The Saudi Pro League invested almost a billion dollars last transfer window, second only to the Premier League. But is money the only reason to attract players? People may have multiple reasons, but the colleague of Neymar at Al Hilal, Malcom, expressed his pleasure of living in the Middle East. The Brazilian showered his praise for the country, saying “I will tell my son when he grows up that Saudi Arabia is a wonderful country, not just for playing football… but also for living in it.”

Malcom moved to Al Hilal earlier this July for a transfer of $63 million from Zenit Saint Petersburg. The striker has quickly adapted to his new team and had an astounding start to the League by scoring a hat trick against Abha.
