Qatar 2022: Messi offered $1m for World Cup Bisht

Argentina captain, Lionel Messi has been offered $1 million by a member of Oman’s parliament for the bisht he wore when lifting the 2022 World Cup trophy.

Messi helped his country win the title in Qatar 2022 after beating France in a penalty shoot-out.

A lawyer and member of parliament in Oman, Ahmed Al Barwani, has now presented the 35-year-old with an offer that he hopes will see the famous garment remain in the Middle East.

“From the Sultanate of Oman I congratulate you for winning the World Cup Qatar 2022 … the Arabic bisht, a symbol of chivalry and wisdom.

“I’m offering you $1 million in return for that bisht,” Al Barwani said in a Twitter post.

Messi is currently spending the Christmas break with his family in Buenos Aires.
