Neymar to Al Hilal: PSG Agree €90m Deal for Brazilian Superstar

Al Hilal, a prominent club in the Saudi Pro League, has inked a whopping €90 million ($98.6m) deal with Paris Saint-Germain, securing Neymar for the next leg of his football journey, as confirmed by ESPN.

After much speculation over the weekend, it appears that Neymar is all set to join Al Hilal. Discussions around personal terms are said to be in the advanced stages. If all goes well, fans will see the Brazilian sensation don the Al Hilal jersey for at least two years, with a potential extension for a third.

Neymar’s entry is just the cherry on top for Al Hilal, which has been on a shopping spree this summer. The team recently welcomed football giants such as Kalidou Koulibaly, Rúben Neves, and Sergej Milinković-Savić.

The shift in the Saudi Pro League’s dynamics is evident. This sudden influx of star power isn’t by chance. Al Hilal, along with Al Nassr, Al Ahli, and Al Ittihad, recently became a part of Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund, thanks to the country’s ambitious “Sports Clubs Investment and Privatization Project.” This initiative has spurred Saudi clubs to chase the game’s big names, offering tempting contracts that are hard to resist.

Let’s throw it back to 2017 for a moment – Neymar made headlines by becoming the priciest footballer ever. Paris Saint-Germain pulled off a jaw-dropping €222m deal, whisking him away from Barcelona. Fast forward to today, and the end of Neymar’s era at PSG is marked not just by his stellar performance, with five Ligue 1 titles and 13 other domestic trophies, but also by a roller-coaster of injuries and controversies.

However, all eyes are now on the Saudi Pro League, as football enthusiasts around the world wait to see how this bold move pans out for Neymar and Al Hilal.
