It has been reported but not substantiated that the Professional Soccer Team, Hebei Fortune in China has offered Leo Messi 100 million euros per year for five years to sign with them.
Ezequiel Lavezzi a fellow Argentinian and his best friend in the National Team, already plays there and has a contract that surpasses 30 million euros per year.
Is Messi worth that much?
If Lavezzi is worth 30, Messi is worth 100.
He is the best player in the history of the sport in the prime of his career.
Does it make sense?
No one walks away from money. On the other hand will he pick up his family and deal with the isolation of playing in not only a foreign country but a strange culture and language to him.
I don't believe he will accept the offer.
Realistically in 3 to 5 years he will still decide where and for who he wants to play.
When he begins to slow down, he will be able to play anywhere in the field, eventually dropping back to mid-field and walking the ball.
