Lionel Messi is one of the best footballers in the world and one of the richest sports-person in the world. Signing a new contract with the Catalans, Messi became the best-paid player in La Liga ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale. But how does the Argentine GOAT spend his time and money?
5. Networth – $340 Million
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Lionel Messi’s net worth is approximately $340 million (£242.9 million). His current salary is $44.68 million (£31.91 million).
While his soccer salary is his main source of income, Messi also has diversified income streams. Lucrative sponsorship deals with companies like Adidas, Pepsi, Dolce & Gabbana, and Air Europa have greatly added to his net worth.
4. Wife – Antonella Roccuzzo
If Messi has a reputation of being shy, this was certainly not the case in his pursuit of Antonella, as he regularly visited her home from a young age, just to see her.
Lionel Messi’s wife is his childhood sweetheart Antonella Roccuzzo. The couple married in 2017 and have three sons.
3. Hobbies, House, and Cars
Though the Argentine doesn’t have quite as many rides as Cristiano Ronaldo does, but he sure does have a great selection to choose from every morning. He drives some of the most enviable cars, which include the Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale ($240,000), Ferrari F430 Spyder and Audi R8 Spyder.
If we had a big pile of money and could make our house in the shape of anything we wanted, we’d probably choose to have it in the shape of a house, but not Lionel Messi. He’s decided that he wants the shape of the thing that made him so rich, a football.
Messi’s hobbies include video games, listening to music, sleeping, and spending time with family.
