According to information from reporter Fabrizio Romano, known for his expertise in the field of sports transfers, Neymar is on the verge of adopting the number 10 jersey while representing Al-Hilal. The renowned Brazilian player will undergo medical assessments to finalize his contract with the club based in Saudi Arabia, as previously reported by the sports portal ‘ge’.
Al-Hilal, the Saudi Arabian club, has agreed to pay the talented player a sum of €320 million (equivalent to R$1.7 billion) over the agreed period. Neymar is close to signing a contract valid for two seasons. According to information obtained by the ‘ge’ sports portal from the player’s support team, his presentation to the new team is scheduled for the next Wednesday.
On Sunday morning, Al-Hilal and Neymar reached an agreement. Subsequently, the Saudi club finalized the deal with PSG, which demanded at least €100 million (approximately R$540 million). The French team is expected to receive this amount, including bonuses and variable clauses.
Al-Hilal is about to accomplish the largest transfer ever made by a non-European team to date. As the most renowned club in Saudi Arabia, they have planned a grand event for Wednesday, aiming to present Neymar.
The club has already made notable signings, including Rúben Neves, former Wolverhampton player, for an amount of €55 million, Koulibaly, who was previously with Chelsea, for €23 million, Milinkovic-Savic, former Lazio player, for €40 million, and Malcom, who previously played for Zenit, for €60 million.
