translated from Spanish: PSG denies that Messi will charge 110 million euros for a three-year contract

Paris Saint-Germain has denied on Saturday that its player Lionel Messi has signed a contract for 110 million euros, an amount that would enter over the next three seasons, in the words of Leonardo, sporting director of the Parisian entity. The French newspaper L’Equipe revealed on Friday that Messi’s agreement in Paris has a value of 30 million euros per season, a total contract value, including bonuses for objectives, which would reach 110 million euros, according to the French publication. However, Leonardo showed his anger on Saturday explaining that he cannot provide the correct details due to confidentiality clauses, but confirming that the contract only covers two seasons. “We cannot accept this on the front page of a newspaper like L’Equipe,” he said ahead of manager Mauricio Pochettino’s pre-Lyon press conference. This is unacceptable. This is completely false. I wanted to say that. I think it’s disrespectful and we didn’t like it. I don’t understand the moment (…) This really is a far cry from the truth, in terms of duration and numbers. There are confidentiality clauses, but I can say that this is not true. The duration of the contract is two years,” Leonardo said. It’s wrong, it’s not that, and we didn’t like it,” added Leonardo, who regretted the publication of the contract unveiled by the French newspaper a few hours earlier. Messi, meanwhile, is available to face Olympique Lyonnais on Sunday, looking for his first goal as a PSG player after playing 114 minutes in two games against Reims and Bruges.
