UAE Star Omar Abdulrahman Joins Saudi’s Al Hilal on 1-year Record Loan Fee

Asian Footballer of the Year 2016 winner Omar Abdulrahman has agreed on a 1-year loan deal with Saudi Arabia’s Al-Hilal. According to the Gulf News, the loan deal is reported to be worth €14 million making a regional record fee. Omar has also reported to have turned down a few offers from Europe.

 

This is not the first time Omar plays for the Saudi club as he has previously represented the club at the youth level before moving to UAE with his family. It was also reported in the Middle East that the move was also probably due to the newly introduced salary cap in the Arabia Gulf League in which Al Ain Chairman, Ghanim Al Hajeri also tweeted his disappointment, “To underestimate the value of those who have given so much and then impose restrictions only because they have dreams that they still wish to achieve far from our circle is selfish.”

 

Al Hilal will kick off the defence of their title at the end of the month when they host Al Feiha. Omar will definitely be one of their key players but unfortuntely the UAE star will miss the prestigious FIFA Club World Cup in which Al Ain will be hosting big teams such as Real Madrid.
