According to The Mirror, the Saudi Arabian government are eager for both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to join their domestic league.
Ronaldo is currently a free agent after his Manchester United contract was cancelled this week while Messi is in the final year of his PSG contract.
Messi is an ambassador for the Saudi Arabian tourist board, therefore links surrounding a move are not surprising.
Saudi Arabian Sports minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al-Faisal recently opened up on plans to capture Ronaldo’s signature.
“Who wouldn’t want him to play in their league?” Prince Abdulaziz told Sky News. “He’s a role model to a lot of young players – him and Messi.”
When quizzed on Messi’s advertising deal with Saudi Arabia he said: “That’s benefited a lot in terms of tourism for the kingdom. If they can, I’d love to see them both play in the Saudi league.”
