Club captain Gerard Pique is chief among them as Pique and Messi were two of the longest-serving members at the club, along with midfielder Sergio Busquets. Moreover, Pique is also the proud owner of Kosmos Holding, his own company.

The Spanish center-back has always been praised for his business acumen. He has remained active and keeps investing in several companies and ventures that interest him. However, Kosmos Holding recently acquired the TV rights to Ligue 1 in Spain. The company will hope to showcase Messi’s PSG debut in Spain.
