The Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid rumours have just refused to go away over the past several years and now, the Frenchman looks closer to the Paris Saint-Germain exit door than he has ever before. His current deal with the club runs until the summer of 2024 and the Ligue 1 champions have made their stance very clear.
PSG want Mbappe to either extend his contract or leave in the ongoing summer transfer window. The player holds most of the cards right now though, with just a year left on his deal.
Real Madrid are believed to be the favourites to sign Mbappe, whether he leaves PSG this summer or the next one. There are other clubs in the running as well though.
As reported by the Mirror, Al-Hilal are believed to have offered Mbappe a deal worth €200million per year. This contract would be provisionally a two-year deal but would be further sweetened by the allowance of a ‘Real Madrid exit clause’ after 12 months.

It remains to be seen what the future holds for Mbappe. But the Al-Hilal option cannot be ruled out at this point of time.
It is believed that Mbappe wants to see out his contract at PSG before joining a new club next summer. But that would mean that the French champions would miss out on a monumental transfer fee, which they do not want to let happen.
A move to Al-Hilal might be the perfect bridge. It would allow PSG to receive a transfer fee out of Mbappe’s exit, for the player himself to land a significant but short deal and ultimately end up at a top European club a year or two later. Let’s see how things play out but it does make a lot of sense for all parties.
