Paris Saint-Germain President Nasser Al-Khelaifi has revealed the amount of growth the French champions have achieved since his signing with legend Lionel Messi.

Messi moved to Saint-Germain after leaving Barcelona in past summer transfers.

Al-Khelaifi told the newspaper Marca that Saint-Germain’s total income after Messi’s first season had reached around 700 million euros.

“We have already made a lot of money thanks to Messi,” Al-Khelaifi said, referring to the huge sales of Argentina jerseys with the team.

And PSG sold more than a million shirts for the first time in its history, 60% of them to the 34-year-old, joining Manchester United as the top-selling team by number of shirts last season.

According to the publication, Messi facilitated 10 new sponsorship deals with Saint-Germain, resulting in a huge increase in annual revenue.

Messi joined the French side on a free transfer after failing to reach an agreement with Barcelona, ​​and has only scored 11 goals in 34 games for the French capital in all competitions.

Lionel Messi’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires at the end of next season with an option to extend for another season.
