Marco Kirdemir, the FIFA agent, has made a claim about Lionel Messi.
He claimed that Messi, the Paris Saint-Germain forward, will not be returning to Barcelona amid reports he is set to leave the Parisians.
Kirdemir insisted that Messi has a $600 million offer to join Saudi Arabia club Al-Hilal in the summer.
Messi, 35, has been suspended for two weeks by PSG for his recent ‘unauthorised’ trip to Saudi Arabia.
Reports had emerged that the Argentina World Cup winner will leave the Parisians in the summer.
There have been widespread reports about Messi making a return to his boyhood club Barcelona.
However, Kirdemir believes that the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner will join Al-Hilal if his family gives him permission.
Kirdemir said (via MARCA), “He’s not going to Barcelona. He wants to come back when he retires.”
“He has an offer of 600 million dollars from Al-Hilal, the King’s team. Messi travelled 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.”
