Reports have shown that a Saudi Arabian club, Al Hilal is ready to rival Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nassr by offering Lionel Messi a mouthwatering deal of up to $350 million a year.
Messi’s contract as a Paris Saint Germain player expires in the summer making him a free agent in less than six months.

Forbes Sport says contrary to widespread claims, Messi has not agreed to renew terms at the Parc des Princes according to L’Equipe, which gives hope to parties such as Inter Miami and former club FC Barcelona.
Portugal star Ronaldo had joined Al Hilal’s rival Al Nassr on a two-year contract in a deal worth €200m per year with commercial benefits included.
The development around Al Hilal’s offer to Messi is looking more real as Saudi Arabia is currently preparing a bid to host the 2030 World Cup alongside Greece and Egypt, and having two of the greatest footballers of all time starring in their domestic league will swing heavily in their favor.
