Neymar Nears Move to Saudi Pro League Side Al Hilal, PSG and Al Hilal Close to Agreeing on €80 Million Transfer Fee
Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar is edging closer to a move to Saudi Pro League side, Al Hilal, according to reliable sources. Negotiations between PSG and Al Hilal have been progressing smoothly, and the clubs are reportedly close to reaching an agreement on a transfer fee of €80 million ($88 million).
The Brazilian star left fans in disbelief when he was omitted from PSG’s squad for their opening Ligue 1 fixture, fueling speculation about his potential move. Despite earlier rumors of a return to Barcelona, it seems that Neymar’s future lies in Saudi Arabia.
Reports suggest that Neymar is expected to sign a lucrative two-year deal worth a mind-boggling €100 million per year with Al Hilal. This proposed deal would undeniably make Neymar one of the highest-earning footballers in the world.
While Barcelona has been mentioned as a possible destination for the 29-year-old sensation, there is currently a debate within the Catalan club about Neymar’s possible signing. Notably, coach Xavi Hernandez and others at Barcelona have voiced concerns over Neymar’s compatibility with the team’s current setup.
Meanwhile, PSG appears to be open to letting Neymar go, particularly after securing the services of Ousmane Dembélé from Barcelona. Despite his hefty price tag, Neymar has made a significant impact during his stint at PSG. He helped the French side win five consecutive Ligue 1 titles and nearly guided them to victory in the 2020 Champions League final.
If the deal with Al Hilal is finalized, Neymar’s move to the Saudi Pro League would mark a new chapter in his illustrious career. As he leaves behind his Parisian exploits, football fans around the world are keenly awaiting official confirmation of this high-profile transfer.
