On the 30th of last month, Messi, a public relations ambassador for the Saudi Tourism Authority, left for Saudi Arabia for his public relations ambassador activities. Prior to this, Messi requested permission to travel to the club for commercial shooting, etc., but PSG refused. Nevertheless, he was punished when he pushed ahead with Saudi Arabia.
Messi’s contract with PSG expires this summer. It is known that Saudi Arabia’s Al-Hilal offered Messi a large sum amid difficulties in renewing his contract.
