The journalist, Hammoud Al-Qahtani, has revealed the truth about the intention of Mateus Pereira, the player of the Saudi club Al-Hilal, to leave the castle of Al-Zaeem in the near future.

And Mateus Pereira had photos of him removed in the Al Hilal shirt last week, hinting at his imminent departure from the Saudi club.

Al-Qahtani wrote on his official Twitter account: “Everything circulating about Pereira’s departure from the team is false.”

He added: “The player will be the first to arrive at the Al Hilal camp, God willing.”

Alexander, the father of Brazilian player Mateos Pereira, brought up the controversy again, as he posted on social media that Pereira was about to move to Brazilian club Botafogo.

And the “fogaonet” website quoted Pereira’s father as saying in a video clip of him circulating to Botafogo fans: “It’s almost over, there may be little left,” indicating the deal is nearing completion.

Earlier reports reported that Brazilian club Botafogo is having a hard time in Pereira, due to Al Hilal’s refusal to neglect the player. The Brazilian club tried to loan the player with the buy option, but Al Hilal is not facilitating Matthews’ exit.

Pereira joined Al Hilal in the summer of 2021, amid great interest from English clubs to take over the player, who hails from West Bromwich Albion, in a deal estimated at around £18million.

Pereira played 34 matches with Al Hilal in various competitions, scoring 3 goals and scoring 15 goals.

The 26-year-old plays in the attacking midfield having previously played for Sporting Lisbon in 2010, and during his time with the Portuguese club he was loaned out to several clubs such as Chaves, Nuremberg and West Bromwich Albion.

The Brazilian player won the Asian Champions League 2021, the Saudi Super Cup 2022 and most recently the Professional Cup 2022 with Al Hilal.

This season, Al Hilal won the Professional Cup League for the third time in a row, the 18th win and 65th championship in its history, beating Al-Ittihad in the final rounds of last season.
