However, the club's second most expensive recruit, who came this summer from Celtic Glasgow for 29 million euros, the Portuguese Jota will be shelved by his club according to information from local media Al Riyadh. His lack of adaptation tipped the scales, but the main reason is more complicated. Saudi clubs are only allowed eight foreign players in their ranks to compete in the championship.
With the arrival of central defender Luiz Felipe, recruited from Betis Sevilla. Karim Benzema, N'Golo Kanté, Romarinho, Abderrazak Hamdallah, Fabinho, Marcelo Grohe, Igor Coronado occupy the non-community places. Jota is therefore deprived of land and has no base. If we mentioned an interest from Al-Shabab who wanted to obtain the loan of the 4-year-old player, the Saudi transfer window has just closed its doors.
