Al Nassr Club deals and controversy
The top clubs in the Saudi League continue to make resounding deals and huge sums, and Al Nassr club deals caused controversy. For each Saudi club, It is a desire to pull the rug from other clubs and exclusivity with titles. Recently, the most prominent deals were for the Al Nassr Club. It succeeded in signing Brazilian midfielder Anderson Talisca from China’s Guangzhou. The club had paid the penalty clause in his contract with the support of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. It also signed Cameroonian player Vincent Abubakar from Turkey’s Besiktas.
However, the two deals caused widespread controversy in the Saudi sports arena. This was not only for the value of the duo, but the fact that Al Nassr kidnapped Abu Bakr from Al-Ittihad, and Taliska from Al-Hilal. This angered the fans of the two clubs on their boards of directors.
These deals sparked controversy in the Saudi sports scene. Al-Hilal fans demanded their club to seek to complete huge deals, like Al Nassr’s.
Al Nassr club deals
In fact, Al Nassr was denied in January of new deals. This was due to its failure to obtain a certificate of financial competence from the Saudi Football Association. Actually, this was a punishment for not paying all its football-related debts, whether to clubs, players, former coaches, salaries of current players, employees, and others.
As news spreads about possible Al Nassr deals, sports observers started wondering about the size of the financial balance between Saudi clubs. They questioned the ability of other teams to strike the required balance, and the extent to which this achieves the desired benefit at the level of Saudi sport. The sports scene in Saudi Arabia is witnessing a high indebtedness of clubs and a clear sagging in the results. Therefore, the impact of these deals is not positively reflected, either at the sporting level or even financially. So do the new deals, despite the controversy they have sparked, mark a new beginning? Do they end the financial and technical slack of Al Nassr Club?
