- After scoring 91 goals in all competitions last year to break a 40-year-old world record held by Gerd Muller, Messi won FIFA’s world player of the year award for a record fourth year in a row. Barcelona rewarded the 25-year old who started his career as a youth at the club with a record contract extension through 2018 that will pay him more than $20 million annually. Adidas launched his icon signature line in 2013. It is only the second time they have done so for one of their brand ambassadors (the first was with David Beckham).
