The legend “Lionel Messi” continues to write history, but this time with the largest annual contract, as the “Telegraph” newspaper revealed negotiations with the “Paris Saint-Germain” club player to move to the Saudi League for an annual contract worth $ 400 million this summer, according to what I have seen. It is “Al-Arabiya.net”.
The deal, which Messi’s father is negotiating, would by far surpass the $200m-plus deal Cristiano Ronaldo signed to play in Saudi Arabia until the summer of 2025.
It is noteworthy that his current club, Paris Saint-Germain, suspended the Argentine World Cup winner, on Tuesday, for a period of two weeks, after traveling without permission from the organization.
And the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) reported that Messi had previously agreed to an initial deal to stay with Paris Saint-Germain, but after the suspension was made, he would not renew his contract.
The potential signing would be the latest move by Saudi Arabia to turn the world of professional sports on its head. In addition to the recent signing of Ronaldo, the kingdom has stakes in the LIV golf league and the Public Investment Fund has bought English Premier League club Newcastle United.
