Messi’s 4 transfer options after insane world-record offer

Out of all four options, Al Hilal is by far the most lucrative. Messi has a world-record offer worth €400 million per year from the Saudi Arabian club. Barcelona want him back, but don’t have the finances to do a deal yet. Joining the MLS is another option. [Sport]
