Kylian Mbappe has no interest in meeting representatives from Al Hilal to discuss a move to Saudi Arabia.
After the Saudi club made a world-record €300m (£257m) offer for the player on Saturday, PSG has granted Al Hilal permission to engage in talks with Mbappe.
This week, representatives of Al Hilal have been in Paris, but they have not had a meeting with Mbappe’s camp.
According to PSG insiders, the French star is refusing to speak to Al Hilal because he has reportedly already reached an agreement to join Real Madrid as a free agent next summer when his contract expires.
Al Hilal’s offer was contingent upon reaching an agreement on a payment schedule and was also conditional on signing contracts between Al Hilal and both Mbappe and the club.
Reports suggest that Mbappe has reached an agreement with Real Madrid
PSG believes that at least five clubs are interested in signing Mbappe. The offer from Al Hilal is not the sole proposal the French champions have received; they have received offers from other clubs as well.
The France captain, Mbappe, is reportedly attracting interest from several clubs, including Chelsea, Manchester United, Tottenham, Inter Milan, and Barcelona, making it a “hot market” for his services.
PSG is open to considering any offer and all proposals to sell Mbappe. If it were solely up to the French champions, they would prefer to sell him to the highest bidder. However, other clubs may find it challenging to match or surpass the offer made by Al Hilal.
Real Madrid may now find themselves enticed to submit a formal bid for the player to ensure they do not miss out on him again.
PSG remains resolute in retaining Mbappe, particularly given reports that they signed him from Monaco for over £150m.
PSG has made interested clubs aware that they are open to the possibility of loaning out Mbappe for the season.
