If the trend has been for several weeks for an extension of Lionel Messi at PSG, Nasser Al-Attiyah, close to Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, ensures that the Argentinian will turn his back on the club of the capital.
It would only be a matter of weeks. For many, the extension of Lionel Messi to PSG is recorded. An agreement in principle has indeed been reached between the entourage of the sevenfold Ballon d’Or and the club of the capital and the former Barcelonan, at the end of the contract next June, should return for two new seasons, the second optional . Now flourishing in Paris, the Argentinian could even end his career there. This is at least the dream of the Parisian leaders.
However, according to someone close to Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, another scenario is emerging. Nasser Al-Attiyah, cousin of the president of PSG, is indeed convinced of the departure of Lionel Messi at the end of the season. “From what I see now, also from Al-Nassr, who signed Cristiano Ronaldo with a crazy amount of a million dollars, I’m sure that Messi, in a few months, about 3 or 6 months, a club in Saudi Arabia will also sign Messi. You will see it. And I can tell you which team: I’m sure he will go to Al-Hilal”he thus assured in the columns of the Sports world.
And the Qatari driver, on his way to winning another Dakar in Saudi Arabia, to drive the point home. “If there is nothing more?” Nothing else, believe me… (laughs). He will not return to Barça. He will go to Saudi Arabia as a Christian. There’s a lot of money here and the players are looking for a big contract.” he asserted. Lionel Messi has already signed with Saudi Arabia since the native of Rosario has been an ambassador for tourism in Saudi Arabia since last spring.
