I Thought About Moving To Saudi Arabia – Lionel Messi Reveals

 Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi, the world-famous Inter Miami superstar, has admitted he considered moving to Saudi Arabia.

If the 36-year-old had made the move, he would have joined Cristiano Ronaldo in the Saudi Pro League.

But Messi eventually decided to sign for the Major League Soccer side as a free agent in the summer after leaving Paris Saint-Germain.

Messi has now revealed he had the option of returning to Barcelona or signing for a Saudi Arabian side.

“My first option was to return to Barcelona, but it was not possible. I tried to return, and it did not happen.

“It is also true that later I was thinking a lot about going to the Saudi league, where I know the country and they have created a very powerful competition that can become an important league in the near future.

“It was Saudi Arabia or MLS, and both options seemed very interesting to me,” Messi told Time.
