Argentine star Lionel Messi, a Paris Saint-Germain player, has just arrived in Saudi Arabia with his family, sparking controversy among Al-Hilal fans.
Many press reports indicated that Al-Hilal from Saudi Arabia made an offer to sign Messi next summer.
The Argentine star has a contract with Paris Saint-Germain that expires in the summer of 2023 and has not yet decided on his position on a contract extension.
The truth about Lionel Messi’s talks with Al-Hilal after he arrived in Saudi Arabia
Ahmed Al-Khatib, the Minister of Tourism of Saudi Arabia, said on his personal page via Twitter: “I welcome Saudi Ambassador for Tourism Lionel and his family on his second tourist trip to Saudi Arabia.”
Sports critic Abu Latifa said that Messi’s presence in Saudi Arabia is to support tourism and is not related to negotiations with the Al-Hilal club.
Messi will arrive in the kingdom within 48 hours from Paris, but this trip is only in agreement with the Ministry of Tourism.
His agent (his father) is very convinced of the proposal made to his son and the signs are encouraging.
There is currently no official offer other than from Al Hilal.
