Saudi Arabia has the football league that is investing the most money in contracts for its players in the world. Teams like Al Nassr have stars of the level of Sadio Mané and Cristiano Ronaldo, with the Portuguese being the highest paid player in the world, with the 200 million euros he earns per year. Al Ittihad, for its part, added players of the caliber of Karim Benzema and N'Golo Kanté. In addition, he has now just hired Marcelo Gallardo as technical director, the Argentine who won a large number of titles with River Plate and in the Middle East will become the third highest paid coach in the world.

Al Hilal was looking throughout the transfer market to match his rivals and bring a superstar to his team. That is why the team that came third in the last championship came to offer 700 million dollars per year to Lionel Messi. As is known, the Rosario star rejected that proposal and opted for Inter Miami of Major League Soccer, it was there when he targeted Neymar Junior.

Some time after Messi's refusal, Al Hilal continued looking for an international star who could come from Europe. Saudi Arabia's public investment fund is injecting state money into clubs so they can make additions of that category. That is why Cristiano Ronaldo believes that, in a few years, the Saudi league will be top worldwide. The Portuguese's assessment reached a point that led him to say that he does not plan to return to Europe and that it is a better league than the MLS.

What can bring Neymar back to Europe

In the Premier League, the project that sought to avoid certain types of transfers was put to a vote. Some saw it as bad that transfers are made between teams whose owner is the same person or business group. However, the result was that the current scheme will be maintained, so any player playing in Saudi Arabia could move to Newcastle in the Premier League. Neymar was linked to the English club on more than one occasion. Furthermore, a loan would allow 'Ney' to continue maintaining his opulent salary of 100 million euros per year and since Al Hilal would pay it, the financial Fair Play would not be violated.
