Neymar is on a rocky road.
“Al Hilal will withdraw the registration of the injured Neymar in order to sign a player who plays in Europe,” global soccer media outlet Goal.com reported on Tuesday.
Neymar left Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 for a then world record transfer fee of 220 million euros ($285.9 billion).
While he has never said so himself, there is some speculation that Neymar chose to move to PSG because he was unhappy living in Lionel Messi’s shadow and wanted to be his own man.
Neymar had a rough start at PSG. There was a lot of noise. He struggled to fit in, feuded, and was linked with a transfer.
On top of all that, injuries have hampered him. Since joining PSG, Neymar has missed 45.3% of his games due to injury. Last season, he was diagnosed with a sprained right ankle and was ruled out for the season.
The number of games Neymar has missed due to injury during his time at PSG is significant. Since 2018, he has consistently missed close to 10 games.굿모닝토토

His destination was Al-Hilal. They spent a fortune to sign Neymar. His salary alone is over 200 billion.
