PSG’s Neymar undergoing medical ahead of €90m move to Al-Hilal

Xavi debunks Neymar transfer rumours amid links to Barcelona return

Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar is set to join Al-Hilal after agreeing to sign a two-year deal worth €160 million. 

The Athletic’s David Ornstein is reporting the 31-year-old is currently undergoing a medical ahead of his move to Saudi Arabia.

Al-Hilal have already agreed a €90m transfer fee with the Parisians for the Brazil international.

Neymar joined PSG in a record €222m move from Barcelona in 2017. But he failed to make a huge impact at the Parc des Princes due to recurring injury problems. 

The forward made 173 appearances across all competitions during his six years at the club, registering 118 goals and 77 assists. 

He still has two years left on his contract in Paris, but the Ligue 1 giants are willing to part with him this summer. 

The Brazilian was part of the club’s pre-season, but it became clear last week that he wasn’t in manager Luis Enrique’s plans for the 2023-24 season. 

Neymar preferred a return to Barcelona where he enjoyed tremendous success between 2013 and 2017. 

But a move to Camp Nou wasn’t possible because of the Catalans’ financial situation. 

He is now set to join the Saudi Pro League, which has attracted some of the biggest names in football this summer. 

They include Karim Benzema, Kalidou Koulibaly, Edouard Mendy, N’Golo Kante, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Ruben Neves.
