Al Hilal tempts Messi, ready monstrous offer of 300 million a year

After Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival at Al Nassr, Saudi Arabia already has its next target in mind: the Argentine world champion

Saudi Arabia after Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival at Al Nassr, he already has his next goal in mind. The world champion Leo Messi. The goal of the Saudi state is to open up to the world, to increase tourism that enters its borders, and it is trying to do this through sport. His latest bet is football. For this reason, its main objective is to host the 2030 World Cup with a joint candidacy with Egypt and Greece, but first it needs to increase the visibility of its championship on the planet of football and it wants to do it through two big stars: Cristiano Ronaldo, already in Saudi with a pharaonic contract worth 200 million a year, and Leo Messi, who will try with a monstrous offer. According to the Mundo Deportivo, in fact Al Hilal, the biggest rival of Al Nassr, wants Leo Messi and would be willing to do an offer of 300 million dollars a year. A difficult figure to refuse, even if it remains to be seen whether the Argentine would agree to move to a country with such different customs and such a complex climate in terms of temperatures.

In Arab countries, the Saudi football league is the most followed and appreciated due to the huge competition between its clubs and its tier, especially the major teams from Riyadh and Jeddah. In the capital there is what is the country’s main rivalry: Al Halil and Al Nassr. “It’s considered ‘El Clásico’ here. We call it ‘The Riyadh Derby’,” a source points out to MD. They want Messi to generate a rivalry followed all over the world, but above all to raise the level of the championship and to have the eyes of the whole planet look towards Saudi Arabia. The Saudi state would help Al-Halil with a large sum of money to be able to sign the current world champion with Argentina to continue improving their league with two stars of the stature of the two men who have dominated football for the past two decades .

Messi’s relationship with Saudi Arabia is no secret. The 2022 world champions Argentina captain is currently a Saudi tourism ambassador. “Lionel Messi wants you to unleash your inner thrill-seeker and discover the unimaginable. Whether you travel to discover new things or discover old things,” reads the website of ‘Visit Saudi’, the country’s tourism office. This site lists several places that have dazzled Lionel during his visits.
