Marco Kirdemir, a businessman who has a good relationship with Al Khelaifi, president of PSG, assured, this Thursday, that the Argentine player not only will not return to Barcelona, but also has a millionaire proposal from a Saudi club.
“He won’t go to Barcelona. Messi has an offer of 600 million dollars [543 milhões de euros] of Al Hilal, the King’s team. He traveled to Saudi Arabia to get to know the country, see where he could live with his family. And if the family accepts, he will play in Saudi Arabia. They’re going to spend all the money possible”, said the agent in the program “Goles”, on Rádio Marca, also guaranteeing that, a few months ago, there was a meeting with representatives of the Saudi Arabian Federation, in which the Argentine striker was discussed.
Lionel Messi’s departure from PSG is virtually certain and the Argentine player was even suspended by the Paris club after traveling to Saudi Arabia without authorization. This Wednesday, after the Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano said that the star would not continue in Paris, hundreds of fans gathered in the vicinity of the club’s headquarters and insulted Messi, as well as the management.
