Lionel Messi previously broke the record for the biggest contract ever signed by a professional athlete and he could soon crush that previous number with a ridiculous rumored offer.

While soccer icon Lionel Messi is no longer in his prime at 35 years old, his value has never been higher a few months removed from winning his first World Cup championship. Although some had questioned his relevancy in the sport heading into the tournament, his play during the event and the championship game only pushed his brand to new heights around the world.

However, his current team Paris St-German is one of the most notable in the sport and despite his recent success, they are basing recent negotiations with the Argentinian on what he can give to the team going forward instead of his previous achievement. That is why he is expected to be playing elsewhere when his contract with the Ligue 1 powerhouse ends next month.
