According to L’Equipe, Al Hilal is preparing to offer Lionel Messi the biggest salary in football history in order to bring him to Saudi Arabia this summer. Reportedly, Messi’s contract will be the most lucrative of any footballer past or present, surpassing his great rival Cristiano Ronaldo. It has been previously reported that Al Hilal would offer Messi a contract in the region of €400 million per year.

Messi tempted to join Al Hilal

L’Equipe reports that Lionel Messi’s camp is seriously tempted to join Al Hilal, where he would become a rival of Cristiano Ronaldo, who plays at Al-Nassr. Further reports in Spain, such as from Onda Cero, suggest that Messi is almost certain to join Al Hilal now. PSG has suspended Messi for two weeks without pay after he missed training on Monday due to a trip to Saudi Arabia, which was officially explained as being for commercial reasons. However, some journalists report that Messi sat down for transfer talks with Al Hilal during his trip to Saudi Arabia, and they went well. Messi’s contract with PSG expires at the end of the season, and talks to renew the deal have ground to a halt. While former club Barcelona and Inter Miami are also in the running to sign Messi on a free transfer, Al Hilal is now the favourite.
