Lionel Messi exited the Laliga giants in 2021 after it was confirmed the club will not be able to keep him without clashing with Laliga fair play rules.

The Argentina international exited the club in tears after spending almost two decades with the club, nursing his career to become the greatest player ever.

After his Barcelona exit, Lionel Messi joined PSG signing a two-year contract which is set to expire at the end of the season.

With few months remaining to the end of his contract in Paris, Lionel Messi is yet to renew the contract, sparking speculations he may likely exit the club at the end of the season.

Messi has been linked with a move away from the Ligue 1 giants with rumors linking him to David Beckham’s Inter Miami in the MLS.

Recently, there were reports Messi may likely join Saudi Pro League with Al-Nassr rival, Al-Hilal, reportedly ready to make him the highest-paid player in the world.

Al-Hilal were reportedly ready to table a whooping £194m-a-year offer for Lionel Messi.

The move would have seen the Barcelona legend recreate the old-time rivalry between him and Cristiano Ronaldo. This time, in Saudi Pro League not in the Laliga.

His father, Jorge Messi, was spotted in Saudi Arabia further fueling the rumors with some reports disclosing that Saudi authorities were ready to leverage Jorge Messi’s ambassadorial role with the country to lure his son to the Saudi Pro League.

However, Jorge Messi came out in a furious social media rant, debunking rumors linking his son to a PSG exit. He described them as “all lies”.
