Top 10 Premier League goals in 2022/23 (Sport1)
Saudi Arabia continues its attempt to lure global soccer stars with grandiose sums of money as part of its bid to win a bid to host the 2030 World Cup. After Cristiano Ronaldo's move to Al Nassr, it is reported in Spain that Al Hilal offered Leo Messi around 1.2 billion for two years, with a huge contract that includes signing bonuses for his father and brother. It was also reported yesterday that Karim Benzema also holds an offer from a team in Saudi Arabia, and on Tuesday Spain claimed he was "with a foot out" due to the high sums, which cannot be refused.

Benzema's contract at Real Madrid was automatically renewed following his Ballon d'Or win, but he has yet to announce that he will continue, and Spain claim he is not giving up the Saudi option. The reason is beyond his current contract, which offers him €200 million per season on a two-year contract. The issue is also that this is a long-term contract, in which Laurel will earn large sums of money as an ambassador for Saudi football and try to promote the tournament in the world. In addition, these contracts are tax-free.
As is well known, Saudi Arabia is doing everything possible to win the World Cup event, for which it competes against Spain, Portugal and Morocco. She currently has the support of the African Football Association, which would give her 56 votes, but to win she wants international support from famous figures in the sport. They already have Ronaldo, Leo Messi maybe soon, Benzema is also on the way, it seems.
It was also claimed today that Edin Dzeko also received from Al Hilal.
