FIFA agent claims Lionel Messi won’t return to Barcelona after PSG exit amid reports of joining Al-Hilal: “He has an offer of 600 million”

FIFA agent Marco Kirdemir has made a bold statement, saying that Lionel Messi will not return to FC Barcelona as he has a $600 million offer from Saudi club Al-Hilal on the table.

Lionel Messi is currently serving a ban after he decided to travel to Saudi Arabia without the permission of Paris Saint-Germain. His sudden trip to Saudi has raised eyebrows after the news of Al-Hilal offering the Argentinian superstar a gigantic deal was made public.

The 2022 World Cup winner’s future destination has been uncertain for quite some time now. He has been heavily linked with his former club, FC Barcelona, to make a fairytale return. However, Marco Kidemir acknowledged that the Barcelona option is ruled out. 

“He is not going to Barcelona. He wants to come back when he retires,” said Kidemir.

Al-Hilal made an astonishing offer to Lionel Messi

Kidemir has verified the outstanding offer from Al Hilal. “He has an offer of 600 million dollars from Al-Hilal, the King’s team,” says Kirdemir.

He then added: “Messi traveled to the country to get to know it, to see the place where he could live; if his family gives the OK he will play in Saudi Arabia”.

Marco flew to Madrid for a crucial meeting a few months ago, where Messi was the main topic of discussion: “We met in a hotel with delegates from the Saudi Arabian Federation and we talked about him. If he had traveled to a country that did not have problems with Qatar, there would not have been so much speculation. This has angered the PSG president.”

The 35-year-old Argentinian will reach the end of his contract with PSG in June. However, it is speculated that Messi might consider terminating his contract with the club within the next 10 days, as he is dissatisfied with the ban decisions.

However, earlier today, Messi officially apologized for his actions toward the club, as seen in the video below:
