According to FIFA agent Marco Kirdemir, Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi will not be returning to Barcelona despite rumors that he is leaving the Parisian club. Kirdemir claims that Messi has received a $600 million offer to join Al-Hilal, a Saudi Arabian club, in the summer.
The Argentine footballer, who is 35 years old, was suspended by PSG for two weeks due to an ‘unauthorized’ trip to Saudi Arabia. Recent reports have suggested that Messi will leave the Parisians in the summer, with many speculating that he will make a return to his boyhood club, Barcelona.
However, Kirdemir is of the opinion that the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner will join Al-Hilal if his family approves. He said, “He’s not going to Barcelona. He wants to come back when he retires.” Kirdemir claims that Messi went to Saudi Arabia to explore the place where he could live if he accepts the offer from Al-Hilal. If his family gives the green light, he will play in Saudi Arabia.
