Barcelona ace Lionel Messi is in the money thanks to his club's €22 million deal for Liverpool midfielder Javier Mascherano.

Messi has already declared how happy he is to see Mascherano join him at the Nou Camp.

And El Mundo Deportivo says his business interests will also benefit from the deal.

Of Mascherano's €22 million fee to be paid to Liverpool, five per cent will go to the midfielder's junior clubs River Plate and Club Renato Cesarini.

Messi only just bought 50 per cent of Club Renato Cesarini in May this year.
