Jordi Cruyff Spills the Beans on Barcelona’s Bold Bid for Lionel Messi

FC Barcelona has to play the waiting game as they currently cannot pursue Lionel Messi. The Argentine will become a free agent on June 30 and his camp is beginning to explore his options. 

Messi is reportedly aware and would like to return to Barcelona, but he is issuing a key demand before considering the Spanish club. Nonetheless, those on the Catalan side continue to express their desire for the 35-year-old to return. 

“We are trying to sign Messi,” Jordi Cruyff said on Jijantes FC. “It’s not a lie. But he is the owner of his future, it’s Leo’s decision… Whatever he decides, he is a fan of the club and deserves a statue.”

If La Liga continues to drag out reviewing Barcelona’s financial package, Messi might have no choice but to examine other prospects. A report out of France revealed that the 2022 FIFA World Cup winner’s camp has reportedly accepted an offer to join Saudi Arabian side Al-Hilal.

The reporting notes that the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner will receive a two-year contract worth €1.2 billion. Regarding the contract details, Messi will earn €600 million per season, which would be the biggest commission in history.
