• PSG Star Neymar Has Signed a Two-Year Deal With Saudi Side Al Hilal

Al Hilal have announced the signing of Brazilian star Neymar from PSG on a two-year deal. The Saudi side confirmed the transfer today, bringing an end to Neymar’s 6-year stay in Paris.

Neymar joins a host of big names that have also swapped Europe for the riches and new challenge of Saudi Pro League. PSG manager Luis Enrique deemed 31-year-old Neymar surplus to requirement, and that allowed the club to cash in on him. The Paris side spent a world record €222m on Neymar back in 2017, and with this transfer, they have been able to recoup €90m to help with financial fair play regulations.

PSG signed Neymar to help win the UEFA Champions League, a quest that he and PSG have failed spectacularly at, with their best performance coming in 2020 when they lost 1-0 to Bayern Munich in the final.

Neymar will earn €275m over the course of two years, his earnings could also rise to €370m based on commercial deals with the club.
