While his departure from PSG has been formalized, Lionel Messi is still awaiting an offer from FC Barcelona and that’s good, the management of the Blaugranas hope to have authorization from the Spanish Liga next Tuesday!
And Karim Benzemawhose departure from Real Madrid was announced on Sunday, will join Cristiano Ronaldo in the Saudi league (playing for champion Al-Ittihad), the departure of Lionel Messi in Saudi Arabia has nothing to do. A staggering jackpot of one billion euros for two years would have been proposed, but the Argentine captain, soon to be 36 years old, would not have decided anything yet.
Many media thus affirm that the priority of “La Pulga” is always to make a resounding return to the FC Barcelona, for a last dance in his training club, where he became a football legend (even before winning the World Cup with Argentina last December). He would be ready to wait a bit, while no offer has yet been made by the management chaired by Joan Laporta.
Barça will finally know!
FCB have asked the Spanish La Liga if they will remain within the financial fair play rules imposed by the championship in the event of the signing of Leo Messi, and, after a long wait, the answer is expected for next Tuesday, as the says Argentinian journalist Veronica Brunati. The Catalan leaders will probably know if they can offer a contract at 12 or even 20 million euros to the Argentine number 10.
If it is said that the staff of the Saudi Arabian championship is waiting for a quick response, Messi has (finally) no interest in rushing into his choice. The Ballons d’Or record holder (7) is under contract with the PSG until June 30 and after the next two matches of the Albiceleste (against Australia in China and against Indonesia in Jakarta, June 15 and 19), there will still not be a free day.

✅ The Saudi media reports that in 48 hours the footballer must appear in Arabia to sign his bond with the Al-Hílal club for 600 million dollars. It is the club with the most titles in Arabia…
