Messi Agrees Massive Deal To Join Saudi Arabia Club, Chelsea In Pole Position To Sign Raphinha

According to El Chiringuito, Lionel Messi has agreed a massive contract to join Al-Hilal in Saudi Arabia.

In light of Barcelona's salary cap concerns, reports indicate that the Argentine will reunite with former Barça teammates Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba in the Middle East.

The 2022 FIFA World Cup winner has been willing to leave Paris after a tough season in the French capital.

Reports claim that Chelsea has taken the lead in the pursuit to sign Raphinha from Barcelona this summer.

Chelsea is currently taking the lead in the pursuit and hopes to begin formal negotiations 'immediately' before the summer transfer window opens.

The Brazilian has garnered interest from Newcastle and Arsenal after dazzling for Leeds United in the Premier League.

Raphinha is rumored to be up for sale this summer for £70 million as Barca tries to right the ship financially.

In principle, they agreed to sign the winger last summer, but he ultimately decided to join Barcelona instead.
