PSG have reportedly agreed to sell their star striker Kylian Mbappe to Saudi Arabian club Al Hilal for a staggering €300 million, breaking the world record for the most expensive transfer in football history.

Mbappe, who has been linked with a move to Real Madrid for several months, has only one year left on his contract with the French champions and has refused to sign an extension. PSG are keen to cash in on the 24-year-old World Cup winner, who scored 41 goals in 43 games last season before he becomes a free agent next summer.

According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Al Hilal have submitted a formal bid of 300 million euros (259 million pounds) to PSG and have been given permission to open talks with Mbappe and his representatives. The Saudi club, which are owned by the Public Investment Fund (PiF), the sovereign wealth fund of Saudi Arabia, are willing to offer Mbappe a salary of € 700 million for one season.

According to Sky Sports, PSG have accepted the offer and given the green light to Al-Hilal to formally approach the player. It will now be all up to Mbappe if he wants to go to Saudi Arabia even for one season for that amount of money or stay in Europe. If he decides to go to Saudi Arabia, the contract offered by Al-Hilal is for only one year after which he can come back to Europe for free.

The Saudi Pro League has already attracted some of the world's best players this summer, such as Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, and N'Golo Kante. The league is expected to become one of the most competitive and lucrative in the world, as well as a platform for promoting Saudi Arabia's image and influence globally.
