Al Hilal new signings summer 2024: Will the Saudi champions spend big again?

Saudi champions Al Hilal are hoping to lure more top European talent to the Pro League this summer. They dropped just six points in an unbeaten campaign last time around but may still look to do some business over the coming months. Here are the confirmed Al Hilal new signings so far for the summer 2024 window.

The Saudi transfer window opens in mid July and runs longer than the European ones, not closing until October 6th so there is plenty of time for Al Hilal to complete deals. They have not made any signings yet, but could potentially wait to strike for players in the major European leagues in September or later.

Last year, they spent in the region of €375m on new players. The likes of Aleksandar Mitrovic, Ruben Neves and Malcom established themselves in the team and were key factors in their unbeaten league campaign but €90m man Neymar only made five appearances before suffering an ACL injury.

The Brazilian should be ready to contribute during the 2024/25 season while Al Hilal’s squad will also initially be deepened with Musab Al-Juwayr, Muath Fagihy, Abdullah Radif and Hamad Al-Yami returning from loan deals.

Al Hilal transfer window rating so far: C

With no signings yet and the €5m sale of Matheus Pereira to Cruzeiro the only notable departure, it’s too early to judge Al Hiilal’s transfer window. That could change soon though as they pursue their top targets with a number of Brazilians including Manchester United’s Casemiro linked with a move to the club.
