Transfer News: Neymar Jr Signs $300 Million Contract with Al Hilal
Big news in the football world! Neymar Jr., the famous Brazilian player, has surprised everyone by joining a Saudi Arabian team called Al Hilal. He signed a deal for two years and will earn an incredible $300 million, which makes him the player who gets paid the most ever! But wait, there’s more!

Neymar Expected Choice: Barcelona and Manchester City
Neymar, who is now 31 years old, had choices to go back to Barcelona or to play for Manchester City. This happened because his contract with Paris Saint-Germain ended last season. But guess what? He decided to play for Al Hilal, which is the most successful team in Saudi Arabia and Asia.
Al Hilal Glorious Achievements
Al Hilal has won lots of trophies – 18 of them are from the Saudi Professional League and 8 are from the Asian Football Confederation. They wanted Neymar to be part of their big plan to be good in football all around the world. The club belongs to the Public Investment Fund, which is a special money fund from Saudi Arabia. This fund has been spending lots of money on sports and fun stuff.
Neymar has scored 77 goals for Brazil, and that’s as many as Pelé, a famous player. He said he was happy to have a new challenge and thanked Al Hilal for trusting him.
He said, “I’m really glad to be in Al Hilal, a club with a big history and lots of fans. I want to help them reach their goals and make their fans happy. I’m excited to play in Saudi Arabia and Asia and learn about new things. I’m thankful to Al Hilal for giving me this chance and such a good contract. I want to show that they made a good choice by playing well on the field.”
Al Hilal President Welcomes Neymar
The president of Al Hilal, Fahad bin Nafel, said he’s super happy that Neymar is on the team. He thinks Neymar is one of the best players in the world.
“Neymar is an amazing player who has shown how good he is on the biggest stage. He can change games with his special skills, creativity, and goals. A lot of people all over the world like him because he’s cool and has a good personality. We’re proud to have him with us, and we’re sure he’ll help our team and our league. We believe that Neymar will help us become one of the top teams in the world,” said bin Nafel.
