Superstar Neymar (Brazil), who has parted ways with French professional soccer giants Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), is expected to find a new home with Saudi Arabian “rich club” Al-Hilal.
Transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano wrote on social media on Thursday (June 14), “Al-Hilal is preparing official documents to finalize the signing of Neymar. Neymar has already decided to move and will sign a two-year contract.” “Alhilal has also scheduled medical tests. We are waiting for the final approval from Neymar’s side.”
France’s L’Equipe also reported that “Neymar has agreed in principle to a two-year contract with Alhilal. He will receive a total of 160 million euros ($233.1 million) in salary over the two years. PSG and Al-Hilal are discussing a transfer fee for Neymar of around €90 million.”
French journalist Fabrice Hawkins of RMC Sport also reported on social media, “The transfer fee is €90 million plus bonuses and the contract is for two years with an option to extend for one year. This marks Neymar’s departure from PSG after six seasons.”
Neymar, who joined PSG in 2017 for a staggering €222 million, has been one of the club’s key strikers over the past six seasons, scoring 118 goals in 173 official games.
Neymar was recently linked with a move to FC Barcelona (Spain) after reports surfaced that he had informed PSG of his desire to return to the club, and he missed the French Ligue 1’s official photo shoot and team training, ultimately missing the season opener.
With PSG labeling Neymar as a free agent, Saudi Arabian giants Al-Hilal stepped in to sign him for a hefty transfer fee and wages.
Al-Hilal have already made a number of European signings ahead of the start of the season, including Neymar, Kalidou Koulibaly, 먹튀검증토토사이트 and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
