Lionel Messi will reportedly receive an offer that could make him the highest-paid player in football.

The Argentine's future continues to remain a hot topic as his contract with the French club is expiring in June. 

It has been claimed that there are a number of interested clubs including Al Ittihad, Al Hilal, Barcelona and Inter Miami.

Reports have suggested the first two sides will make lucrative offers to convince the forward to consider a move.

Marca are now reporting that Al Hilal want to offer him €220 million (R4.2 billion) a season to convince the Argentine to make the switch

Multiple outlets have cited Cristiano Ronaldo’s record-breaking salary with Al Nassr at around €188 million (R3.6 billion) a yea, with commercial agreements included.

However, Messi's proposed offer would take him ahead of the Portuguese forward as football's highest-paid of all-time if he were to accept.

The country's politicians are reportedly willing to change salary cap laws in order for Al Hilal to bring Messi to the Middle East. 

With Barca needing to get millions from their wage bill after LaLiga president Javier Tebas ordered so, it remains unlikely if the Spanish club can raise the funds they would need to sign the South American.
