The Kylian Mbappe transfer saga has always been full of twists and turns, and it took a significant one recently, with Al-Hilal joining the race to sign the French World Cup winner. Unlike in the past, this time around, Paris Saint-Germain seem to be looking to part ways with the 24-year-old, as there is only a year left on his current deal and they do not want him left as a free agent in the summer of 2024. What could it all mean for Real Madrid?
Rumours suggested that Al-Hilal had submitted a €300 million transfer bid to PSG to sign Mbappe and were ready to offer a world record salary to the player as well. But it appears that the Frenchman is not considering making such a move at this point in his career.
As tweeted out by Fabrizio Romano, Mbappe has rejected the chance to negotiate with Al-Hilal. He currently has no intention to open talks despite the €200 million fixed salary proposal plus 100% image rights. PSG, convinced that the player has agreed terms with Real Madrid.
Thus, it looks like Mbappe has no intention of joining Al-Hilal despite the unbelievable numbers on offer. And now, one has to consider Real Madrid as the firm favourites to sign him.
Fabrizio confirms Mbappe boost for Real Madrid
It is no secret that Mbappe grew up as a supporter of Real Madrid and Cristiano Ronaldo. While a move to Santiago Bernabeu has been rumoured for years, it has never quite materialised.
His PSG exit looks closer now than it has ever before though. It remains to be seen whether that happens this summer or the next one.
Mbappe still has a year left on his contract. While PSG clearly would prefer for him to leave now and bring in a significant transfer fee as a result, the decision will lie with the player. Will Real Madrid make an offer?
