Cristiano Ronaldo may be frustrated and tired of the current situation in Al Nassr, thinking that Saudi Arabia wasn’t a great idea, but this is not what is applied to Lionel Messi’s situation. The Argentinian World Cup winner had enough of PSG and doesn’t want to re-sign his contract with the French champions. His visit to Saudi Arabia led the team to fine him, leaving him on the sidelines for the next couple of weeks.
Lionel Messi has reportedly been offered a huge payday by Al-Hilal, which has submitted an apparent bid to him, worth 350 million- pounds-per-year. This could easily erase the current salary record (Ronaldo’s 177 million pounds) making him the most well-paid footballer in the world. It remains to be seen what Messi will decide, as he asked for months to accept or reject the Saudi side’s offer, amidst interest from top European clubs.
On the top of this list is Barcelona, a club that will try to lure him, despite the big pay cut needed to seal the deal. Blaugrana could be the only team that Messi would choose under these circumstances, but there are many yet to be decided. A pay cut is a possible scenario even if he decides to stay in Paris. The team wants Messi “to take a 25 per cent pay cut from his existing salary, which is worth 40 million euros per year.
Every discussion over Messi’s future can not leave aside a move to MLS or a return to Argentina. Inter Miami is a highly rumoured destination, but Messi may want to play in the US at the end of his career. All these clues adapt perfectly to his arrival to Argentine Primera Division. He stated before that he wants to return to his boyhood club Newell’s Old Boys, but he and his family know that Europe has many more to offer to them. Another busy summer for this legend.
