Kylian Mbappe turns down record offer from Al Hilaltext_fields
New Delhi: Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) player Kylian Mbappe has turned down a world-record offer of 259 million pounds (300 million euro) from Saudi Arabia’s most successful football club Al Hilal.
Representatives of the Arab club were in Paris this week trying to convince the French striker, but he refused any discussion with them.
The 24-year-old French captain, who still has one year remaining on his contract with PSG, is unwilling to renew his contract and is believed to prefer a move to Real Madrid as a free transfer.
The French star was also left out of the PSG squad for the pre-season tour of Japan and South Korea.
Mbappe has long been linked with Real Madrid and his desire to join the Spanish giants has caused a rift with his current employers.
PSG is eager to prevent losing Mbappe on a free transfer and, as a result, they have decided to put him up for sale to recoup the approximate £150 million they invested to secure his permanent transfer from Monaco back in 2018.
