Messi Rejected €1.4 Billion Offer from Saudi Arabian Club Due to his Family

Lionel Messi turned down a significant offer from Al-Hilal, a club in the Saudi Pro League, to join Inter Miami, as revealed by Al-Hilal’s president, Anmar Al Haili.

After his contract with Paris Saint-Germain ended in June 2023, Messi had several clubs interested in signing him, including rumors of a return to Barcelona. Despite these options, he opted to continue his football journey in Major League Soccer (MLS).

According to Al Haili, Al-Hilal made a staggering offer of €1.4 billion to Messi, but he declined because his family preferred a move to America. Al Haili respected Messi’s decision, recognizing that family considerations were more important to him than the financial aspect.

Messi’s choice to join Inter Miami reflects his desire to experience a new challenge in the MLS and continue competing at a high level in a different football environment.

The decision marked a significant moment in Messi’s career as he embarked on a new chapter in American soccer, aiming to leave a lasting impact both on and off the field.
