Barcelona are hoping to sign Lionel Messi on loan in the January transfer window from Inter Miami.
However, the Catalan giant has financial difficulties to realize this desire and the Arabs are ready to take advantage.
Despite the fact that Messi rejected a hefty offer of 400 million euros per season from Al-Hilal in the summer, Arab clubs continue to dream of having Messi in their ranks.
Sky Sport reporter Rudy Galetti has reported that the Public Investment Fund in Saudi Arabia is ready to grant Messi any wish they have, if only as a loan of the Argentinian genius in their championship.
MLS will end soon and after Inter Miami failed to secure participation in the ‘Play-Off’, Messi will be free until March.
Thus, clubs interested in the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner are thinking of convincing him to take him on a six-month loan.
Barcelona remains the main favorite, but the Argentine team Newell’s Old Boys is also in the race.
However, both the Catalan giant and the Argentinian one should be careful, as the Arabs are doing their best to have Messi in their championship after signing Cristiano Ronaldo.
