Al-Hilal, a Saudi Pro League football club, has reportedly offered Lionel Messi a massive contract worth £350m per year. The offer would nearly double the £177m per year that Al-Nassr is paying Cristiano Ronaldo, making it one of the highest deals ever offered to a football player.
Messi’s current contract with Paris Saint-Germain is set to expire in June, and he has yet to accept their offer of a new deal. While PSG is keen on keeping him, the Argentine reportedly wants ‘sporting guarantees’ before committing to a new contract. Meanwhile, Barcelona is actively negotiating with Messi’s father to bring him back to Camp Nou.
Despite interest from clubs overseas, Messi reportedly wants to stay in Europe. Barcelona remains a top contender for his signature, but Financial Fair Play rules could potentially block his return.
Messi has faced harsh criticism in recent weeks, and was booed during PSG’s loss to Lyon. He is set to play for PSG in their upcoming match against Nice, but his future in football remains uncertain.
