Neymar Jr.’s time with Paris Saint-Germain is reportedly over. The 31-year-old is on the verge of heading to Saudi Arabia to continue his career.
French journalist Saber Desfarges shared some personal details that the Brazilian has agreed to as he becomes a new player for Al-Hilal. According to the information, Neymar has agreed to a two-year contract with a transfer fee of around €100 million.
The latest reports suggest that the fee is €90 million for the 2015 UEFA Champions League winner. This decision also brings to light Neymar’s dreams of a potential return to FC Barcelona.

However, the Brazilian’s hopes were dampened by a lack of support from manager Xavi Hernandez. The former Barcelona player and legend reportedly do not favor Neymar’s return to Camp Nou, a pivotal factor that likely influenced Neymar’s decision to explore other avenues.
With Neymar on the verge of leaving, PSG and Kylian Mbappé have agreed in principle to extend his contract. The next step will be for both parties to discuss the terms and structure.
