Paris Saint-Germain and Brazilian forward Neymar is set to undergo a medical with Saudi Pro League side Al Hilal this week ahead of a $98.5m transfer.
The 31-year-old was left out of the Parisians’ goalless stalemate with French club Lorient on Saturday night. According to ESPN journalist Julien Laurens, the former wonderkid has agreed to a two-year deal with the option of a third at the Saudi side which will see him pocket almost $110m after tax per year.

Neymar set for Saudi switch
In order to prove his worth for the Brazilian national team for the 2026 FIFA World Cup, Neymar is thought to want to move back to European football in two years’ time to return to a high standard of domestic club football for one last push at winning Brazil’s sixth title- their first since 2002.
