PSG star Lionel Messi is undoubtedly the biggest soccer star in the world. He has recently been in the news not just for winning the World Cup but also for being suspended by PSG. The star will no longer be at the club after it came to light that he took an unsanctioned trip to Saudi Arabia, where he is rumored to have received a mega offer from Al-Hilal.
During a recent interview, WWE Superstar Montez Ford was asked about his knowledge of soccer. He stated that he is a huge fan of Kylian Mbappe and follows the sport regularly. He stated that Lionel Messi should consider signing the deal, which reportedly amounts to $440 million. The Street Profits star stated that Messi’s arrival in Saudi Arabia will elevate the sport in the country.
“I’m a huge fan of the sport, by the way. I love Mbappe. I am a fan of Kylian Mbappe. But one of the most wonderful things that can happen is to turn dreams into reality. I know this place is a wonderful environment for success, and the arrival of [Lionel] Messi would be great too,” Ford said (h/t via Essentially Sports).
The former tag team champion was recently drafted to SmackDown alongside Angelo Dawkins. The duo is one of the most formidable tag teams in the world and have carved quite a legacy for themselves. On the latest episode of the blue brand, Ford lost a Money in the Bank qualifier match against LA Knight. Fans have been clamoring for him to have a run as a singles star, and it remains to be seen whether that will come to fruition anytime soon.
Is Lionel Messi leaving PSG for Al-Hilal in Saudi Arabia?
Lionel Messi has been at the center of attention for a while now. He recently lifted the FIFA World Cup for Argentina in what was a historic moment. However, the soccer maestro’s club career has not been so fruitful. For the second consecutive season, Messi and PSG bowed out of the UEFA Champions League in the quarterfinal stage. This is bound to make the PSG hierarchy unhappy, as Lionel Messi was brought in to elevate the French club’s chances of winning the trophy.

The PSG fans have also been raising their voices when it comes to Lionel Messi, as he leaves the club with his destination unknown to fans. Amidst rumors surrounding the Ballon d’Or winner, Al-Hilal seems to have emerged as an unlikely option. At 35, the end of his career is nearing, and he could follow in the footsteps of his rival Cristiano Ronaldo by moving to Saudi Arabia. It remains to be seen where Messi will play his soccer next season.
