Lionel Messi ended his two seasons at Paris Saint-Germain with a 3-2 loss to Clermont Foot on Saturday at the Parc des Princes.
Now the 35-year-old will focus on his future and where he’ll play in the 2023-24 season. Reports suggest that Al-Hilal is the next destination for the veteran.
The Messi to Al-Hilal rumor continues getting louder, as the Agence France-Presse reported on Sunday (h/t SPORT), citing sources that senior leaders for the Saudi Arabian club traveled to Paris to close the mega-contract with the Argentine star.
Furthermore, the Saudi delegation intends to meet with the footballer’s father and agent, Jorge Messi, in Paris. The discussions between the two parties will aim to achieve the 2022 FIFA World Cup winner’s signature as soon as possible.
Meanwhile, at FC Barcelona, they begin to see the return of the prodigal son home as more difficult, even though the desire of the sports management of the Barça entity was for Messi to be the team leader for next season.
