Messi's Incredible Signing Bonus Revealed

Lionel Messi's 'signing bonus' for staying at Barcelona could be as high as a record-breaking N37.6 billion and the club hope to have a naming-rights sponsor for the Nou Camp as early as next season to help them pay for it.
It is normal for clubs to add a signing-on fee or a renewal bonus in contracts but Messi's – estimated to be between N36b and N40.8b – is believed to be the highest ever.

In a special report in Catalan paper L'Ara this week it was claimed Barcelona's wage bill as a percentage of overall revenue is now at 84 per cent, up to N196.6 billion, although Messi's contract sweetener is not included in that figure because it's a bonus payment spread across the years of his new deal and not paid as part of his wage.
