Lionel Messi is being contacted to move to the Middle East. And Al-Hilal coach Ramon Diaz spoke up about this rumor recently.
Lionel Messi will leave PSG this summer when his contract with the French team expires. Many destinations have begun to be rumored, from Barcelona to the MLS and Saudi Arabia. The most prominent of which is of course Saudi Arabia, with rumors of a £400 million signing. In the national championship of this country, there is also a rival Ronaldo waiting for Messi.
However, Al-Hilal coach Ramon Diaz did not reveal much about this rumor in a recent press conference.
Coach Diaz is with his students preparing for the King Cup final against Al-Wehda on May 12. When asked about the Messi connection rumors, Diaz said: “Now we are focused on the game. We have a final ahead of us. After the final, we’ll see what happens.”
Barcelona also admitted to opening talks with Messi’s agent about the possibility of bringing the player back to the Camp Nou. However, financial difficulties make it difficult for Barca to turn this deal into reality.
Inter Miami boss David Beckham has long expressed his desire to bring Messi to the MLS. However, the huge sums of money from Saudi Arabia clearly have a much greater appeal to Messi. Anyway, Messi is only 35 years old and may still choose to continue playing at the top instead of finding a destination to retire in the summer.
