Messi’s dad denies €600m Saudi deal rumours for PSG star

Lionel Messi’s father Jorge has dis­missed reports that his son has signed a mas­sive con­tract with Sau­di Arabia’s Al Hilal for next sea­son. He said that Mes­si has not made any deci­sion about his future and will wait until the end of his cur­rent deal with Paris Saint-Ger­main.

Jorge post­ed a state­ment on social media, say­ing that there is “no word, no sig­na­ture, no agree­ment, noth­ing” with any club for Mes­si. He accused some media out­lets of using Messi’s name to gain fame and spread­ing false rumours with­out ver­i­fy­ing the information.

He said that Mes­si will only decide his next move after fin­ish­ing the sea­son with PSG, where he has a con­tract until June 30. He also said that he respects Messi’s choice and will sup­port him what­ev­er he decides.

The state­ment came after a source in Sau­di Ara­bia told AFP news agency that Mes­si would join Al Hilal for €600m and that the deal was already done. How­ev­er, Messi’s rep­re­sen­ta­tives told Get­Foot­ball­News­France that this was not true and that no deal had been reached with the Sau­di club.

PSG did not com­ment on the Sau­di deal rumours, but con­firmed that Messi’s con­tract expires this sum­mer. Messi’s wife Antonel­la report­ed­ly does not want to move to Sau­di Ara­bia with their chil­dren, which could also be a fac­tor in his decision.
