Michael Emenalo, director of the Saudi Pro League, would love to see world champion Lionel Messi play in his own league. “If he decides to come here next season, we would be happy to welcome him.”Emenalo is quoted as saying by the Guardian. The former Chelsea director goes on to say: “The Saudi Pro League is open to any superstar who wants to come. If there’s an indication that there’s a vacancy and one of the superstars that you know and that I know says, ‘We’re interested in coming to this league,’ then we’re going to work very, very hard at it to bring them to us.”
Messi is still under contract with Inter Miami. The superstar’s contract with the MLS club from Florida is valid until the end of 2025. If he moved to Saudi Arabia, La Pulga would be an impressive 38 years old. Current rival Cristiano Ronaldo (38) is showing that it is possible to play an important role in Saudi Arabia at an advanced age as a footballer. After 20 appearances, CR7 has 18 hits and nine assists. Messi was also able to prove his quality at Miami with 16 goals in 14 games. However, the Beckham club clearly missed the playoffs as second to last in the table.
