    There will be a lot of inaccuracy in it
    It's in the original post.

    Messi is way, way underpaid. Regardless of how good they are, or how much better they are than the other players, Messi and Neymar are the big draws.

    All in all, this total payroll seems low, considering Barca total revenues.

    There is no way Messi is on around 850k a week.

    The 21-22m as his full wage is far more likely.

    In Spain, it is always reported after taxes in contrast to The UK and Germany.

    He's really on that much.

    Dont agree with that at all. Messi is not getting 850k a week.

    Can quote a dozen Spanish and Catalan sources too. He is earning that much. He is getting paid 22m deducting taxes. 45% income tax rate or so.

    Can you quote a few?

    That last article doesnt say that.

    First two I found.

    One commenting about a salary of around 20m.

    http://www.elpais.com.co/deportes/lu...nel-messi.html

    Other http://www.sport.es/es/noticias/barc...-messi-5751672 - saying his salary costs Barcelona 40m yearly. Which breaking down to 45% income tax brings it around to that figure.

    +

    This is an old article stemming from 2013 where Cristiano renewed with Real Madrid. Note it says 17m net salary per annum. Messi leapfrogged him as the highest paid footballer in the World with his renewal in 2014, if I'm not wrong

    http://www.marca.com/2013/09/15/futb...379231609.html

    this too

    http://futbol.as.com/futbol/2013/09/...93_910586.html


    Barca already pays 60-65% of its income on player salaries per season.

    Sporting Salary in 2014/15 being 352m and its only gone up. A very, very big chunk of this goes to the footballers of the club, not the basketball players or other sports.

    That Messi figure doesn't seem all too unlikely IMO.

    Stand corrected if wrong but those are crazy numbers if for salary only. The whole squad cant have wages after tax. Doesnt add up.
