Is Neymar Joining Saudi Pro League?

Neymar reportedly leaving PSG; considers Saudi Arabia offer on Sunday.

According to the insider, Neymar was in negotiations with a Saudi Pro League team that was flush with cash and “will then have to reach an agreement with PSG.”

The Brazilian international moved from Barcelona to the French champions in 2017 for a record 220 million euros ($241m).

The source did note that the 31-year-old forward “no longer figures in the club or manager’s plans” because he was absent from PSG’s season-opening game on Saturday.

The Brazilian striker missed the goalless draw with Lorient due to a “viral syndrome,” according to the official explanation.

The club that has made the offer for the 31-year-old is Al-Hilal, according to the French sports daily L’Equipe.

Kylian Mbappe of PSG was the target of an offer from Al-Hilal last month worth 300 million euros ($328 million), but the striker reportedly declined to meet with club representatives.

After having surgery on his right ankle in early March, Neymar joined PSG in Asia for their preseason trip.

Qatari-backed With Lionel Messi leaving PSG and French superstar Mbappe watching Saturday’s match from the sidelines after being sidelined for several weeks due to an ongoing contract dispute, the club is in a state of turmoil.

The absence of Neymar from the match at Parc des Princes was noticeably noticeable. He has suffered numerous injuries during his tenure at PSG.

Even though he assisted the team in reaching the 2020 Champions League final, he frequently missed important matches due to injury.

If Neymar does decide to relocate to Saudi Arabia, he will join an expanding list of elite athletes drawn to the oil-rich nation after Cristiano Ronaldo switched to Al-Nassr in January.
