SPL raid Man City for commercial exec

Saudi Arabia have made another major behind the scenes signing to show their intent.

The Saudi Pro League has seen billions invested into its teams by the nation's Public Investment Fund.

That funding is set to continue, with Manchester City's top commercial executive heading to Saudi, per The Mirror.

Al-Hilal are appointing City's chief commercial officer Esteve Calzada on a long-term contract.

Calzada has been with City for the past 12 years, but appears to have been tempted away.

Calzada, who began his career at Barcelona, has a close relationship with City boss Pep Guardiola.
