Saudi Arabia’s financial power is beyond imagination.
Saudi Arabia’s hottest target is Lionel Messi. Messi is getting farther and farther away from Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) with the recent team departure incident, and news of his trip to Saudi Arabia has circulated. In particular, Saudi club Al Hilal is said to have recently made an astronomical offer to Messi. In April, European football transfer market expert Fabricio Romano said, “Al-Hilal has already officially offered Messi an annual salary 먹튀검증of 400 million euros (approximately 580.2 billion won).”
There were reports that Messi had accepted, but it turned out to be false. Messi’s father and agent, Jorge, refuted. Jorge recently posted a direct refutation of rumors about Messi’s transfer to Saudi Arabia. Jorge explained, “So far, Messi’s next destination has not been decided. We will not decide until the end of the season. Nothing has been decided yet.”
Messi’s trip to Al-Hilal ended when Jorge directly denied it, but it hasn’t turned off yet. It was also an opportunity to confirm the enormous financial power to aim for recruitment by proposing an annual salary of 400 million euros (approximately 580.2 billion won) to Messi.
Al-Hilal doesn’t want to stop at Messi. According to Spanish media ‘Sport’, Al-Hilal is trying to sign Sergio Busquets along with Messi. Barcelona announced on its official website on the 10th (Korean time) that “Busquets is leaving the team at the end of this season.” Busquets will be released as a free agent (FA) at the end of this season.
Al-Hilal is aiming to recruit Messi and Busquets, keeping in mind that they will both come out as free agents in this transfer market. ‘Sport’ said, “Al-Hilal is the most ambitious team aiming for Messi and Busquets in this transfer window.”
The media continued, “Messi said he would not make a decision on his destination until the end of this season. But Busquets is currently considering a trip to Saudi Arabia as an option.” While Busquets is more likely to go to Saudi Arabia than Messi, attention is also gathering on Messi’s next destination.
