Report: Neymar agrees to join Saudi Arabia’s Al Hilal in €100m deal

NEYMAR is the latest superstar from one of Europe’s big leagues to leave for Saudi Arabia as he is set to join Al Hilal, according to reports.

The Brazil forward has agreed to team up with the Saudi Arabia Pro League club after being offered an undisclosed amount, believed to be ‘huge’.

Al Hilal, Saudi Arabia’s biggest and most successful club, will pay Paris Saint-Germain a transfer fee of around €100m and Neymar will sign a two-year contract.

He will have his medical tests today in Europe and is expected to travel down to Saudi Arabia this week to complete the switch.

Neymar, 31, joined PSG for €220m (which is still the world record transfer fee) in August 2017 from Barcelona and has made 173 appearances for the French giants, registering 118 goals and 77 assists.

He will be another big name in the Saudi Arabia Pro League, following the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Sadio Mane and Kalidou Koulibaly.
