Messi rejects the huge Saudi Al Hilal offer For 500 million a year …and decides his future

Messi rejects the huge Saudi Al Hilal

The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) said today, Wednesday, that Lionel Messi rejected a huge offer (500 million every year) from Saudi Arabia and will move to Inter Miami, which belongs to the American Major League Soccer, in a free transfer, after the end of his contract with Paris Saint-Germain, the French champion.

Messi, who played his last match with Paris Saint-Germain early this week, has been linked to a return to Barcelona, ​​​​but the club suffers from the restrictions of La Liga’s fair financial play rules.

If the deal is concluded with Miami, the 35-year-old Argentine will play for the first time outside the continent of Europe since joining the Barcelona Academy at the age of 13, before becoming the club’s all-time top scorer with 672 goals.

A source familiar with the negotiations told Reuters this week that Messi wanted to move to a team where he could get a share of ownership and also wanted to get the most out of his contract with Adidas and Apple, which has contracts with the American League.

And the American League gets a fixed revenue of about $ 200 million annually from Apple until a certain limit of subscriptions is reached to watch the competition, after which it gets a percentage of the subscription revenue.

Messi’s move to Major League Soccer is expected to lead viewers to subscribe to the streaming platform Apple TV to follow the world’s most famous soccer players.

Messi, who led Argentina to a World Cup triumph in Qatar in December and won a record seven Ballons d’Or, won Ligue 1 title as well as the French Super Cup during his two seasons with PSG.
