Watch: Neymar presented as Al Hilal player in glitzy ceremony | Football News

Brazilian superstar Neymar was officially unveiled as an Al Hilal player at the King Fahd International Stadium on Saturday.

Neymar signed a two-year contract with the Riyadh-based club after moving from Paris St Germain. Financial details were not disclosed but the transfer is reported to be for a fee of about 90 million euros plus add-ons.

“I am very excited to write a new story chasing all the objectives with the club and my team mates – winning more and more titles and fulfilling the club’s ambition,” Neymar had said on Wednesday.

Last week, Neymar missed PSG’s season-opening 0-0 draw against Lorient in the French league after training alone, with the club saying it was because he was recovering from a viral infection.

The 31-year-old Brazilian joined PSG from Barcelona for a world-record fee of 222 million euros (now $244 million) six years ago, the same year Kylian Mbappe joined from Monaco in a deal worth 180 million euros.

“It is exciting, meeting top-quality players on the other teams thrills you and motivates you to play even better. And it is a given when you face Ronaldo, Benzema, (Roberto) Firmino, that the excitement is even greater,” Neymar said.
