How often do we see a guy who averages 13 ppg get a massive contract in the NBA? A ton. What about when the best player in the world gets a contract? It's always big but it does seem reasonable.
Lionel Messi is the best soccer player in the world and my jaw dropped when I saw his contract.
Messi has a contract for four years worth more than $670 million. Read that again.
CRAZY! Of course he's probably worth every penny but what is interesting is that we were never supposed to know how much he made. There is a clause in his contract to keep the number a secret but somebody leaked this information to the press. Messi might sue Barcelona for the leak.
