He has now left Paris Saint-Germain after spending six years in the French capital in which he won five Ligue 1 titles.

Neymar is the latest big-name arrival in the league and is set to play against fellow stars including Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema.

Having wowed at PSG and Barcelona, as well as on the international stage with Brazil, he is one of the biggest names in the football.

And Al Hilal ensured they gave him a worthy welcome with a dazzling presentation on Saturday in front of their home crowd.

The night sky was lit up with the phones of expectant fans in the packed crowd inside the King Fahd International Stadium.

Drones flew above Al Hilal’s home ground and recreated Neymar’s card from FIFA Ultimate Team in spectacular fashion.

Neymar then made his way out of the tunnel and onto the pitch, with lucky mascots high-fiving him along the way.

Flames also added to the atmosphere and the drones were put to great use once again as they spelled out ‘Neymar is Blue’.

Neymar appeared to be in awe of the welcome that he received from his new club as he begins the next chapter of his illustrious career.

His new Al Hilal teammates took the pitch themselves later in the night and went on to secure a 1-1 draw against Al Feiha.

Their new Brazilian signing did not feature though having not played a competitive game since February due to an ankle injury.

Neymar will be hoping to make his Al Hilal debut very soon though and is set to play up front with fellow newcomer Aleksandar Mitrovic.
