Messi, 30, penned a new deal with Barcelona back in August and it will see him earn a staggering €100 million (£89m) a year until 2021.
Messi earns around £44.5m net which equates to more than double the amount of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Football Leaks also exposed Neymar’s net annual earnings which are approximately £33m.
Messi earns a fixed £63m gross of which 15 percent comes from image rights and a loyalty bonus of £62m if he does not leave Barcelona before the end of his contract.
There are also a series of bonus clauses which will see Messi top up his already huge earnings.
If Messi plays 60 percent of the games, he’ll pocket a further £1.7m gross. Another £10.7m will be on its way if Barcelona win the Champions League.
It all contributes to the Argentine sensation earning around £1.7m when everything is considered.
