The Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia will support the four Saudi Arabian organisations. With the financial backing, these four clubs intend to revolutionise the Saudi Arabian Pro League and import some of Europe’s top players to the Middle Eastern country. Saudi organisations are interested in two Chelsea players: N’Golo Kante and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund, which purchased Newcastle United in 2021, reportedly seized control of Al Hilal, Al Nassr, Al Ahli, and Al Ittihad, acquiring a 75% stake in each club. The objective is to revamp the Saudi Pro League and make it an attractive destination for the world’s finest footballers.
In January, Cristiano Ronaldo joined Al Nassr, while Karim Benzema was introduced as a new Al Ittihad player. Al Hilal is attempting to sign Lionel Messi, who will depart Paris Saint-Germain as a free agent. The Saudi revolution will continue, as additional European celebrities will be targeted.
Saudi Arabian organisations desire N’Golo Kante and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Chelsea.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Al Ahli and Al Shabab have contacted Gabon international to discuss a possible relocation to the Middle East. In January, Aubameyang rejected a move to the MLS because he desired to remain in Europe. He will depart Chelsea this summer because Mauricio Pochettino has no use for him.
According to Romano, a delegation from Al Ittihad flew to London to present Kante with a proposition. The Frenchman’s CFC contract is in its final month, and he appeared inclined to sign a new agreement that would keep him in London for at least two more years. However, he had not yet committed his plans to paper, and his future remained uncertain.
Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante is close to joining Al Ittihad.
Al Ittihad made a massive financial offer that would see Kante earn €100 million per season, including image rights, commercial agreements, and a portfolio of creative investments. The 32-year-old was stunned by the lucrative financial offer and is now expected to leave CFC. Romano further tweeted that a meeting was held between the Saudi PIF delegation, the Al Ittihad board, and Kante’s representatives in order to finalise the contract.
The Frenchman will earn a staggering €100 million per season through 2025, and a transfer announcement is imminent.
