NBA players have commented on the amazing contract that Barça offered to Messi.
NBA players are some of the highest paid athletes in the world, but even some of America’s biggest basketball stars were shocked when they found out how much Leo Messi had won in Barcelona.
Messi is officially no longer a Barcelona player after his contract expired on June 30 and, both Kevin Durant, who signed a four-year contract worth $ 164 million for the Brooklyn Nets and Isaiah Thomas who is a free player reacted on social media when they learned of the Argentine’s agreement.
The Barcelona legend’s four-year contract with the Catalans was worth around 555 million euros ($ 674 million), and the NBA responded to a tweet that detailed his salary.
Not to miss
“Oh my god. I have to put my kids on Futbol lol,” Thomas wrote. “Foolish,” Durant commented.
Lionel Messi is officially a free agent after seeing his contract with FC Barcelona expire on the night of Wednesday to Thursday, but club president Joan Laporta says “everything is on track” regarding negotiations to keep the six-time Ballon d’Or winner at Camp Nou.
The Argentine superstar, having let his contract run out at the end of June, has been free to speak to suitors since January, with clubs like Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain closely monitoring his situation.
