Saudi Arabia’s Al-Hilal have reportedly confirmed the signing of superstar Neymar, leading to claims that the club is on the verge of creating a ‘new Galacticos’.
According to Brazilian and overseas media outlets on Thursday (KST), Al Hilal has finalised a deal with Neymar and will hold a press conference to announce the signing on the 16th (local time).
Neymar will reportedly receive a salary of €320 million (approximately $46.61 billion) for two years, with a transfer fee of around €90 million (approximately $13.12 billion).
Saudi media outlet Yalakhora highlighted Al-Hilal’s explosive signings of superstars in this summer’s transfer window, analysing the club’s super-sized reinforcements in addition to Neymar.
“Al-Hilal are close to being the highest spending club in the world (on players),” Yalakora reported, adding that the club has spent €178 million ($260 million) on transfers so far this summer.

It’s money that Al Hilal has already spent so far, with the likes of Malcom (Maukong Siuba) from Russian side Zenit, Nabil Neves from English side Wolverhampton, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic from Italian side Lazio and Kalidou Koulibaly from English side Chelsea.
With Neymar’s arrival now a certainty, Yalacora believes further reinforcements will continue. Marco Verratti (PSG) and Alexander Mitrovic (Fulham) are also on the list of targets.
If all these ‘big names’ come together, Al Hilal will become the new ‘Galactic Legion’, the most expensive club in the world.
‘Galactic Legion’ is synonymous with ‘Earth Defence Force’, a nickname that Real Madrid earned in the past when they were enjoying their golden era by building an ultra-luxury squad with the best players on the planet.
Al Hilal previously spent €60 million ($87.4 million) on Malcom, the highest transfer fee in Saudi and non-European league history, and now they are set to surpass that record with Neymar.
