Neymar is on the verge of leaving Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).

European transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano said on Thursday (July 14) on his personal social media account, “The deal between Al Hilal and Neymar is close to completion. There are still some things to be finalized and the documents will be ready soon. Al Hilal wants the deal to be finalized within 24 hours.”

French outlet L’Equipe added: “Neymar will undergo a medical. Al-Hilal has offered Neymar a two-year contract and will pay him €160 million over two years,” the French outlet reported.

PSG has been noisy this summer with player departures. Kylian Mbappe’s announcement that he would not be re-signing with PSG was the catastrophe. PSG said they would sell Mbappe unconditionally this summer. However, it looks like it’s going to end badly. Mbappe recently returned to first-team training. Mbappe reportedly wants to sign a one-year contract extension with PSG.

Just as Mbappe’s departure was being finalized, Neymar left the team. Suddenly, Neymar asked PSG for a transfer. Neymar’s first choice was Barcelona.

Neymar’s stock rose after winning the treble with Barcelona. PSG spent €220 million ($319.5 billion) to bring Neymar to the club. It was the most expensive transfer in soccer history. Having paid so much for Neymar, PSG is unlikely to sell him cheaply.

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia and MLS are also interested in Neymar. MLS has emerged as the next destination. In recent years, players who spent their prime in Europe have been heading to MLS. Lionel Messi, Jordi Alba, Sergio Busquets, and others have made the move to MLS. If Neymar were to move to the United States, it would be interesting to see if he could cross paths with Messi. 먹튀검증

But it looks like he’s headed to Saudi Arabia. Al-Hilal also revealed that he plans to meet with his father to discuss the signing of Neymar. Starting with Cristiano Ronaldo, the Saudis have been sweeping up European shooting stars. Not just players, but managers like Steven Gerrard. And then there’s the astronomical
