According to recent reports, Saudi Arabia has reportedly offered a lucrative deal to Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi, following in the footsteps of Cristiano Ronaldo. The oil-rich country is said to be keen on expanding its global brand and has identified Messi as a key player to help achieve this goal.
This offer comes after Ronaldo signed a deal with the Saudi Arabian football club Al- Hilal earlier this year, which was seen as a major coup for the country’s football league. While it remains to be seen whether Messi will accept the offer, it is clear that Saudi Arabia is looking to make a big splash in the football world by attracting top talent to play in their league.
Messi, widely regarded as one of the greatest footballers of all time, has spent his entire professional career at Barcelona, where he has won numerous titles and broken numerous records. However, the 34-year-old’s contract with the Spanish club is set to expire at the end of this season, and there is much speculation about where he will go next. The reported offer from Saudi Arabia is sure to add fuel to the fire of this speculation.
