Lionel Messi Sets to Join Saudi Arabian Club

In a surprising turn of events, Argentine football sensation Lionel Messi is poised to grace the football pitches of Saudi Arabia next season. According to an anonymous source close to the negotiations, Messi’s move to the oil-rich kingdom is confirmed, although the club involved remains undisclosed at this stage.

The insider revealed that the contract offered to Messi is nothing short of exceptional, characterized by its enormous financial terms. While finalizing a few minor details, the parties involved are keeping the identity of the club under wraps. Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), Messi’s current team, responded to the reports by stating that the player remains under contract until the end of June.

It appears that the decision not to renew Messi’s contract with PSG contributed to his eagerness to explore new opportunities. A source within PSG mentioned that if the club intended to extend his stay, such discussions would have taken place earlier. Consequently, the 35-year-old global icon found himself serving a suspension from PSG after embarking on an unauthorized trip to Saudi Arabia, where he holds the role of a tourism ambassador.

Messi’s prospective venture into Saudi Arabia follows in the footsteps of his long-time rival, Cristiano Ronaldo, who made a high-profile move to Saudi Pro League club Al Nassr earlier this year. Ronaldo’s contract, extending until June 2025, reportedly amounts to over 400 million euros, cementing his position as the world’s highest-paid athlete, according to Forbes.

Both Messi and Ronaldo’s eye-watering deals are being financed by the Public Investment Fund (PIF), one of the world’s largest sovereign wealth funds with assets exceeding $620 billion. The source explained that negotiations with Messi were considerably swifter than those with Ronaldo, as the Saudi Arabian authorities have acquired the formula for securing top-tier players.

It is essential to note that Messi’s arrival in Saudi Arabia is not tied to any specific club, as he was brought in by the country itself. This move underscores the immense financial power of the PIF, which is single-handedly providing the necessary resources for securing these marquee signings.

While the impact of Ronaldo’s arrival on the field for Al Nassr has not matched the club’s expectations, the addition of Messi promises to inject a new level of excitement into Saudi Arabian football. Fans and enthusiasts alike eagerly await further details about the deal and the specific club that will have the honor of welcoming the legendary Messi to Saudi Arabia.
