Neymar after joining Al-Hilal: I have always wanted to be a global player

Al Hilal managed to bring Neymar from PSG for a price of 80 million pounds. The Brazilian will earn 130 million pounds per year. He signed a contract for two years. Many were surprised by Neymar's decision, but this popular soccer player decided to take on a new challenge.

As he said, his goal is to become a global player. In addition, the fact that many football players went to Saudi Arabia attracted him to start building a career there. ‘I have achieved a lot in Europe and enjoyed special times, but I have always wanted to be a global player and test myself with new challenges and opportunities in new places,’ said Neymar, as quoted by METRO.

‘I want to write new sporting history, and the Saudi Pro League has tremendous energy and quality players at the moment. I have heard a lot and learned that I am following a long list of Brazilian players who have played in Saudi Arabia over the years, so I believe it is the desired place.'

Neymar and Al-Hilal

Neymar is particularly happy to play for Al-Hilal given the club's history and the fact that they are one of the best teams in Asia. Al-Hilal fans could not hide their delightment at such a big transfer.

They are aware of what kind of player has come to their club and what it represents for them. ‘Al-Hilal is a giant club with fantastic fans, and it is the best in Asia. This gives me a feeling that it is the right decision for me at the right time with the right club.

I love winning and scoring goals, and I plan to continue doing that in Saudi Arabia and with Al-Hilal.’ Let us recall; Many European football players decided to leave Europe this summer and go to Saudi Arabia. The biggest reason is obviously money.

The Saudis want to create a league that will be followed around the world. It is expected that several more players will end up in Saudi Arabia in the next few days.
