As far as I care- he can get twice as more. He's the only player in the world every penny...

And Messi is only 22. Imagine by 26-28, when he is at the top of his potential, how much more can he garner. I guess it's worth it if we want to keep the best and prevent others from even dreaming of having him.

And another thing. I just saw via googling that at only 22 y.o, Messi had scored 80 goals from 161 official league, cup and European appearances. That's a ratio of 1 goal every other match. I just don't know if anyone else has ever done that in a top division of any league. He's worth every cent.
