Official: Neymar joins Al-Hilal on £2.5m-per-week salary

August 15th, 2023 by Olasunkanmi Ibikunle

Neymar has completed his move to Al-Hilal from Paris Saint-Germain on a staggering £2.5million a week.

The Brazilian is set to pick up a record salary worth up to £314million over two years.

The 31-year-old made it clear to PSG chiefs earlier this month that he wanted to leave Parc des Princes.

He has now penned a two-year deal and consequently becomes the Saudi Pro League’s highest-profile summer capture.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Neymar will earn in the region of £257million over two seasons.

This equates to around £2.5m a week.

His new dressing room includes Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Kalidou Koulibaly, Ruben Neves and former Barcelona ace Malcom.

A return to the Nou Camp was floated but chief Xavi did not want the attacker back unless it was on loan.

Mauricio Pochettino urged to sign Neymar for Chelsea

August 8th, 2023 by Olasunkanmi Ibikunle

Chelsea legend Marcel Desailly has urged Mauricio Pochettino to reunite with Neymar.

The Blues boss reportedly has no interest in joining up with the Brazilian, despite the fact he could be attainable this summer for just £60million.

Desailly feels that the Paris Saint-Germain outcast could change Chelsea’s fortunes if Pochettino is prepared to compromise.

“Pochettino doesn’t yet have that individual player who can make the difference for his team, that established player like Mbappe,” the Frenchman told BoyleSports.

“I think Chelsea should move for Neymar. I believe he is still part of the six or seven best in the world, but there has to be a real desire from the coach to have him.

“To be able to express himself, he needs to be in a system where he is the playmaker and the leader, behind two strikers or on the left with some freedom.”

Pep Guardiola phones Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar

May 30th, 2023 by Olasunkanmi Ibikunle

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola called Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar to enquire about his intentions with his future in doubt ahead of the summer transfer window.

The forward’s season was curtailed by injury and he has frustrated PSG with some of his behaviour, such as attending the Monaco Grand Prix while his team-mates celebrated winning Ligue 1.

Guardiola is keen to know exactly what the Brazil international is thinking ahead of the summer transfer window and called up for a chat, according to L’Equipe.

The report, though, adds that the 31-year-old is unlikely to move to the Etihad, despite the Spanish tactician’s recent interest in his wellbeing.

Neymar and his stunning model Wag have announced they are expecting their first child together.

The PSG superstar, 31, was tagged in a post that Bruna Biancardi shared on Instagram telling the world their happy news.

“You will arrive in a beautiful family, with your brother, grandparents, uncles and aunties who already love you very much!

“Come soon son/daughter, we are waiting for you!”

Bruna posted: “Don’t believe everything that happens out there.

“I am very fond of him [Neymar] and his whole family. Please stop involving my name. Thank you.”

However, the pair spent the Brazil international’s 31st birthday together in February and shared some intimate photos on social media.

And this latest piece of new confirms they are very much back together.

Neymar stretchered off in tears after twisting ankle in Lille clash

February 19th, 2023 by Olasunkanmi Ibikunle

Neymar was stretchered off in tears after appearing to sustain a nasty ankle injury while playing for PSG a Ligue 1 clash with Lille.

The Brazilian was stretchered off in the 51st minute, and is now a huge doubt to feature in his side’s Champions League second leg against Bayern Munich.

Things had been going swimmingly for PSG, who had led 2-0 through brilliant goals by Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.

But things began to go wrong on 24 minutes, when Bafode Diakite pulled one back for Lille.

Disaster struck shortly after half-time, when Neymar landed awkwardly on the halfway line, twisting his ankle in the process.

He receive lengthy on-field treatment, with the stretcher being called.

Neymar initially tried to walk off himself, but after one step realised that he’d need the stretcher after all.

The tearful star eventually lay down and was carried off, being replaced by Hugo Ekitike.

Things went from bad to worse just five minutes later, when Lille were awarded a penalty for a soft handball.
