Agence France-Presse reports that Lionel Messi has finalized his move to Saudi Arabia despite Al-Hilal’s interest. The Argentinian icon’s future is uncertain as his contract with Les Parisiens expires at the end of June. Some have suggested that he may be considering leaving the club this spring as a specialist free agent.

Fabrizio Romao said that Messi is certain to leave PSG. Inter Miami and Major League Soccer club Barcelona are both interested in the winner of 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Al-Hilal is the only club that has made an offer to Messi. Al-Hilal has a plan to lure the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner to Saudi Arabia. Meanwhile, reports claim that Messi is not in favor of moving to the Middle East due to his concerns about the culture.
Now it appears that the country has succeeded in convincing the PSG star to reconsider. According to the source, the 35-year old will play for Saudi Arabia in next season. According to AFP a source familiar with the negotiations told them that Messi’s move to Saudi Arabia was “done deal”. Although the Argentinean squad has not yet been announced, Al-Hilal will probably be where he plays.
The report claims that the contract was “huge,” however, the financial details of the deal have not been disclosed. PSG refused to comment on Messi’s situation when contacted by AFP. The French giants, according to reports have stated that Messi’s contract only lasts until June 30.
