Messi Free Agency: Round Up of News Concerning Argentine’s Future

The Lionel Messi free agency saga hit overdrive on Monday, with the news dropping rapidly. PSG Talk is rounding up all the news into one piece for those who need to might have missed some of the information that trickled out from various outlets.

Let’s begin with Olé’s Hernán Claus, who reported that Premier League, Al-Hilal and Inter Miami have appeared as options for Messi when the 35-year-old hits free agency. 

Claus didn’t reveal which Premier League side would be interested in the Argentine, but it’s safe to say the destination is one of the four teams qualified for the 2023-24 UEFA Champions League. 

Afterward, TyC Sports’ Gastón Edul released his report, revealing that Messi will decide on his future soon. PSG has one more Ligue 1 contest against Clermont Foot on Saturday at the Parce des Princes, so the player likely wants to focus on the match.

Furthermore, Edul noted that there is no guarantee that Barcelona will present him with an offer before June 30, as the Catalan club must first complete several operations.

Then came the information out of Spain as Mundo Deportivo reported that the Spanish club isn’t an option for Messi because there’s no offer. Additionally, the media outlet stated that the Argentine player has several proposals, including one from Saudi Arabia’s Al-Hilal.

Mundo Deportivo concluded that the veteran did not want to and could not wait any longer. Today, Messi has no guarantee that La Liga will green-light Barcelona’s financial package and then the club has to offload players to make room on their wage bill.

Finally, the biggest bombshell of the evening came when Foot Mercato reported that Messi’s father, Jorge, accepted a €1.2 billion offer from Saudi Arabi side Al-Hilal. 

The French media outlet added that the proposal is a two-year contract with €600 per season wages, earning the biggest commission in history. 


That’s all the news regarding Messi and the transfer saga, but continue to expect news like Monday to come out fast and hot as the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner figures out his next destination.
