Man Utd proven right over Neymar as Al Hilal 'dressing room fight' reports emerge
| Last updated
Manchester United have been proven right NOT to sign Neymar following the explosive reports of a 'dressing room fight' at Al Hilal.
But the Premier League side were unwilling to offer the Brazilian a long-term contract at the club.
The Red Devils eventually pulled out of the race to sign the superstar forward due to his salary demands, according to Spanish outlet Sport.
Neymar was pocketing a massive £26 million-per-year in France following his mega transfer from Barcelona.
Man United were wary of falling into the Neymar trap despite their admiration for the player.
The 31-year-old went onto sign for Al Hilal as he left Europe for Saudi Arabia, following in the footsteps of Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Riyad Mahrez, among many others.
He moved to the Saudi Pro League side in a transfer worth £77.6 million.
But there appears to be unrest at Al Hilal, with reports claiming an altercation between Neymar and manager Jorge Jesus took place after the club's AFC Champions League match against Navbahor, which ended 1-1.
Per Mundo Deportivo, Neymar wants the club to sack Jesus after he was harshly reprimanded for his below-par performance and bad attitude.
The report also states that club directors met with Jesus’ agent and warned him of the possibility of terminating the coach’s contract if Al Hilal’s performance does not improve in the near future.
The damning report regarding Neymar seems to show Ten Hag made the right call in not acquiring him for Man United.
