Malcom’s transfer will be a record for Saudi Arabia.
Zenit sell the midfielder to Al-Hilal for 60 million euros – the largest amount in the history of the Middle East league.
Until the completion of all procedures related to this transition, Ruben Neves, acquired by Al-Hilal for 55 million euros, will remain the most expensive player. He is followed by Sergej Milinkovic-Savic with €40m (from Lazio to Al Hilal), according to Transfermarkt.
Malcolm also becomes the most expensive outbound transfer in World RPL history.
