Neymar Joins Al-Hilal in $98 Million Deal:
Brazil forward Neymar has joined Saudi Arabian club Al-Hilal in a $98 million deal . The 31-year-old, who joined Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 for a world record fee of $222 million, signed a two-year contract with Al-Hilal.
Neymar scored 118 goals in 173 appearances for PSG, winning five Ligue 1 titles and two Coupe de France trophies. He also helped the club reach the Champions League final in 2020, but they lost to Bayern Munich.
Al-Hilal are the most successful club in Saudi Arabia and Asia, having won 66 trophies. They are also the current holders of the Asian Champions League title.
The club’s president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, said that Neymar was a “club legend” and that he would be missed. “We’ve had some extraordinary moments and Neymar will always be part of our history,” he said.
Al-Hilal are looking to strengthen their squad in order to compete for the Champions League title again. They also tried to sign Neymar’s former team mates Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi, but both players opted to move to other clubs.
The arrival of Neymar is a major coup for Al-Hilal and it will be interesting to see how he performs in the Saudi Professional League and the Asian Champions League.
However, Al-Hilal lost to Al Nasr 2-1 in the Arab Club Champions Cup final just days after Neymar’s signing.
This loss will be a wake-up call for Neymar and Al-Hilal, and they will need to quickly gel as a team if they want to compete for the Champions League title this season.
