Lionel Messi, Barcelona, 2020/21

On the day that Marca reports that Saudi Arabian side Al-Hilal are set to make an astronomical offer for Lionel Messi, Gerard Romero reports that the Argentine is preparing his house in Barcelona for a return there.

On Wednesday, Marca reported that the World Cup winner is on his way to Saudi Arabia - thanks to the country's government.

It was reported that Al-Hilal are preparing a massive $400 million-per-year offer.

Al-Hilal would be supported in their bid to bring Messi to the Pro League by the Saudi Ministry of Sports, and the government would even consider changing its salary laws to accommodate him.

However, Gerard Romero is reporting that a return to Barcelona is likelier this summer.

Romero says that Messi has had his house in Castelldefels prepared to live in again ahead of a return to Barcelona.

He adds that Barcelona are working on bringing Messi back - and that they are Leo’s preferred destination.
