Lionel Messi

The banter over who is the GOAT in football is about to be extended to Saudi Arabia if reports on Lionel Messi’s move to the Middle East come true.

The World Cup winner is being lined up for a £194m-per-year deal to move to Saudi Arabia – if he is unable to agree terms on an extended contract with Paris Saint-Germain according to The Sun.


The Argentine, now 35, is set to become a free agent this summer and has also been linked with a return to Barcelona and a move to David Beckham’s MLS club, Inter Miami.

Apparently, the two most talked about footballers in the last decade are planning their retirement in the Middle East.
