At just over $3.5 billion, FC Barcelona are one of the world's most valuable franchises in all of sports. Barcelona nurtured a strong group of youth talent into a squad of some of the world's best players, and along the way splurged on a few transfers. Barcelona have won eight La Liga titles since the 2005-06 season, adding four UEFA Champions League titles during that span. Guided by Messi, perhaps the best player of this generation, Barcelona have been a fixture atop Spanish football. Like most clubs, Barcelona spend the majority of their wages on their offensive talent. The scoring trio of Messi, Suarez, and Neymar, more commonly known as "MSN," have a combined weekly salary of almost one million dollars. Don't expect other big clubs to lure them away: the entire trio, including Andres Iniesta, are working to extend their contracts at Camp Nou. According to the Global Sport Salaries survey, Barcelona's wages are the fifth-highest in all of sports.
