A third option for Messi’s future that wasn’t PSG or FC Barcelona was mentioned by MARCA earlier on Tuesday. Romano tweeted further information after sharing some information on Tuesday. Al Hilal, the most prestigious club in Saudi Arabia, is the third choice. A mouthwatering offer of €400 million each season was presented to Leo Messi!
For the first time, the information that this publication has corroborated becomes actual news, confirming Saudi Arabia’s efforts to attract Messi to the country. Messi might earn the most money ever paid to a football player if Al Hilal, a state-controlled organization, agrees to pay him that much. We must be clear that this offer is without tax.
🚨 Understand Al Hilal sent an official bid to Leo Messi: salary worth more than €400m/year.
◉ Leo’s absolute priority: continue in Europe.
◉ Barcelona, waiting on FFP to send bid and open talks.
◉ PSG bid, not accepted at this stage as Messi wanted sporting guarantees. pic.twitter.com/FVTDGs4eQV
