Paris Saint-Germain ‘ACCEPT £259MILLION bid for Kylian Mbappe’ from Al-Hilal, as PSG chief Nasser Al-Khelaifi ‘allows Saudi side to speak to French superstar’ after he’s left out of club’s pre-season tour
Paris Saint-Germain have ‘accepted a £259 million bid from Al Hilal for French striker Kylian Mbappe’.
Mbappe had been excepted to leave since refusing to sign a contract extension at the club and could now join the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo in the Middle East.
According to reports from Sky Sports, the 24-year-old has been given permission to speak to the Saudi club after leaving him out of the squad for their pre-season tour of Japan and South Korea.
News of the bid first filtered through earlier on Monday, and PSG were always likely to accept to avoid Mbappe leaving the club for free when his contract expires next summer.
It remains to be seen if the striker will be willing to join the Saudi side, as he has long been keen on a move to Real Madrid.
If completed, the deal will eclipse Neymar’s £198m move from Barcelona to PSG as the most expensive transfer in football history.
The offer on the table would reportedly see Mbappe earning a staggering £600m each year.
