Lionel Messi Said to Join Al-Hilal

The future of Lionel Messi has been a hot topic in the football world, with conflicting reports about where the PSG superstar will play next season. However, the latest report from L’Equipe has claimed that Messi has reached a verbal agreement to play in Saudi Arabia next season, although nothing has been signed yet.

According to the report, Messi has an agreement in principle to move to Saudi Arabia at the end of the season when his contract with PSG expires. While it is not confirmed which club Messi would sign for, Al Hilal seems to be the possible destination, given that they have offered an outrageous €400 million per year contract to lure him to the Middle East.

This news will come as a blow to Barcelona and the fans who had been hoping to see Messi back at the club. Earlier reports had suggested that La Liga had given the green light to Barça’s economic viability plan so that they can re-sign the Argentina international. It was further reported that Messi would prefer to return to Catalonia on a low salary rather than play in Saudi Arabia.

Other Transfer Reports

However, if the reports from L’Equipe are to be believed, things may be going the other way. There remain question marks over the veracity of the information, considering that the source is based out in Paris and the general atmosphere is leaning against Messi in the French capital of late.
Meanwhile, Gerard Romero is reporting that there are people in Messi’s entourage who want him to move to Saudi Arabia because of the financial benefits. However, others, including Leo himself, want to return to Barcelona.

Fabrizio Romano, who is considered to be a reliable source when it comes to transfer news, has insisted that Messi has not made a decision yet and that he will do so only once the Ligue 1 is over, which will be in early June. Barcelona are continuing to work to find ways to re-sign and register Messi, but it is not an easy task.

Other News on Messi

Before the latest reports on the transfers, Messi recently won the Laureus Sportsman of the Year award for the second time, at the ceremony in Paris on Monday. The 35-year-old footballer, who currently plays for Paris Saint-Germain, was also recognized on behalf of his national team, who won the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

This year, Messi became the first athlete to win both the World Sportsman of the Year and the World Team of the Year awards in the same year. He thanked his family, teammates, and supporters for their help throughout his career and expressed his admiration for previous award winners, including Michael Schumacher, Tiger Woods, and Usain Bolt.

Conclusion

Currently, the possibility of Messi moving to Saudi Arabia has raised several eyebrows, with many questioning the motives behind such a move. While it is true that the financial benefits would be immense, it is also important to consider the legacy that Messi would leave behind if he were to play for a club in the Middle East.

For now, the future of Messi remains uncertain, with contradicting reports and rumors making it hard to predict where he will play next season. All we can do is wait and watch as one of the greatest footballers of all time makes what could be a career-defining decision.
