In a real shocker for football fans, it seems like Neymar, the famous Brazilian soccer star, is getting ready to move to a new team – Al Hilal in the Saudi Pro League. This news comes from a report by the BBC, a trusted source for sports news.
The deal between Neymar’s current team, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), and Al Hilal seems to be all set. This is a big deal because it could change the whole football world.
Guess what? The price for Neymar’s move is really huge – around 90 million euros ($98.56 million) plus some extra stuff. That’s a lot of money, even for someone as amazing as Neymar.
Neymar became famous when he moved to PSG from Barcelona in 2017. The transfer fee, which is how much money PSG paid Barcelona for Neymar, was a huge 222 million euros ($243 million). Now, he’s maybe leaving PSG and starting a new adventure.
Neymar didn’t play in PSG’s first game of the Ligue 1 season because he was sick with a viral infection. So, this news about him moving is surprising for many fans.
Before, Neymar was going to stay with PSG until 2025. He’s scored 118 goals in 173 games for them and won lots of trophies, including five Ligue 1 championships.
Al Hilal, the Saudi team, wanted to sign Kylian Mbappe, Neymar’s teammate at PSG. They also tried to get Lionel Messi, who chose to join a team in the United States. But now, it looks like they’re getting Neymar.
Al Hilal is really successful in Saudi Arabia and Asia. They’ve won a huge 66 trophies, and they’re known for being champs in the league and the Asian Champions League, with 18 and four titles.
Al Hilal wants to make their team stronger, and they’ve got a big plan for that. The Saudi Public Investment Fund said they’re investing in sports clubs like Al Hilal, Al Ittihad, Al Ahli, and Al Nassr. They want to make these clubs even better.
So, if Neymar joins Al Hilal, it could change things a lot. The football world is waiting to see what will happen next. We don’t know all the details yet, but one thing’s for sure – Neymar’s move is a big deal that could make history.
