Srinagar: Brazilian football superstar Neymar has joined Saudi Arabia football side Al Hilal in a two year deal from PSG.
As per reports Saudi Pro League side Al Hilal have agreed a €90 million ($98.6m) deal with Paris Saint-Germain for Neymar.

Ney will travel to Saudi this week.
Two year contract. Number 🔟. PSG set to receive bit less than €100m fee.Medical to be completed today,” Fabrizio Romano on X formerly Twitter.
Earlier on Sunday it was reported that Neymar was close to agreeing personal terms with Al Hilal as the two clubs negotiated a deal. He will now join Al Hilal on a two-year contract with the option of a third.
Neymar will link up with new teammates Kalidou Koulibaly, Rúben Neves and Sergej Milinković-Savić, who all made the move to Al Hilal earlier this summer.
Al Hilal are one of four clubs — along with Al Nassr, Al Ahli and Al Ittithad who were taken under the ownership of Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund in June as part of the country’s “Sports Clubs Investment and Privatization Project.”
Saudi Pro League clubs have pursued an aggressive recruitment strategy in this transfer window, offering lucrative contracts to some of the sport’s biggest stars.
PSG made Neymar the most expensive footballer of all time in 2017 — a record he still holds — when they dramatically signed him from Barcelona in a €222m deal.
Neymar has won five Ligue 1 titles and 13 domestic honours in total with PSG, as well as finishing as runner-up in the 2020 Champions League final.
