As it turns out, Neymar won’t just be enjoying a hefty base salary from the Saudi Pro League’s Al-Hilal — because his two-year contract also entails an enviable grocery list of bonuses.

According to Foot Mercato, some of the perks the star forward (full name: Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior) will soon be enjoying courtesy of the Riyadh-based franchise include the following:

  • A private jet is entirely at his disposal
  • The obligatory mansion and his own personal staff; similar to Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrangement, he’ll be able to live with his girlfriend Bruna Biancardi despite not being married (something prohibited by Saudi law)
  • €80,000 ($135,000) for every Al-Hilal win
  • And perhaps the most insane of them all: €500,000 ($840,000) for every social media post or story promoting Saudi Arabia

This comes just weeks after Al-Hilal’s unsuccessful US$1.1 billion (AU$1.6 billion) bid for Neymar’s PSG teammate, Kylian Mbappe. Yet another stark reminder that Saudi / oil money does indeed hit different.

Neymar joins a growing number of international superstars who’ve defected from Europe to play for the Saudi Pro League in recent years, such as:

  • Cristiano Ronaldo, who left Manchester United to play for Al-Nassr under a €200 million contract
  • Karim Benzema (Real Madrid to Al-Ittihad)
  • N’Golo Kante (Chelsea to Al-Ittihad)
  • Sadio Mane (Bayern Munich to Al-Nassr)
  • Roberto Firmino (Liverpool to Al-Ahli)

But given what the Saudi Pro League is apparently willing to pay for top talent, these names certainly won’t be the last.
