Fluminense's Thiago Neves agrees move to Al-Hilal - report
Fluminense's midfielder Thiago Neves has agreed to return to Saudi club Al-Hilal, according to reports in Brazilian press.
Lancenet reports that the midfielder needed a few days to decide about moving back to the Saudi league, but finally agreed to move after having a meeting with Al-Hilal representatives.
The length of the contract was reportedly one of the issues that delayed his final decision, as Thiago Neves did not want a long contract.
Thiago Neves is expected to arrive in Saudi Arabia next week to undergo the medical and sign a two-year contract.
The transfer fee is estimated in 6 million Euros, but Fluminense will receive only 20% of the value as the club sponsor's Unimed own most of his rights.
He has struggled to impress since he returned to Fluminense last year, and also missed many games due to injuries.
Al-Hilal still need to reach an agreement with Fluminense to make the deal official though.
