Saudi giants Al-Hilal have submitted a shocking €300m formal bid to sign Kylian Mbappe from PSG this summer
Al Hilal’s offer is coming at the peak of the tensed relationship between Kylian and PSG over contract renewal.
Futballnews understands Kylian Mbappe is not ready to renew his PSG contract and has submitted a letter to remind the club of his decision not to renew the deal in 2024.
His letter has driven the two parties further apart. PSG believe Mbappe have reached a secret agreement with Real Madrid to join the Spanish club next summer as a free agent – a move the Ligue 1 giants have vehemently opposed.
PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi have insisted Kylian Mbappe will not be allowed to leave the club for free. The club have maintained if Mbappe is not ready to renew his deal, then he will be sold this summer.
The two parties are at irreconcilable ends in the faceoff. Mbappe wants to stay till next summer when he must have run out his contract with PSG so that he he can leave for free to Real Madrid while PSG are insisting he cannot be allowed to play for the club for one more season and allowed to leave for free.
Amid the rancour between Mbappe and PSG, Al Hilal are now stepping in as a third force in the conflict and will definitely twist the possible outcome of the unfolding drama.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Al Hilal have tabled their first formal official bid to sign Kylian Mbappe – an offer worth €300m
The Saudi giants are ready to open talks for Kylian Mbappe in the coming days but it has been confirmed there is no talks yet with Kylian Mbappe.
Interestingly, Al Hilal’s formal bid to PSG for Kylian Mbappe beats PSG’s asking price for the player which was reportedly pecked at €200m.
It is expected PSG will enter into talks with Al Hilal for Mbappe. The club have maintained they will listen to offers for Mbappe if he is not ready to sign a new contract.
Meanwhile, they have dropped him from the club’s preseason tour in Japan and have considered him out of the PSG project, ready to be sold.
In response, sources close to Mbappe have revealed the French star is planning to sit out on the bench throughout next season before leaving the club.
It is understood Kylian Mbappe will not want to join Al Hilal in Saudi Arabia despite a reported clause in his contract offer which will allow him to join Real Madrid after one year.
While PSG will accept Al Hilal’s offer for Kylian Mbappe, it is understood Mbappe may not agree terms with the Saudi giants despite the overbloated offer.
According to reports, PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi has revealed he will try to ask Mbappe to leave the club if he is not renewing his contract as he said in his exit letter as the club hopes to recoup the €178m they spent in signing him from Monaco.
What is your thought? Should Mbappe stay or leave for Al Hilal?
