What is the truth about Al Hilal terminating Neymar’s contract?

In recent hours, news has spread like wildfire that Al Hilal Saudi Club has terminated the contract of its Brazilian star, Neymar.

Neymar joined the Blue Wave last summer from Paris Saint-Germain for 90 million euros, but last September he injured his cruciate ligament and his season ended early.

It was said that Al Hilal terminated the Brazilian international’s contract, but in reality it merely dropped him from its list so that it could add the most recent assignment, Renan Lodi.

The Saudi League regulations stipulate that each club must have 8 foreign players, and with the signing of Lodi, coach Jorge Jesus’ squad has 9 foreigns.

Given that Neymar will not return until next August, Al Hilal management has temporarily dropped him from the list, with the expectation that he will return normally starting next season.

The Saudi Federation had previously announced that starting next season, each club will be allowed to own 10 foreigners, and here there will be no crisis in adding Neymar without the need to sell or let go of another player.

It is worth noting that Neymar played only 5 matches for Al Hilal, during which he scored one goal and assisted 3 others in all tournaments.

It is also worth noting that Neymar’s relationship with the current coach of Al Hilal, Jorge Jesus, is not good, which has reinforced rumors of his possible departure, but for now he is remaining with Al-Zaeem until the end of his contract in the summer of 2025.
