Why Bernardo Silva reject Saudi Arabia Contracts

Saudi Arabia has been spending a lot of money on offering incredibly generous contracts to get great football players. One famous example is Cristiano Ronaldo, a five-time winner of the Ballon d’Or.

The legendary Portuguese footballer signed a record-breaking £173 million per year contract with Al-Nassr in December of last year, becoming him the highest-paid player in football history.

Benzema departed Real Madrid for Al-Ittihad, and according to Goal, Kante is about to follow his fellow Frenchman to Jeddah. Benzema left Real Madrid for Al-Ittihad.

While some players have signed with Saudi Arabian clubs for virtually nothing, the Gulf country is prepared to make large payments for great football players.

Ruben Neves, a midfielder for Wolves, is reportedly close to joining Al-Hilal for £47 million.

However, several players have turned down the chance to play football in the Middle Eastern nation despite the significant financial incentives.

Although there were rumors that Messi might join Al-Hilal and rekindle his rivalry with Cristiano Ronaldo, he picked the MLS instead since it offered a better quality of life.

The legendary Barcelona player reportedly turned down Al-Hilal’s astounding £1 billion offer, which would have made him the highest-paid athlete in history.
