Neymar Resumes Rehab at Al Hilal, Santos Return Rumored

Star striker Neymar is back in Saudi Arabia, continuing his rehab at Al Hilal while rumors swirl about a potential return to his boyhood club Santos in Brazil.

Neymar received a warm welcome in Riyadh, greeted by club officials and fans despite being sidelined with a serious knee injury. 

This injury, suffered in October, ruled him out for the season but hasn’t dampened speculation about his future.

A Spanish newspaper claims Neymar desires a return to Santos where his professional journey began at the age of 11.

His impressive performances there paved the way for a move to Barcelona and a historic attacking trio alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

Signing for Al Hilal last summer was a record-breaking move, but his debut was delayed due to another injury.

He only managed five appearances before the ACL tear. Nevertheless, Hilal remain league leaders without him.

Images show Neymar training at the club’s facilities, suggesting progress in his recovery. 

While his absence hasn’t affected their league position, his return would be a major boost for Hilal’s upcoming Asian Champions League matches and the rest of the season.

The future remains uncertain, but one thing is clear: Neymar’s return to Saudi Arabia has fueled excitement, both for his potential comeback and the possibility of a sentimental return to his roots.
