is keen to stay in Europe, despite receiving an offer from Saudi Arabian club Al Hilal worth an eye-watering £350m-a-year.

The Argentine’s future at Paris Saint-Germain is up in the air, with Messi’s current deal set to expire at the end of the season.

Messi had intimated that he was happy to stay in the French capital after returning to Paris following Argentina’s victory in .

But things have soured since, with supporters jeering Messi during a home defeat to Lyon on the weekend following reports that he was keen on returning to Barcelona.

While Barcelona would love to re-sign the Argentine, they are walking a Financial Fair Play tightrope and Messi’s return could throw the club back into chaos.

That leaves the Argentine with few options as there are only a small selection of clubs that could meet his wage demands.

Cristiano Ronaldo left Europe for Al Nassr in January, signing an astonishing £177m-a-year deal to make him the best paid player in the world.

But Al Hilal, Al Nassr’s rivals, are willing to almost double that offer for Messi by handing the Argentine a £350m-a-year deal.

That would see Messi earning close to £1m-a-day in the middle-east.

But Fabrizio Romano says the playmaker is keen on staying in Europe and will shun the offer.

This is because he wants to maintain a high standard ahead of the Copa America in 2024 and he still has aspirations of playing in the 2026 World Cup.
