Neymar joins Al Hilal for two years

Neymar joined the list of players signing in Saudi Arabia as he agreed to join Al Hilal for two years, despite on-going season for PSG. According to reports, this transfer’s worth is around £69m to PSG, and Neymar will earn a whopping £275million in Saudi. Before this confirmation, Neymar is already linked to his possible return to Barcelona, making this transfer somehow a surprise. However, he rejected the possibility of returning to Barcelona, which includes an option to buy him next year. In fact, Neymar‘s contract with PSG stands until 2027, but he already joined the list of players joining Saudi Arabia. Reports says that Neymar is already undergoing medical, and will be with Al Hilal for two years with no option to extend.

Neymar first joined PSG in 2017, where he set a world record of a £198m deal, from Barcelona, and he had a colorful career there. In fact, for his 173 matches he played with PSG, he was able to score 118 goals, helping his team to win. Additionally, he also had five titles in Ligue 1, and three for Coupe de France. These records are proof how huge Neymar’s impact is for PSG, so his departure will surely have an impact on them. Last season, Neymar was only able to score 18 times for the club, as he underwent an ankle surgery. This injury have ruled him out for the remainder of the season, failing to provide contribution for his squad.

Neymar is now ready to take a new challenge is he will not join a new squad in a new region, which will be challenging for him. During the opener of PSG against Lorient during the weekend, it seems like PSG no longer have plans for him. In fact, he was left out of their squad in that match, saying he was recovering from a viral infection. However, Neymar is now on his way to exit PSG, as he aims to bring the same glory for Al Hilal.
