Amid the ongoing uncertainty on the future of Kylian Mbappe, Basketball star Giannis Antetokumpo has taken to twitter to make a hilarious reaction to an offer from a Suadi Pro League club.
Following reports of Al Hilal tabling a staggering offer of $776 million yearly for Kylian Mbappe, it appeared Giannis was blown away by the offer.
He took to twitter to express his shock by jokingly implying that he is the doppelganger of Kylian Mbappe and Al Hilal can come sign him.
Giannis Antetokumpo tweet on Kylian Mbappe
The Greek-Nigerian shared a post on twitter, with the caption: “Al Hilal you can take me. I look like Kylian Mbappe”
Kylian Mbappe, whose mind looks clouded with a lot also quoted the tweet with several laughing emojis.
Reports have circulated in the past 24 – 48 hours of a mammoth deal being offered by Al Hilal to lure Mbappe to the Saudi Pro League.
The deal is set to be for one season afterwards the Frenchman can join Real Madrid next summer and it is valued to the tune of about €300 million.
Recall that there has also been rumors of Paris Saint Germain tabling a €1 billion contract to Kylian Mbappe, with the intention of keeping him at the Parc Des Princes for the next 10 years.
However, PSG also believe that the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner has his mind faraway from Paris as they believe he has reportedly agreed a deal in principle with Real Madrid.
This neverending brouhaha has generated lots of reactions across board with many being on different side of the divide.
Anyway, irrespective of the divide you are on, Paris Saint Germain apparently do not want to lose Kylian Mbappe for free.
In light of these reality, they have slapped a huge asking price for the Frenchman and several clubs who are interested in Kylian Mbappe have began to send in offers.
Al Hilal tabled a staggering offer for Kylian Mbappe
One of the clubs that has reached out for Mbappe this summer is reportedly Al Hilal, a club that Lionel Messi snubbed to join MLS side Inter Miami.
The amount being offered to get his services has attracted the attention of many, including obviously Giannis Antetokumpo.
Giannis led the Milwaukee Bucks to the 2021 NBA title and he won the NBA Finals MVP for that year.
The 28-year-old is a big fan of football and has previously revealed his desire to be a footballer, if he hadn’t become a basketball player.
Giannis Antetokumpo’s late dad reportedly played football in Nigeria and he initially wanted to follow in that path before he fell in love with Basketball.
In March 2023, the Greek-Nigerian became a minority owner in MLS club Nashville SC alongside his brothers Alex, Kostas and Thanasis.
The Milwaukee Bucks superstar was also seen at the San Siro relishing a Champions League encounter involving Inter And Bayern Munich last year.
Other Basketball stars also had their reactions on the matter
Several basketball stars have also had their own reactions on the staggering amount flying across the space.
Golden State Warriors’ Draymond Green wrote: “They got basketball leagues too right? I don’t the ink on my contract has dried up yet.”
Portland Trail Blazers, Damian Lilliard also added: “One year, 776mm? Wtf lol.”
Even NBA great LeBron James also revealed that he will be heading to Saudi Arabia if he would be accompanied by Rich Paul and Maverick Carter.
LeBron wrote: “Me headed to Saudi when they call @RichPaul4 & @mavcarter for that 1 year deal! ✌🏾🤷🏾♂️😁”
