Kylian Mbappe’s future in football continues to be a hot topic of discussion, as the 24-year-old French striker explores potential transfer options. Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) has reportedly given the green light for talks, effectively putting Mbappe up for sale after he refused to sign a one-year contract extension, leaving the possibility of him departing on a free transfer.
While PSG believes that Real Madrid has an agreement in place for Mbappe’s move next summer, they are keen on securing an immediate transfer. As a result, the big-spending Saudi Pro League club, Al-Hilal, has emerged as a strong contender for his signature. Al-Hilal is reportedly ready to break the world transfer record by offering €300 million in transfer fees and an unprecedented salary package to the star player.
According to AS, Mbappe’s entourage has been enticed by Al-Hilal’s offer, leading to the striker “flirting” with the Saudi Pro League club. Talks between the parties have already commenced, but there are two potential hurdles to overcome in the negotiations.
Firstly, Mbappe is said to prefer a one-year contract with Al-Hilal, while the club is keen on a two-season deal to keep the door open for a potential move to Real Madrid next summer.
Secondly, the financial aspects of the deal could be a point of contention. Al-Hilal is willing to invest €700 million in total to secure Mbappe’s services, combining his transfer fee and wages. However, Mbappe’s camp is pushing for a larger share of that sum, aiming for him to receive “as close to €500 million as possible,” which would leave PSG with only €200 million.
Real Madrid, on the other hand, has reportedly stated their unwillingness to engage in talks with PSG over Mbappe. As negotiations between Al-Hilal and Mbappe continue, the football world awaits the outcome of this high-stakes transfer saga.
