In recent years, the Saudi Pro League has emerged as a new hotspot for football’s star players seeking lucrative contracts and fresh challenges.
The league has seen a significant influx of high-profile names, ranging from seasoned veterans to promising young talents.
Karim Benzema and N’Golo Kante, two renowned French footballers, have already made headlines by joining defending champions Al Ittihad.
This trend has not only piqued the interest of seasoned players but has also prompted Premier League stars to contemplate bold switches to the Middle East.
The allure of significant financial gains and the chance to make a mark in a rapidly evolving league has become too enticing to ignore.
As the Saudi Pro League continues to grow in stature, it has become a magnet for football talent from around the globe. Even younger players are opting for moves to Saudi Arabia over traditional European giants like Manchester United and Barcelona.
Players like Ruben Neves impressing with Wolves in the Premier League, have chosen to embark on new adventures in the Middle East.
Senegal goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, who experienced three successful years at Chelsea, has taken his skills to Al Ahli. Similarly, Kalidou Koulibaly, a highly-rated defender, has joined Al Hilal after a solitary season with Chelsea.
The signing that sent shockwaves through the footballing world was that of Cristiano Ronaldo leaving Manchester United to join Al Nassr after the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
The Portuguese icon’s decision to move to Saudi Arabia helped bolster the league’s reputation and demonstrated its capacity to lure top talents.
Following in Ronaldo’s footsteps, Karim Benzema, the Ballon d’Or holder, secured a monumental deal with Al Ittihad.
His contract is reportedly worth an astounding £84 million per year over three years, making it one of the most lucrative deals in football history.
Joining him at Al Ittihad is N’Golo Kante, a World Cup winner with France, who is set to earn an impressive £67.6 million ($86 million) per year across his four-year contract.
PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe is the latest player who could potentially make a move to the Saudi Pro League.
With PSG reportedly accepting a staggering £259 million bid from Al Ahli, it would be the highest-ever bid in world football.
