in the previous football season. Through investments and sponsorships, he was able to earn an additional Rs 450 crore, which is equivalent to roughly $55 million, off the field of play. The total amount of his wealth is estimated to be greater than Rs. 4800 crore, which is equivalent to over $600 million. The club income that Messi earns from Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) allows him to bring in around 7.26 lakh rupees each and every hour. You should be able to better visualize the enormous wealth that the Argentina great has earned over the course of his successful career by looking at these photographs that were taken behind the scenes.
