The AFP agency cites “source close to the negotiations” to guarantee that Lionel Messi will leave PSG at the end of the season and move to Saudi Arabia.
Without mentioning the name of Messi’s next club, although all signs point to Al Hilal, the AFP points to an “exceptional, huge contract”, which will have convinced the Argentine international to leave European football.
“Messi is a closed deal. He will play in Saudi Arabia next season”, confirmed, under anonymity, the same source, with “small details” being finalized at this time for the deal to be concluded.
The 35-year-old Argentine striker has been experiencing troubled days at PSG, with whom his contract ends at the end of June. The player was even suspended by the Parisian club, last week, following an unauthorized trip to Saudi Arabia, where he is a tourism ambassador.
In Saudi football, Messi will be able to meet Cristiano Ronaldo, currently at Al Nassr, with whom he has disputed, in recent years, the main prizes of world football.
