Paris Saint-Germain forward, Lionel Messi is set for a £320million-a-year deal if he decides to leave Europe for Saudi Arabia this summer.
Messi is expected to leave the Ligue 1 champions when his current contract expires in June.
Although a lot of other clubs are monitoring his situation, the Saudi Pro League is will offer him the most lucrative deal.
According to The Telegraph, Messi’s representatives have begun talks over a move to Saudi Arabia, with the government said to be involved in discussions.
One of the potential destinations for Messi is Al-Hilal, who are rivals of Ronaldo’s club Al-Nassr.
