Lionel Messi's move to Inter Miami, an MLS outfit, has been one of the most important developments in the sporting landscape.

This Fan Arch piece is an extensive dissection of Lionel Messi's Inter Miami CF contract, its total worth, how the contract was built, how it compares to his previous deals and the financial details of the move.

Total Worth of Messi's Deal

Lionel Messi signed a contract with Inter Miami for $150 million over 2.5 years. That number includes a mix of his base salary, signing bonuses, and potential per-game performance incentives.

Contract Structure Breakdown

His deal with Inter Miami runs through the conclusion of the 2025 MLS season, with an option for the 2026 campaign. It consists of a signing bonus, annual salary, and percentage of club ownership after his playing days.

The innovative nature of the contract also allows Messi to share revenue from MLS Season Pass subscriptions through Apple and a revenue partnership with Adidas.

Comparing Messi's Inter Miami contract to any of his previous agreements at Barcelona or PSG makes it clear that the finances in high-profile soccer have changed in only a few years.

The Messi Effect

A player like Messi coming to the U.S. league increased MLS's global exposure. The announcement of his agreement has already seen Inter Miami's Instagram followers soar by 800%. Not only did his arrival raise the club's valuation, but it also added to the league's credibility and excitement.
