Ighalo’s contract with the Riyadh club will not be renewed when it runs out on June 30 to fuel more speculations that Al Hilal plan to sign Lionel Messi.
Al Hilal are reported to be prepared to fork out a record 400 Million Pounds to sign the Argentina captain.
PSG have already announced the departure of Messi.
Ighalo helped Al Hilal win the Saudi league crown last year, when he finished as the league’s top scorer with 20 goals.
The former Manchester United striker is expected to take his shooting boots to another club in the Gulf.
