    The Kansas City Royals have given six-time All-Star catcher Salvador Pérez the richest contract in club history, a four-year, $82 million deal that begins in 2022. The contract includes a club option worth an additional $13.5 million and has a $2 million buyout for 2026. Kansas City announced Sunday it had extended Pérez’s time with the team.

Pérez is a five-time Gold Glove winner, and the Royals are counting on his ability to bring out the best in their pitchers to...

It takes a net worth of nearly $ 8 million to enter the club in the Mediterranean principality, where residents generally pay no income taxes, according to research conducted by Knight Frank in more than two dozen locations.
