Neymar Agrees to Shock Departure from PSG, Moves to Al-Hilal in Saudi Pro League

In a twist, Paris Saint-Germain’s star forward Neymar has reached an agreement to leave the club, signaling a remarkable shift in the future of the Brazilian attacker. The move is set to take him to Al-Hilal of the Saudi Pro League, according to reports. Neymar, 31, was anticipated to lead PSG’s charge in the Champions League this season, especially after the departure of Lionel Messi and the sidelining of Kylian Mbappe. However, the narrative has taken an unexpected turn, as Neymar looks set to join forces with Cristiano Ronaldo in the Gulf.

Renowned football transfer expert Fabrizio Romano shared the development on Twitter, stating that Al Hilal is in the process of preparing formal documents for the transfer, which are expected to be reviewed on Monday. Romano indicated that Neymar has already given his approval for the move, and a two-year contract is in the works. Medical tests have reportedly been scheduled, awaiting Neymar’s final consent.

This turn of events comes as a blow to Barcelona, who had reportedly been keen on reacquiring Neymar as a replacement for Ousmane Dembele, who recently moved to PSG. Dembele’s transfer was activated after the French club triggered a €50 million release clause.

According to L’Equipe, Neymar is poised to leave for Al-Hilal for a fee slightly below €90 million, bringing his tenure at PSG to a close. The Saudi Pro League outfit is said to be on the verge of sealing the deal, which would bring an end to Neymar’s stint at PSG that began with a world-record transfer fee of €222 million.

Reports also suggest that Neymar’s wages at Al-Hilal will surpass those of Cristiano Ronaldo. While exact figures have not been confirmed, sources indicate that Neymar’s total earnings could exceed Ronaldo’s salary and sponsorship deals at Al-Nassr.

Currently earning an estimated €30 million per year after taxes at PSG, Neymar’s move to Al-Hilal will not only reshape his career trajectory but also set the stage for his potential return to Europe in the coming years. The striker reportedly aspires to reunite with a European club, hinting that a reunion with Barcelona might not be off the table, but only postponed.
