Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe has attracted a massive offer from Al-Hilal, prompting five prominent European clubs to vie for his signature.
Al-Hilal made a staggering bid of €300 million (£259m/$333m) for Mbappe, setting a new world record, and now top Premier League teams, including Chelsea, Manchester United, and Tottenham, along with European giants Barcelona and Inter Milan, have expressed interest in acquiring the talented PSG star, as reported by The Telegraph.
PSG’s decision to put Mbappe up for sale and exclude him from their pre-season tour squad has cast doubt on his future at the club.
With just one year left on his contract and his hesitance to sign a new one, reports suggest that he has already reached an agreement to join Real Madrid for free next summer. PSG has made it clear that they prioritize players committed to the club.
Amidst an extraordinary spending spree this summer by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund, Al-Hilal’s audacious move for the French striker is the latest attempt to bolster the kingdom’s league and enhance its global presence.
The Saudi Pro League has experienced a significant surge in investment after the Public Investment Fund took full control of four top clubs, including Al-Hilal.
