In a deal that entered history as the second most expensive loan deal in the history of football, UAE star Omar Abdul Rahman "Amouri" moved to Al Hilal Saudi Club, for one season on loan.
Yousef al-Ghaith, Ammouri's agent, said in a letter via Snab Chat: "Congratulations to Amouri Hilali," confirming what the media reported about the transfer of the star of the UAE team to the Saudi league.
After completing the deal for 14 million euros, Amory entered history, becoming the second most expensive player in history for one season, after Gonzalo Higuain, who was loaned from Juventus to AC Milan a few weeks ago, for 18 million euros.
According to Eurosport Arabia, Amouri, 26, became the most expensive player in the Gulf to move from one club to another. His agent also confirmed that Al Ain won 45 million Saudi riyals and 15 million riyals.
