According to CBS, Al-Hilal contacted Neymar’s agent when he was unable to bring Lionel Messi to Saudi Arabia.
Neymar is the next superstar to be on the radar of Al-Hilal after Lionel Messi turned down an offer of 500 million euros a year, instead going to Inter Miami.
According to CBS, a team of Al-Hilal arrived in Paris on June 9 to negotiate with Neymar’s agent. Accordingly, the Brazilian player is said to have a contract worth 200 million euros/year and the terms are similar to the agreement that Cristiano Ronaldo signed with Al-Nassr.
As for Al-Hilal, the 18-time Saudi Pro League champion is willing to pay about 45 million euros to PSG to make a transfer fee for the Neymar deal. However, the Saudi Arabian team has only worked with Neymar’s agent and has not mentioned the issue with PSG.

Previously, PSG had to spend 222 million euros to release Neymar’s contract with Barcelona in 2017. However, PSG will most likely accept the loss and welcome any team that raises the question of recruiting Neymar when they want to put the Brazilian superstar out of the plan for the 2023-2024 season.
Neymar moved to PSG from 2017 with 179 matches and 123 goals in all competitions. Neymar’s current contract with PSG lasts until 2025. Recently, Neymar is said to be at odds with Mbappe, the current No. 1 star of the Paris team.
