Lionel Messi market value in 2023



There has been a lot of speculation lately that Lionel Messi could return to Barcelona after his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires in the summer. By all accounts, nothing will come of the Argentine’s spectacular return to Camp Nou. As reported by the French “Le Parisien”, Messi’s future is in Paris, that is, the giant from the Parc des Princes has an agreement in principle with the club to wear his jersey in the 2023/24 season as well!


How much is Lionel Messi market value?

According to figures from Transfermarkt, Lionel Messi is worth €50 million euros. The Argentine joined PSG in 2021 on a free transfer.


The deal fell through in the midst of the World Cup in Qatar, and it was not Messi himself who talked to PSG leaders, but his father, who was also his agent Jorge. In the last three months, there have been the main determinants of the extension of cooperation, and as “Le Parisien” claims, the contract will be signed after Messi returns from vacation and after he meets with Nasser Al-Kelaifi and strategic advisor Luis Campos. Then the length of the new contract and a few other details will be finalized, which means that Messi could stay in the city of light even after the summer of 2024.


Paris Saint-Germain is currently the only club with a concrete plan and offer for Messi. In doing so, he fulfills the two most important conditions from the point of view of the Argentine. His family is happy in Paris, and the ambitions of one of the most powerful teams on the planet allow him to play at the highest level and remain competitive for the fifth Champions League trophy, which he will attack in the spring.

Lionel Messi is surely one of the greatest footballers to ever play football and even at 34, the Argentinian doesn’t look like slowing down, in fact, he is playing at the top level all the time and continue to impress the world with his magic. Recently he won the only missing trophy in his career, he won the FIFA World Cup in Qatar with his national team Argentina. However, even though his game doesn’t look like slowing down, there’s a fear in the heart of every football fan, and that is seeing Lionel Messi bid goodbye to football. Unfortunately, many think that Messi’s time to retire is coming soon.



Every year, the player’s market value keeps dropping as he gets older and older, and this year was no different. In the new Transfer Markt update for Ligue 1, Messi’s new market value was around 50 million euros.

That is nothing compared to his highest market value of 180 million euros he achieved in 2018 when he was a player of Barcelona. Since then, his value has only gone down, reaching the low of 50 million euros this season, and it doesn’t seem like it will go up again.

According to “Celebrity Net Worth”, Lionel Messi’s net worth is estimated at $660 million, which makes him the most profitable athlete in the world, and many of his sponsors and brands made fortune after he won the World Cup. In 2019 and 2022, Forbes listed him as number one on the list of the highest-paid athletes in the world with NBA basketball player LeBron James as second, and football player and Messi’s rival Cristiano Ronaldo as third.
