Neymar Jr is expected to officially announce his departure from Paris St Germain within the next few days. The player was one of the biggest topics in the transfer market window in Europe.
The star has fully recovered from the injury that ruled him out for most of last season but was not counted out for Paris Saint-Germain’s Ligue 1 opener against Lorient. It was the first game without Lionel Messi and ended 0-0.
Many sources in Europe have said that Neymar Jr will indeed leave the club. Journalists such as Marcelo Bechler and Jose Alvarez recently pointed out that the player was close to Barcelona and was waiting for an official announcement from PSG. However, a sudden and important change can occur.
Today transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano has just announced that Al-Hilal of Saudi Arabia have made contact with the Brazilian player. The club led by Jorge Jesus made a huge offer for the star and he could be convinced to take it.
Then L’Equipe confirmed that the new contract for Neymar will give 160 million euros for two years. PSG always wanted an option from Al-Hilal as Barcelona were unable to pay the full transfer fee.
Now all that remains is Neymar’s answer. However, all signs are positive. In the coming days, according to the latest reports, the Brazilian will sign a contract with Al-Hilal. By the way, the club from Saudi Arabia would pay a transfer fee close to 80 million euros.
