Transfer: Messi accepts world-record offer to join new club

Father of Lionel Messi and agent, Jorge, has accepted a record-breaking offer of €1.2billion from Al-Hilal over two seasons, according to Foot Mercato.

That amount is worth more than double what Cristiano Ronaldo earns at Al-Nassr.

Although Messi’s preference is a return to Barcelona, his increasing acceptance of the Catalan club’s financial issues is pushing him further towards the Gulf State.

Even with the exits of Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets from the Camp Nou, Messi’s exorbitant wages may be too high for LaLiga’s strict regulations.

Messi’s deal with Paris Saint-Germain runs out this summer, and he is not looking likely to extend his two-year stay in France.

The 35-year-old has also been linked with a move to Major Soccer League (MLS).
