Al-Hilal in talks to sign PSG star Messi after father's Riyadh trip

PSG star Lionel Messi is set to be offered a deal worth £194m-a-season to move to Saudi Arabia.

Messi's father was spotted in Riyadh earlier this week.

The 35-year-old's PSG contract is due to expire this summer, and he will become a free agent if he does not agree an extension before then.

Messi's father and agent Jorge, who is also a Saudi ambassador, has been in Riyadh in recent days, sparking speculation that he could be negotiating a move for his son.

Saudi Arabia are looking to take advantage of the uncertainty surrounding Messi's future, with one of their top clubs Al-Hilal ready to offer him a lucrative contract once their transfer ban finishes at the end of the season, reports Marca.

Messi's great rival Cristiano Ronaldo joined Al-Nassr in a £175m-a-year deal in December, and Saudi Arabia are now planning to convince the Argentine to follow him by moving to the Middle East.
