Messi currently has sponsorship deals with the likes of Adidas, Pepsi, EA Sports, Audemars Piguet and Dolce & Gabbana. These sponsorship deals reportedly add an estimated $20 million USD per year to Messi's coffers.

In addition, Messi recently signed a restructured deal with FC Barcelona that will pay him an estimated $28 million per year. With incentives, Messi could be making as much as $34 million per year by the last year of the deal (2017/18), depending on how Barcelona does in Champions League and La Liga action.
