Afghan Voice Agency (AVA): With Lionel Messi's contract with Paris Saint-Germain approaching at the end of this month, it was expected that this 35-year-old Argentinian player will go to Saudi Arabia, where two world-famous footballers, Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema have joined already.
Lionel Messi officially announced his decision in an interview with Mundo Deportivo. Messi said: "I will join Inter Miami and this decision is 100% confirmed. If it was a question of money, I would go to Saudi Arabia or other places, which I think is a lot of money. The truth is that the reason for my decision is something else and not because of money.
According to some reports, Al-Hilal football club offered Messi an annual income of 400 million dollars.
But the PA news agency says that the option of transferring Messi to the Middle East is no longer on the table and he is moving to Inter Miami, and it is said that an agreement has been reached.
Inter Miami is one of the American Football League clubs based in Miami. One of the owners of this club is David Beckham, a former football star of the England national team.
