Lionel Messi to play in Saudi Arabia? This is what his father Jorge said.

Lionel Messi will play in Saudi Arabia next season for AI Hilal, according to Saudi sources who believe that once “small details” have been worked out, the agreement is final. According to the same insiders with knowledge of the negotiations, his deal will be “huge” at 400 million per year.

Leo Messi says it’s fake news

In breaking news, Jorge Messi, the father and advisor of Lionel Messi, has refuted speculations that a deal with AI Hilal was already finalized. He made it clear that nothing had been signed, agreed upon, or even verbally agreed upon and that no decision would be taken until the end of the current season.

Jorge Messi stated that such rumors are only conjecture and that nothing will occur before the current season is over.

This declaration disproves earlier AFP reports that Messi had consented to a record-breaking transfer to Al-Hilal. He was reunited with Cristiano Ronaldo thanks to the £400 million signing.

Jorge said:

“There’s absolutely nothing agreed with any club for next season. We will decide at the end of the season. It will never be decided before the end of the current season with Paris Saint-Germain. Leo’s name is always used around but we can guarantee that there’s nothing signed. No agreed or even verbally agreed and it won’t happen before the end of the season. It’s full of fake news around with no proof of what these ‘media’ say in public.”
