Lionel Messi’s move to Saudi Arabia is a ‘Done Deal’, says report
Football superstar Lionel Messi is set to leave Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). Messi will join a Saudi Arabian football club for the upcoming 2023/24 season. According to a source close to the negotiations who spoke to French news agency AFP. While the source did not reveal which club Messi will be joining, the Daily Mail reports that he will sign a £522 million ($658m) contract with Al-Hilal. This move will come after Messi’s contract with PSG expires in June, making him a free agent.
Al-Hilal was previously banned from signing players but will be able to do so again this summer, paving the way for the team to secure Messi’s services. The move is expected to be a major coup for the Saudi Pro League and is being hailed as a “huge” deal by the source who spoke to AFP.
When asked for comment, PSG stated that Messi is under contract until the end of June. He did not address the rumors about his impending departure. Messi is widely regarded as one of the greatest football players of all time. Likewise, his move to Saudi Arabia is likely to generate significant interest and excitement among fans of the sport.
