Argentine superstar Lionel Messi’s sensational big-money move to Saudi Arabia is all but concluded.
The 35-year-old is leaving Paris Saint-Germain when his contract expires in the summer.
Now there is a claim from AFP that Messi will sign for Saudi side Al-Hilal when the season concludes.
Messi is said to have been offered a contract that is worth up to £522 million.
The World Cup winner is already being paid to serve as an ambassador for Saudi Arabia’s attempts to host a future World Cup tournament.
Messi, if he signs for Al-Hilal, would join rival Cristiano Ronaldo in the Saudi domestic league.
