The move by the Brazilian has created a fresh wave of enthusiasm for football in the Middle East same as when Cristiano Ronaldo joined Al-Nassr.

The former Santos and Barcelona man left PSG to join Al-Hilal for a massive transfer, making his presence in the league that has been signing European based players since last winter.

Recall we reported that Neymar did request for several luxurious demands immediately he was contacted by the Saudi Club.

We also reported that Al Hilal completed the signing of Neymar from Paris Saint Germain for a transfer fee of €90 million.

And Neymar went on to pen a two-year deal with the Saudi Pro League club, which is valid until 2025.

The former Barcelona man became Al Hilal’s 5th signing this summer, having already signed Malcom, Ruben Neves, Sergej Milinković-Savić, and Kalidou Koulibaly.

Neymar completed a move to Al-Hilal on a two-year deal which will see him earn a staggering £2.5million a week.

The 32-year-old is one of the biggest stars to move to the Middle East together with Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo who are the headline superstars in Saudi Arabia.

Fresh reports now have it that since Neymar signed for the Saudi side, the club sold out his number 10 jersey in a matter of hours following his unveiling.
