Neymar’s Future Hangs in the Balance: Barcelona or Saudi Arabia?

2 min read

Neymar’s future continues to be a subject of speculation, with the possibility of his return to FC Barcelona this summer. However, Saudi Arabian clubs have also expressed strong interest in the PSG superstar.

The 31-year-old forward appears destined to leave Paris this summer, and a potential move back to Barça has gained traction, supported by club president Joan Laporta.

Nonetheless, Manager Xavi Hernandez holds reservations about the transfer, prompting Laporta’s determination to win him over.

Besides the concerns from Xavi, Barcelona must also contend with attention from Saudi Arabia.

Notably, Saudi Arabian giants Al Hilal are keen on initiating talks with Neymar

According to Santi Aouna of Foot Mercato, Al Hilal is eyeing Neymar, with an estimated market value of €60 million.

The club plans to send a representative to commence negotiations with Neymar’s father and agent.

PSG is open to allowing Neymar’s departure upon receiving a favorable offer. Al Hilal possesses financial capability, highlighted by significant signings like Malcom, Ruben Neves, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, and Kalidou Koulibaly.

Al Hilal’s intention to deploy a delegation for discussions with Neymar’s father could potentially pose a concern for Barcelona.

An alternative route for Neymar: Barça through Saudi Arabia?

Conversely, recent reports indicate Pini Zahavi is orchestrating a unique scenario: Neymar’s transition from PSG to a Saudi Arabian club, followed by a loan move to Barcelona for a season.

This intricate maneuver necessitates careful execution but could alleviate Barcelona’s financial burden by exempting them from Neymar’s complete salary.

The feasibility of this approach hinges on Neymar’s inclination to relocate to Saudi Arabia and Al Hilal’s openness to such a collaboration.

Ultimately, the outcome rests on the decisions of the player and the cooperation of the clubs involved.
