Real Madrid and Bayern Munich target goalkeeper Yassine Bounou or Bono joined Saudi Pro League side Al Hilal.
The Morocco super goalie signed a three-year contract at Neymar’s new club right after his now-former club Sevilla was defeated by Manchester City in the UEFA Super Cup.
Al Hilal’s detailed deal to sign Bono
“The Atlantic lion is our goalie,” Al Hilal posted on Twitter, or X.
The terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Spanish media reported Al Hilal would pay €21 million ($22.8 million) and the shot-stopper will earn a €10m salary.
32-year-old Bono, Sevilla’s first-choice goalkeeper, helped the Spanish team win two Europa League titles and Morocco to reach last year’s World Cup semifinals in Qatar.
He had been reportedly a target for Real Madrid and Bayern Munich as a temporary stand-in for the injured Thibaut Courtois and Manuel Neuer.
Al Hilal continued the heavy recruit
Al Hilal look like a decent side this season, as they have secured Brazil superstar Neymar from PSG with a lucrative sum of 320m euro package.
They are recognized as the most successful club in Saudi Arabia and Asia, having won 66 trophies, including 18 domestic league titles and four Asian Champions League crowns.
The club reappointed Portuguese coach Jorge Jesus on a one-year deal and signed former Wolverhampton Wanderers captain Ruben Neves, Serbia’s Sergei Milinkovic-Savic, Senegal defender Kalidou Koulibaly and Brazilian striker Malcom.
Al Hilal will host Al Feiha in the next round of the Saudi Pro League on Saturday.
Mitrovic and Lucas Digne are two signings that are rumored to join Al Hilal very soon.
