Most supporters of Paris Saint Germain have started to wonder why Lionel Messi has not been giving the club the number of goals and assists he used to give FC Barcelona. Since the Argentine football icon join the club in August this year, he has managed to score just one league goal in 10 French Ligue 1 games.
Despite such a poor start at PSG, Lionel Messi is more concerned about growing his luxurious clothing line known as Messi store which sells things only fair earners can afford.
During Lionel Messi’s time at FC Barcelona, the 34-year-old football star was always busy with football and hardly flaunt his fashion sense at every given opportunity. But now, the football star is paying so much attention to that aspect of his life.
Such a change of lifestyle is believed to be intentional to promote the merchandise his clothing line has in stock.
Though the football star is nearing retirement and has achieved everything in football except winning a FIFA World Cup, many people believe he still has a lot to offer. But the football star wants to grow his business as much as possible before he stops receiving outrageous salaries from PSG.
According to reports, Lionel Messi currently earns a whopping €729,000-per-week as salary from PSG. This means that the Argentine football icon earns €104,000 every day or €8,680 per hour. It is rare to see an employee earning so much.
Amid such earnings from PSG, the club’s fans have not been seeing his magic on the pitch especially in the French Ligue 1. He has however provided 5 assists and scored a goal in 775 minutes of league football at the club.
On the other hand, some faction of PSG’s supporters will be very proud of Messi’s performance in the UEFA Champions League so far this season in which he has scored 5 goals in 5 games.
All the same, Lionel Messi’s arrival at PSG has not changed much as Kylian Mbappe has continued to prove that he is the most reliable superstar at the club currently.
Many blame Messi’s struggle at PSG on his age (34-year-old). Due to his age and how he is not playing as superb as he used to, the transfer value of the 7 time Ballon d’Or winner has dropped to just €60 million.
