An icon in his native Japan and a star in America, Shohei Ohtani is worth $700 million. He established himself as one of the greatest players in American baseball history.

Each of these looks leave fans in awe. A home run in his first game with the Los Angeles Dodgers (USA) is the most amazing feat in baseball. At 29, Shohei Ohtani is an American League star. The athlete who signed the biggest contract in sports history is now the best: $700 million over 10 years. A historic deal that surpasses that of the biggest football stars like Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo in Saudi Arabia. For experts, the Japanese player's marketing skills are monumental because his name is a brand in Japan.

Amazing salary

But more than the amount, it was the structure of the salary that surprised experts. The player will get $2 million per year for 10 years, which is too low for the quality. He will pocket $68 million per year for the 10 years after the deal expires. If he no longer resides in California after the deal, he will not have to pay taxes on his income.
