Lionel Messi has been offered a two-year contract deal worth €1 billion (£887m), to a Saudi club, a new report has claimed.
According to the French newspaper, L’Equipe, the monstrous deal, if penned, would be worth double what Cristiano Ronaldo earns at Saudi side Al-Nassr.
L’Equipe also detailed how much the ‘exceptional’ offer on the table for Messi is worth, claiming it totals a staggering €1bn over two seasons, with the option of a third.
Messi’s future at Paris Saint-Germain has been under the radar following his suspension for an unauthorised trip to Saudi Arabia for a commercial deal.
It remains to be seen whether Saudi Arabia appeals to Messi – and his wife – who is eager to stay in a competitive league.
