2017 has been kind to Lionel Messi. The FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi recently inked a new contract. If his entire bonus is paid this season, Messi could score more than $130 million by the end of this current campaign, which would easily knock his Real Madrid rival Cristiano Ronaldo off the top of FORBES’ highest-paid soccer players list.

Time will tell if the Argentine forward will bank that career-high haul, but he’s already nabbed first place on another FORBES list. Messi is the highest-paid Latino celebrity, earning $80 million in the year leading to June 1, 2017. He ranked fourteenth overall on the Celebrity 100, FORBES’ ranking of the 100 highest-paid celebrities in the world.
