“Neymar Shatters Transfer Records with €90m Move to Al-Hilal in Saudi Club Stunner as Neymar Becomes the Most Expensive Footballer.
In a groundbreaking transfer, Neymar has sealed a remarkable €90 million deal with Saudi’s Al-Hilal, etching his name as the costliest footballer in history.
The cumulative sum of Neymar’s transfer fees, spanning his journeys from Santos to Barcelona, Barcelona to PSG, and now PSG to Al-Hilal, reaches an astonishing €369 million, surpassing the €328 million career total of Romelu Lukaku.
Notably, PSG’s €222 million splurge to acquire Neymar from Barcelona in 2017 still reigns as the highest-ever sum spent on a player. Al-Hilal’s pursuit of Lionel Messi earlier in the summer proved futile as the Argentine opted for Inter Miami instead.
While Barcelona showed interest in a reunion with Neymar, financial constraints reportedly curbed the deal’s feasibility for the Blaugrana.
After enjoying two seasons with a star-studded front trio comprising Neymar, Messi, and Kylian Mbappé, PSG has seen two of these three luminaries exit the club this summer.
Neymar leaves the Ligue 1 champions after delivering 118 goals and 77 assists in 173 appearances for the team. The Brazilian icon, also his nation’s highest goal scorer, emerges as the Saudi Pro League’s most significant acquisition since Cristiano Ronaldo’s January move.
Joining forces with Sergej Milinković-Savić, Kalidou Koulibaly, and Rúben Neves, who orchestrated substantial moves from Europe. Neymar is set to redefine Al-Hilal’s ambitions on the global stage.”
