Neymar takes private jet to Saudi Arabia to play for Al-Hilal

Al-Hilal has just flown Neymar Jr to Saudi Arabia in the world’s most expensive private jet. 

Neymar da Silva Santos Junior just joined the Riyadh-based team, signing a two-year contract worth millions of dollars. 

And that contract, which comes with a laundry list of perks and bonuses, is already paying off.

Footage emerged at the weekend showing Neymar Jr boarding the $200 million private jet in Paris en route to Saudi Arabia. 

The plane is owned by Prince Alwaleed bin Talal and will reportedly be made available to the star footballer during the length of his contract with Al-Hilal. 

Because it’s owned by royalty, this jet is of course fit for royalty too. 

Called the Flying Palace, the Boeing 747 was heavily customized to have lounge rooms, dining rooms, and even bedrooms with full-size beds on board.

Not only will he have access to the Flying Palace, but the star forward will also be enjoying a bunch of crazy perks on top of his $100 million annual base salary.

The 31-year-old Brazilian will be moving into his own mansion in Riyadh, which comes with private, live-in staff. 

He’s also in line for huge bonuses for his talents on the field, and his social media use. 

Neymar Jr will reportedly make a $87,000 (€80,000) bonus for every Al-Hilal win and a $545,000 (€500,000) for every post or story he creates on social media that promotes Saudi Arabia. 

His move to Saudi Arabia follows a six-year stint with Paris Saint-Germain, which he joined after leaving FC Barcelona.

His contract with the Saudi side is so wild it almost makes Neymar Jr’s look like an afterthought. 

Ronaldo signed on with Al-Nassr for a reported $220 million (€200 million) per season. 

The deal saw Ronaldo become the highest-paid soccer player in the history of the sport.
