The Wolfs captain has been inducted into Saudi Arabia.
Al Hilal announced the signing on its social media channels on Thursday, saying, “Hubeng Neves has arrived in Riyadh and joined the top club in Asia. We wish him the best of luck,” Al Hilal announced Neves’ signing.
Neves also wrote a final letter to his fans before saying goodbye to Wolverhampton. According to Wolverhampton’s website, Neves wrote: “Six seasons, 253 games. An English Football League Championship, five years in the English Premier League (EPL), an English FA Cup semi-final, European competitions, huge victories. 30 goals, 13 assists, and thousands of memories that will last forever. It’s been an unbelievable journey. What we have achieved will live forever in the history of the club,” he concluded.
He added: “Thank you to the fans. I will now be one of you. This is where I feel at home and I will never forget it. My children grew up in Wolverhampton and I was so happy. I hope we can continue this relationship. I’m leaving as a player, but I’ll always be a Wolf, no matter what. Thank you for everything,” he said in farewell.
Neves, who grew up in Porto, made his England debut with a move to Wolverhampton. Having represented Portugal at various age groups, he was highly sought after. Once he made the leap to the first team, Neves lived up to expectations, leading Wolverhampton to promotion to the English Premier League (EPL).
Neves has been an integral part of Wolverhampton’s midfield for six seasons. He plays a pivotal role in the midfield, providing essential link-up play as well as dedicated defense. He has been used by Nuno Santo and Bruno Raz, as well as Julen Lopetegui.
“Manchester United have decided to sign Neves, who has expressed a desire to play in the UEFA Champions League (UCL),” says The Sun. Former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been linked with a move and is unlikely to extend his contract at Wolverhampton,” predicting a move to Old Trafford. “Neves has been linked with a number of clubs, including Liverpool and Barcelona, as well as United,” said the BBC.
Neves has always been loyal: “I’m happy at Wolverhampton and I’m going to focus on that. “I’m happy at Wolverhampton and I’m going to focus on it, because I’m sure that if I play my part, the future is bright,” he said. “My goal is to be at Wolverhampton and that’s not going to change. 토토사이트 I still have a lot to learn and a lot to pay back.” It’s no wonder everyone at Wolverhampton loves him.
But as his contract expires, it’s time to say goodbye. For the financially strapped club, this summer was their last chance to secure a transfer for Neves.
The huge transfer fee and salary offered by the Saudis appealed to both Wolverhampton and Neves. “Saudi Arabia’s Al-Hilal have agreed a 55 million euro ($78.3 billion) transfer fee for Neves,” reports The Athletic. Wolverhampton are keen for the deal to be finalized quickly. Al-Hilal and Neves are negotiating personal terms. There were reports that Barcelona wanted Neves, but they ran into financial problems again last summer.”
In the end, Neves joined Al Hilal. The Saudi league is becoming more competitive with the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo, followed by Karim Benzema and N’Golo Kante, and now Neves.
