Paris St. Germain and Saudi Pro League team Al Hilal have reached a deal to sell Brazilian forward Neymar. The deal is contingent on Neymar passing his medical, the BBC said on Monday.
The BBC said that the transfer fee was about 90 million euros ($98.56 million) and that there were extra costs as well.
Neymar moved to PSG from Barcelona in 2017 for a world record transfer fee of 222 million euros ($243 million). He missed PSG’s Ligue 1 start against Lorient on Saturday because he had a virus.
Neymar signed a deal to stay in Paris until 2025. He has scored 118 goals in 173 games and won many prizes, including five Ligue 1 wins.
Al Hilal had tried to sign Kylian Mbappe, who plays with the Brazilian for PSG. They were also interested in the Argentine Lionel Messi, but he chose to play for Inter Miami in Major League Soccer.
Al Hilal is the most successful team in both Saudi Arabia and Asia. They have won 66 awards and hold the records for most league wins (18) and Asian Champions League titles (4).
The Riyadh-based club wants to improve its team because the Saudi Public Investment Fund announced in June that it would invest in and privatize four league winner sports teams: Al Ittihad, Al Ahli, Al Nassr, and Al Hilal.
