The amount spent by Premier League teams on overseas transactions is £1.6 billion. Jordan Henderson, Roberto Firmino and Fabinho were among the Premier League players who moved to Saudi Arabia. Saudi clubs also signed Neymar’s PSG team-mate Georginio Wijnaldum, Real Madrid’s Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema and Bayern Munich’s Sadio Mane. Other players set to switch to the Saudi Professional League include Inter Milan’s Champions League final captain Marcelo Brozovic, Barcelona’s Frank Kessie, Celtic’s Jota and Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. “I can assure you that soccer in Saudi Arabia is the same. The ball is round and there is a goal,” said Neymar. “There is no secret. We practice hard there and the thirst for victory is still great. We will win the trophy with Al Hilal. “I want to win. It doesn’t change much,” he said.카지노사이트
