The subject of Lionel Messi’s future has dominated discussions throughout 2023, and recently, the speculation has intensified as rumors circulate that he will depart Paris Saint-Germain at the conclusion of the season.
With Messi’s contract with the French champions set to expire this summer, he will become a free agent, enabling him to engage in negotiations with interested parties.
Among those expressing interest is Al Hilal, and Fahad Bin Saad Bin Nafel, their President, was questioned regarding the matter. His response was firm and straightforward: “Do not inquire about Messi; I will not provide any updates. If any official developments arise, you will discover them in the media.”
Barcelona is also eager to secure Messi’s services this summer, and they have been making progress in formulating an offer for their former talisman. Nevertheless, their ability to proceed hinges largely upon La Liga’s approval of their viability plan, which will be evaluated on Friday.
