Al-Hilal are set to offer Lionel Messi a mouth-watering contract worth up to £288million-a-year.
The 35-year-old has just under six months left on his current deal at Paris Saint-Germain and could be set to leave the Ligue 1 side this summer.
Messi has scored an impressive 13 goals and chipped in with 14 assists in 20 appearances for PSG this season, having also scored seven times at the World Cup in Qatar.
It is understood Inter Miami are strongly interested in the former Barcelona man, with David Beckham eyeing up a move to take him across to the MLS.
The ex-Manchester United midfielder has long touted the prospect of a superstar like Messi joining his MLS franchise, while Messi himself has admitted he would be keen to play in the US before his career comes to an end.
However, according to Mundo Deportivo, Saudi Arabian giants Al-Hilal are plotting a mega-money deal for Messi after Saudi Pro League rivals Al-Nassr completed the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo last month.
The reported sum would see Messi overtake Ronaldo as the highest-paid player in the world.
Ronaldo signed a contract worth £173m-a-year at Al-Nassr on December 30 after his controversial exit from United, where he slammed the club, the Glazers and manager Erik ten Hag.
The 37-year-old has battled it out with Messi for both individual and team honours over the past two decades and that could now continue in the Middle East.
