PSG Forward Neymar is Reportedly Moving to Saudi’s Al Hilal on a Two-Year Deal


Paris Saint-German player Neymar has reportedly signed a two-year contract with Saudi football club Al Hilal. The transfer now rests on the Brazilian forward completing all paperwork and passing his medical.

On Sunday, a leading sports daily in France reported that the 31-year-old will be receiving a total of 160 million euros over two seasons. Sources close to PSG told Sky Sports that the French club will be receiving £86.3 million for the player that once cost them a record-setting £200 million when they bought him from Barcelona in 2017.

The transfer news comes at a time when the PSG head coach is seemingly focused on building a younger team. Older players such as Neymar do not seem to be a priority for Luis Enrique as the club shifts away from its penchant for signing high-profile players for huge fees in the past. The former Barcelona players only resumed training recently after undergoing surgery in March.

If completed, this move will be part of a major summer spending spree by Saudi clubs as the Kingdom continues to develop its football league. Players such as Karim Benzema, N’Golo Kante, Jordan Henderson, Ruben Neves, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino are already moving to Saudi Arabia to join Cristiano Ronaldo who joined Al Nassr in January.
