Lionel Messi's Netflix series: Will he be paid more or less than Cristiano Ronaldo's $10 million deal?
Netflix is reportedly working on an animated series featuring Lionel Messi, one of the greatest footballers of all time. The streaming giant has been increasing its focus on original content, including collaborations with high-profile celebrities, and it seems that Messi is next in line.
According to recent reports, Netflix has offered Messi a significant amount of money to star in his own animated series. The exact amount of money that Messi will receive for the show is not yet known, but it's expected to be a substantial sum. The success of Lionel Messi's performance and victory at the 2022 FIFA World Cup is expected to have a significant impact on his earnings from the animated series.
Messi's arch-rival and fellow football superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, was also given a $10 million deal by Netflix when Georgina Rodriguez, girlfriend of Cristiano Ronaldo, chose to share her life story. Given Ronaldo's success, it's likely that Messi's deal will be in the same ballpark, if not higher.
As of now, there is no release date for Messi's animated series, and it's unclear what exactly it will bring to the table. According to Infobae, Lionel Messi's animated series will cover a range of topics, including his childhood experiences and journey to winning the World Cup in Argentina. This sneak peek into Messi's life is sure to excite FIFA fans.
Messi expressed his excitement for the animated series, stating, "I've loved animated series since I was a kid, and my children are big fans of animated characters. Being a part of an animation project brings me joy as it fulfills one of my dreams.”
However, some publications report that Messi has yet to decide whether he will lend his voice to a character in the series. But, given Messi's global fame and Netflix's track record for producing successful original content, it's sure to generate a lot of interest from fans around the world.
