Neymar completes transfer from PSG to Saudi club Al Hilal

(Qnnflash) – Brazilian football star Neymar has completed a transfer from French champions Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) to Saudi Arabian club Al Hilal, as confirmed by both clubs on Tuesday.

Neymar, who is also Brazil’s joint all-time top scorer, was reportedly close to agreeing to personal terms with Al Hilal after the clubs reached a transfer fee agreement of €90 million ($98.6 million), according to ESPN’s report on Sunday.

Expressing his motivation for the move, Neymar stated, “I have achieved a lot in Europe and enjoyed special times, but I have always wanted to be a global player and test myself with new challenges and opportunities in new places.” He emphasized his aspiration to make history and contribute to the Saudi Pro League, which he acknowledged as having a strong talent pool.

Joining him at Al Hilal are new teammates Kalidou Koulibaly, Rúben Neves, and Sergej Milinković-Savić, who all transferred to the club earlier in the summer. The club is part of Saudi Arabia’s “Sports Clubs Investment and Privatization Project,” which aims to enhance the country’s presence in international football.

Neymar’s two-year contract is reported to come with an expected annual salary of around $100 million, positioning him as a marquee player in the Saudi Pro League. Al Hilal’s chairman, Fahad bin Saad bin Nafel, expressed excitement about Neymar’s addition, referring to him as a global icon who brings joy to fans worldwide.

Neymar’s departure from PSG comes after a successful tenure that saw him score 118 goals in 173 appearances and win multiple Ligue 1 titles. However, his time at the club was marked by the failure to secure a UEFA Champions League title, which contributed to tensions between him and fans. PSG president and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaïfi acknowledged Neymar’s impact on the club’s history and wished him well in his future endeavors.

Neymar’s move to Al Hilal reflects his desire for new challenges and opportunities in different football environments. As he embarks on this new chapter, he aims to contribute to Al Hilal’s success and make his mark on the Saudi Pro League.
