The saga of Leo Messi’s new contract is over as the player today put pen to paper for an improved deal. The details of the agreement have not been revealed though it is rumoured that Messi’s yearly salary will increase from €13 million to €20 million making him the best paid player in the world. While it is all very well to secure the player’s future, one can’t help wondering about the size of the increase when the player has struggled to find his form this season. Players should be rewarded when they play well which was always the case with Messi’s previous improved contracts, but this time it seems he is getting the increase due to the amount Neymar is getting paid. I’m afraid this just seems to be more fallout from the Neymar deal last summer.
