Saudi Pro League club Al Hilal has made a $332 million offer to Paris Saint-Germain for the transfer of star striker Kylian Mbappe, according to a report by Fabrizio Romano on Monday.
If accepted, Mbappé could earn up to $776 million for playing just one year in Saudi Arabia, according to CBS Sports.
Paris Saint-Germain is currently in Japan for their pre-season tour, but left Mbappe behind amid an ongoing contract dispute between the player and the club.
In June, Mbappé told the club in a letter that he does not plan to exercise the option in his contract for the 2024-25 season. That would technically allow Mbappé to sign with whatever club he wants next summer, but PSG president Nasser al-Khelaifi has already said the club cannot let the 24-year-old leave for nothing.
A $332 million offer is something, to say the least, but the players who have left Europe for Saudi Arabia don’t exactly fit Mbappe’s profile. While the Saudi Pro League has attracted stars since Cristiano Ronaldo joined the league in January, most of them have been older players coming off their prime, including France teammates Karim Benzema and N’Golo Kante.
Most likely, Mbappé is still waiting for Real Madrid to make him an offer that PSG cannot refuse. Mbappé grew up as a fan of the Spanish club and was in talks to join in May 2022. He ultimately decided to sign a three-year contract extension with PSG.
