“Messi in Saudi Arabia? We would like to bring him one day…”
Saudi Football Federation general secretary Ibrahim Alkassim has said he doesn’t know anything about Leo Messi’s possible signing from Al-Hilal. He did, however, confess that he would love to see the Argentine in this competition one day.
It looks like it will be a long time before we see a meeting between Messi and Cristiano again. After the embrace between the two after the friendly match between the best Saudi players and PSG, the Middle East spoke about the possible future of the Argentine star in these lands.
Ibrahim Alkassim, secretary general of the Saudi Football Federation, removed the PSG striker from the Saudi championship. “At the moment we don’t know anything about a possible arrival of Leo Messi,” he told ‘Marca’.
However, Ibrahim Alkassim admits that he would be delighted to see him play soon: “I do not hide the fact that as the Saudi Federation, we would like to have him one day in the national championship.
A response that follows rumors that put Messi at Al Hilal, a club that would offer the striker 278 million a year to leave for Saudi Arabia. However, that doesn’t seem to be happening as according to the latest reports, the ’10’ is set to renew his contract with PSG.
In Saudi Arabia, they are resigned to the fact that, at least for now, they won’t be able to rely on Messi. You never know what might happen in the future…
