There were more than 600 million, Al-Hilal’s latest offer for Messi is revealed


Less than four months after Leo signed for Inter Miami, they announced the final move from the Middle East.


Lionel Messi has been an Inter Miami player since July of this year and it is already a reality that he will never play in Europe again. In fact, it is very difficult for him to have another team after the United States franchise, although there is some hope among Newell’s fans to enjoy the Argentine captain before he hangs up his boots. Now, at the end of June, the mystery of Leo’s future was a real mystery and one of those that sounded the loudest at that time was Al-Hilal of Saudi Arabia.

The Saudi league had given the big blow with the incorporation of Cristiano Ronaldo after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and precisely starred in the last transfer market with other top incorporations such as Karim Benzema, Neymar, Sadio Mané or N’Golo Kanté, among others. . However, Messi could also have been on that list, although the Rosario’s motivation was never financial and he did not let himself be dazzled by the millions of euros they offered him.

La Pulga was offered a contract of 600 million euros per season, which would have made him the highest paid athlete in history, but the top Ballon d’Or winner (8) never seriously considered it. However, in the last few hours they announced that Al-Hilal came to offer a final offer that did not come to light and that considerably improved the aforementioned one.

According to journalist Guillem Balague, “during the saga of Messi’s future in the summer, the Al-Hilal delegation was in Paris with its plane ready with an offer of one billion per year, but Messi never considered his offer seriously.” source is more than reliable, since it is the author of the authorized biography of Lionel. If he had accepted that amount, the star would have had a higher salary than Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar and Kylian Mbappé combined.

What is Lionel Messi’s salary at Inter Miami?
