Messi has been linked with a potential summer move to Saudi Arabia, while speculation about a possible return to Barcelona has also been talked about.

However, one club which Messi is highly unlikely to join is Saudi outfit Al-Tai. President of the club, Turki Al-Dabaan, took a shot at the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner in a recent interview with Saudi Arabian TV.

He told SBC: "I do not want to sign a world-class player in my team who is saturated and watches the match from the stadium like Messi in front of Bayern Munich."

Messi, who is now 35-years-old, showed his class during the international break as he scored four goals across two games against Panama and Curacao. The player will return to club action on Sunday as PSG look to close in on the Ligue 1 title against Lyon.
