It has been made public which team Lionel Messi will play for in the upcoming season.
The 35-year-old is aiming to get back to Barcelona.
According to El Nacional, Messi wants to come home to Camp Nou, but he has set some requirements for club president Joan Laporta before that can happen.
The Argentine is planning to reject a staggering offer of €300 million a season from
Al-Hilal is a club in Saudi Arabia. If he accepted the offer, Messi would become the highest-paid football player in the world, but he would rather go back to Spain.
Messi wants to be the center of the club and wants a competitive football project that gives him a chance to win trophies at his old team.
The World Cup champion from Argentina has also let the Spanish team know that he will return as the club’s attacking leader and the proud keeper of the legendary number 10.
Contrary to popular belief, Messi won’t be lacing up his boots for a pittance, as the 35-year-old is adamant that his pay should be commensurate with his position in the locker room.
El Nacional reports that he has made it quite plain that he will not tolerate any teammate getting more money than him and that he wants to be the highest-paid player at Camp Nou.
