WHAT TRANSPIRED? Galtier has confirmed Messi’s departure from PSG as his contract reaches its conclusion, amidst an enticing proposal from Saudi Arabia that would reignite his rivalry with Cristiano Ronaldo.

WHAT THEY STATED: Galtier shared his thoughts on Messi’s departure, expressing, “I had the honor of coaching the greatest player in the history of football. It will mark Leo’s final game at the Parc des Princes against Clermont [on June 3].”

THE BROADER PICTURE: Messi has been in exceptional form this season, contributing 16 goals and 16 assists in Ligue 1. However, he is now ready to embrace a fresh endeavor. The most probable destination for the World Cup champion seems to be Saudi Arabia, given his previous unofficial visit to the country, which led to his suspension by the club. Additionally, the president of the Saudi FA has publicly confirmed the country’s interest.
