Brazilian sensation Neymar Jr has agreed to a deal with Saudi Arabian giants Al Hilal from PSG for £86.3 million.
Many big names have been going to Saudi Arabia football clubs. Recently, Al Nassr signed Sadio Mane from Bayern Munich and Al Ahli signed Firmino from Liverpool.
Riyad Mahrez also left for Al-Ahli, after Manchester City agreed on a deal worth up to £30m for the Algeria winger, who had two years remaining on his contract.
Neymar is undergoing his medical today and is expected to complete the move within the next 48 hours.
According to legitimate reports, Neymar will take home €150m (£129.2m) a year in Saudi Arabia, six times the amount he earned at PSG.
PSG has lost their generational strikers, Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Neymar Jr. Argentinian forward Messi opted to join Inter Miami, while French player Mbappe is set to stay at PSG despite tensions over his contract.
Speaking on high-profile players moving to Saudi Arabia, Guardiola had this to say.
“Many things happened unexpectedly. Just a few months ago, a year ago, when Cristiano (Ronaldo) was the only one to go, no one could imagine the amount of top, top players, quality, extraordinary players (who are) going to play in the Saudi league.”
“I think in the near future it’s going to happen more and more.”
