Messi to become 1st £1m -a- week player

The Barcelona striker Lionel Messi will become the first £1m-a-week player in a new deal to be signed this month, according to

Messi's gross pay under the four-year deal has been set at an annual £54.8 million, according to a club source, and will take football salaries to an extraordinary new level.

If the contract runs for its full term, by which stage the Argentina international will be 34, Barca are committed to paying him £220 million - and that is before performance-related bonuses.

Messi's deal will put him ahead of his great rival, Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid, who earns a reported £365,000 a week after tax, although Ronaldo's overall earnings put him in front.
