Guillem Balague reports that Lionel Messi has not received a Saudi Arabian offer for his services.
According to Spanish football analyst Guillem Balague, Paris St. Germain star Lionel Messi has not been contacted by Al Hilal and would not be interested in moving to Saudi Arabia.
Recent rumors claim the 35-year-old international from Argentina has received a £245 million deal to go to the Middle East.
Messi’s contract with PSG is set to expire in the summer, but, according to Balague, an agreement to extend it has almost been signed.
Balague claims that “Al Hilal hasn’t made an offer.”
“PSG and Messi are planning a meeting in the coming weeks to finalize the agreement that will retain him in Paris,” according to the report.
Last month in Qatar, Messi contributed to Argentina’s first World Cup victory since 1986.
After the competition, he declared his intention to continue representing his nation; in contrast, Balague asserts that he also intends to continue winning in Europe.
He currently wants to remain in Europe, said Balague.
“He is the favorite to win the Ballon d’Or, he is still playing in the Champions League, and after winning the World Cup, he has great goals.
It is absurd to approach him with that offer because it has never been.
Messi joined PSG in 2021 from Barcelona and has since made 54 appearances, scoring 24 goals.
