Lionel Messi would be welcome in Saudi Arabian football, according to former Manchester United and current Al Hilal forward Odion Ighalo.
Messi has been linked with a move to the Gulf State, with the general secretary of the Saudi Football Federation revealing it is a dream to have the Argentine star alongside Cristiano Ronaldo in its top league.
“Of course, Messi is welcome here. I hope very soon it becomes a reality,” Ighalo told Nigerian media.
“It’s the beautiful dream of every player in the world to play with Messi. He is one of the best on planet. If it happens to see the light of day, it would be a great honour and wonderful opportunity to grace the same pitch with such an amazing legend.
“He is a special player with special qualities. His presence will make me a better player and score many more goals for Al Hilal, he will help us win more trophies and develop the game in this country.
“It will be a fantastic feeling and I am really looking forward to playing next to him. Let’s wait and see how it goes.”
