This summer’s transfer window sparked significant discussions surrounding the spending spree of Saudi Pro League clubs. High-profile players like Neymar, Karim Benzema, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, and Riyad Mahrez, alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, made headlines with their moves to the Middle East. With this star-studded roster, skysports-report becomes the go-to platform for updates on these prominent transfers.
One notable instance was Napoli striker Victor Osimhen revealing the “crazy” bid from Al-Hilal for his services. Speaking on the Obi One Podcast with John Obi Mikel, Osimhen shared his perspective: “When the offer from Saudi Arabia, a substantial one, arrived, it was a tough decision. Despite the tempting financial offer, I engaged with Napoli and ultimately chose to stay. The persistence was remarkable; as I kept refusing, the financial incentives increased. It could have been a life-changing move, but I stood firm and said, ‘No, guys, I’m staying.'”
