“I can assure you that the essence of football remains the same regardless of the location. The ball remains round, and goals are still scored,” Neymar responded confidently. “Judging by the presence of numerous high-profile stars currently plying their trade in the Saudi league, it is safe to say that it may even outshine its French counterpart.”

Portuguese icon Cristiano Ronaldo pioneered this trend, followed by the likes of Karim Benzema, Sadio Mane, N’Golo Kante, Roberto Firmino, Riyad Mahrez, Ruben Neves, Aymeric Laporte, and Anderson Talisca. Neymar’s colossal multi-billion transfer to Saudi Arabia solidified this trend.
