A real dance of demons has been taking place around Lionel Messi in recent days.
The legendary star ends his contract with Paris Saint-Germain this summer and all reports state that he will not extend his contract in France, certainly not in light of the team's professional disappointment this season and the scornful whistles of some fans towards the Argentine.
But what will be Messi's next stop?
While behind the scenes Barcelona's attempts to bring him back continue, Al Hilal of Saudi Arabia is trying to carry out a hijacking and at least when it comes to financial capabilities, Barcelona has no ability to deal with it.
According to the latest reports coming from Saudi Arabia, the Al Hilal team is ready to pay Messi no less than 400 million euros per season.
A simply imaginary sum, certainly considering Messi's advanced age.
According to the report, Al Hilal has already submitted the proposal to Messi's representatives and will try to convince him to join it.

This is double what Cristiano Ronaldo earns at El Nasser and if Messi eventually accepts this offer, these two giant stars will play in the same league again for the first time since 2018, when Ronaldo left Real Madrid for Juventus.
However, unlike Ronaldo, who tried to find a senior team in the Champions League and was unsuccessful, Messi has the more convenient option of returning to Barcelona, a city where his children grew up and he already has a home, and although he will not earn an amount close to the amounts he would receive in Saudi Arabia, in Barcelona he will guarantee that he will play in the league again The champions and of course will benefit from the support of the crowd that admires him.
