In a recent report by renowned football journalist Fabrizio Romano. A stunning revelation has emerged about the future of Leo Messi in European football. As the dust settles his departure from PSG looks imminent. Several clubs are vying for the legendary Argentine’s services. Amongst them, Al Hilal has reportedly sent an official bid to Messi, offering a staggering salary worth over €400 million per year.
Leo Messi Transfer Priority
Leo’s absolute priority, according to Romano’s report, is to continue playing in Europe. This raises eyebrows as Messi had previously joined Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) after leaving Barcelona, but it seems he may be open to other options. However, Barcelona, his former club where he spent the majority of his illustrious career, is also waiting for Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations to send their own bid and potentially open talks for Messi’s return.
Romano’s report also sheds light on PSG’s bid for Messi. Which was apparently not accepted at this stage. Leo Messi reportedly sought sporting guarantees from the French club, indicating that he is not only concerned about financial aspects but also wants to ensure that he joins a club with a competitive and ambitious sporting project.
