Neymar wants to leave Saudi Arabia after only five games for Al Hilal

Neymar Al Hilal

Neymar Jr is set to leave Saudi Arabia and has told players at former club Santos that he will return to Brazil by 2025, a report claims.

Neymar left Paris Saint-Germain to join Al Hilal for a whopping €90m in the summer but suffered an ACL injury just five games into his career in Saudi Arabia. His contract is estimated at 150 million euros per season.

While he remains on the sidelines, Neymar returned to Brazil to watch former side Santos face Palmeiras in the Campeonato Paulista final, and according to UOL Esporte, it was here that he privately announced his plan to leave Saudi Arabia.

Neymar has reportedly told Santos players and staff that he plans to move in Brazil’s 2025 season, which is due to start in April 2025 – two months before his contract with Al Hilal expires.

The winger has previously spoken of wanting to return to Brazil at some point, but this latest speech is the 1st hint of a timetable for Neymar’s plans.

Neymar impressed in the first few weeks of his time in Saudi Arabia, picking up 3 assists and 1 goal in 5 games before going down with an injury that could easily end his season.
