Will the ‘Meho War’ from Saudi Arabia come true?
Specific reports have emerged that Saudi Arabia is targeting Lionel Messi (Paris Saint-Germain) following Cristiano Ronaldo (Al-Nasr).
On the 15th (Korean time), the Daily Mail, a British daily, made a headline saying, ‘Saudi Arabia Al-Hilal prepared an astronomical amount of £194 million (approximately 308.3 billion won) for one season to recruit Messi’.
Recently, observations have flowed out that Messi’s father and agent Jorge may have been negotiating over his son’s transfer shortly after he was spotted in Riyadh. Messi’s contract with PSG expires this summer, and if there is no contract extension by then, Messi will become a free agent. Spain’s leading media Marca also reported that Al-Hilal had prepared an astronomical amount for Messi’s recruitment. 먹튀검증
With Ronaldo, the ‘life rival’, wearing the Al Nasr uniform for a transfer fee of 175 million pounds (approximately 280 billion won) in December of last year, the Saudi Arabian league will use oil money to complete the ‘Middle East Meho War’ with Messi. He embarked on an ambitious plan.
As even Saudi politicians stepped up to raise the annual salary cap in the pro league for Messi’s trip to Saudi Arabia, there is even a story that Saudi Arabia is serious about making a big deal.
There was strong observation that Messi would renew his contract with PSG early this year right after Argentina won the World Cup in Qatar last year, but the negotiations did not progress properly, and no one can guarantee whether Messi will remain at PSG or not. In addition, as PSG was eliminated from the European Champions League early this season, there are predictions that Messi will consider renewing his contract.
With Ronaldo’s trip to Saudi Arabia, there has been talk of whether the ‘Meho War’ in football history is virtually over, but if Al-Hilal succeeds in recruiting Messi, the Middle East’s ‘Meho War’ may continue for a while. Ronaldo has been very active this season with Al Nasr, scoring 8 goals in 7 league games.
