According to information from the Argentine media, TyC Sports, the last renovation that the forward made with the Barcelona assured him that he would be paid bonds of many millions until 2025.
Barcelona recognized 488 million euros of debt in its last financial year and still owes Messi the amount of 78 million euros, as a contract renewal premium.
The first bonus that the Catalan forward received was with an amount of 39 million euros that, after being postponed on different occasions, was granted in July 2020, before the controversy of wanting to leave the club.
However, the second will only be paid at the end of the 2025 season since the Spanish entity will give it to them in eight installments regardless of whether or not the player continues to wear the Barcelona shirt next season.
The postponement was signed by the Management Commission led by Carlos Tusquets, who assumed after the resignation of Josep María Bartomeu, in recent months and who is as interim president of Barcelona in what is voted for the new president.
It is worth mentioning that some players are members of the club and will be able to vote in the elections that will take place on January 24: Joan Laporta, Víctor Font, Emili Rousaud and Toni Freixa are the candidates who achieved the necessary signatures to be on the ballot.
