Brazilian club Santos plotting sensational return for Neymar
Neymar has been ruled out with an ACL injury for the entire 2023-24 season
Santos, a Brazilian team, are preparing a move to resign Neymar Jr. to the team, following his knee injury recuperation and “experience in Saudi Arabia.”
Neymar joined Saudi Pro League club Al-Hilal as their star player after joining for £78 million last summer, following in the footsteps of Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema to the Saudi Pro League.
He has only made five games for the team, though, prior to sustaining a devastating knee injury while travelling with Brazil for international play. After having surgery to repair the ligament in his knee, the 32-year-old attacker is expected to miss the remainder of the campaign.
Although Neymar’s current contract with Al-Hilal expires in 2025, Santos are already preparing a move to sign the former star for Paris Saint-Germain.
The 32-year-old and club president Marcelo Teixeira have already begun speaking, and things are reportedly going well.

He declared: ‘The conversation [with Neymar] was very quick, but it’s always quick conversations that have good effect.
‘To come back and play here, he needs to recover well from injury. He will continue his experience in Saudi Arabia and then come back here.’
Neymar’s exit may be advantageous to both the team and himself because Al-Hilal are having trouble finding room in the squad.
In January, Al-Hilal signed Brazilian full-defender Renan Lodi, but to add another foreign player, they had to leave Neymar out of the squad.
When Neymar returns from injury after the season, the club is going to be able to re-register him, but his future in Saudi Arabia may suddenly be in jeopardy. There is more possibility of him staying in Saudi Arabia than going to Brazil. But nobody knows what the Brazilian will do next.
