NEYMAR has been axed from Al-Hilal's squad after his most recent injury.
The star forward suffered a serious knee injury last month while on International duty with Brazil.
The 31-year-old was hurt during a 2026 World Cup qualifier against Uruguay at the Centenario Stadium and was carried out on a stretcher as he broke down in tears.
The Brazil international went under the knife earlier this month and is expected to be out until September.
That means Neymar is highly likely to miss the rest of the season with the Saudi Pro League leaders.
Therefore, according to Record, Al-Hilal chiefs have decided to suspend the ex-Paris Saint-Germain superstar's registration.

Al-Hilal reached an initial £77.6million deal with PSG for the Brazilian who is set to make £314m over the next two years.
In fact, the Santos legend is now in line to pocket £107m from his club while injured.
