Lionel Messi’s future has been thrown into huge doubt, with the player set to leave PSG on a free transfer at the end of the season. The Argentine has several offers on the table, but his priority is a move back to Barcelona. However, the sprotive press is talking about the extraterrestrial amount with which Lionel Messi is being lured to Saudi Arabia, with the French press being the one who dropped the bombshell.
Lonel Messi’s future in question
The year 2023 brings the end for the Argentine star PSG adventures, after the end of the contract with the French team. The sports press in France confirms Messi’s departure from PSG, while also talking about several offers.
One of them involves Inter Miami, the team patronized by David Beckham, and the scenario with which the French press is juggling is that he could go to Inter Miami, and the Americans give him in the form of a loan to exactly the team that propelled him to the firmament of international football, Barcelona.
But despite this, Barça will not be able to proceed with a bid any time soon as La Liga has not approved the financial feasibility plan. Messi is losing patience with the Catalans and has reportedly given them ten days to put their financial affairs in order.

Despite rejecting claims of a “done deal” to take the Argentine star to Saudi Arabia, the French newspaper L’Equipe detailed how much the offer on the table for Messi is worth. AFP quoted a “close Saudi source” as saying the departure of the seven-time French soccer Ballon d’Or winner was certain, with the Argentine set to initial a huge contract in the Gulf kingdom.
“The negotiations did not take as long as in the case of Ronaldo. He won’t be there just for football.
He will be there to contribute to the attractiveness of the kingdom,” said the Saudi source quoted by AFP, adding that, as with Ronaldo, the financial package comes from the Saudi Sovereign Wealth Fund (SIF).
Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract in Saudi Arabia, estimated at €400 million until June 2025, has made him the world’s highest-paid athlete in 2023, according to Forbes’ annual ranking. According to the information, it would have been a record global budget, between 500 and 600 million euros, and in order to attract Messi, players close to him were targeted, such as Busquets, Alba, Ramos, Verratti, Di Maria, Paredes.

But, the last minute information stated by the Argentinian publication Diario OLE changes the situation.
Diario OLE: “Messi loses interest in Al-Hilal’s revolutionary offer”
Now, according to a new report published by Diario OLE, Messi is losing interest in Al-Hilal’s revolutionary offer as the player is not convinced by the level of football in Saudi Arabia. He wants to continue playing at the highest level and probably won’t accept the multi-million euro offer from the Saudi giants, say OLE.
As such, Inter Miami are preparing a firm bid for Messi in an attempt to convince him to join the American Football League. The proposed contract would be for at least two years. Messi’s idea is to decide his future in the coming days as he doesn’t want to stay put for long.
The player faced such a scenario before when he was released from his contract at Barcelona two years ago, with PSG being the only destination that emerged. For now, if this report is to be believed, Al-Hilal have lost their cards, while Barcelona are ruled out for the time being due to a lack of a financial plan, leaving Inter Miami in pole position.
For Lionel Messi, 36 years old in June, according to Olé, Inter Miami already has a draft of the big offer and is even aware that they need to hire some important figures to surround Messi. This happens from day to day, today the trend is that Inter is coming in force and that the wind is blowing for the United States. It should also be taken into account that this country will host the Copa America next year, as well as the 2026 World Cup, along with Mexico and Canada.
