Lionel Messi has cleared that he will join the Saudi Arabia club as the PSG forward wants to continue playing in Europe.
The World Cup winner is out of contract with Paris Saint-Germain in the summer and his future has been widely discussed over the last few weeks.
The 35-year-old is likely to stay in Paris for one more year. There is no possibility of seeing any return to Barcelona.
According to Sport, PSG are finalising the details of a second offer to Messi to extend his contract as the 35-year-old forward has ruled out a move to a lower-quality league such as a move to Saudi Arabia.
Qatar are desperate to keep the World Cup winner in Paris and wants him to be a key part of next season’s project.
PSG is once again a bit of a mess after facing elimination in the Champions League by Bayern Munich and overall the team has not been playing well.
Barcelona also wants Messi to return to Camp Nou but will need to get their financial house in order to make it happen.
