The stakes in the most recent Kylian Mbappe transfer drama have never been higher in terms of the sheer amount of money, and it has caused a significant uproar in European sport. Additionally, a touch of Middle Eastern spice has recently been introduced. Kylian Mbappe is apparently the target of a 300 million euros offer from Al-Hilal, which would make him the most expensive player in history following Real Madrid's ongoing quest to sign him. The matter was further hyped up when the club did not include the forward in the pre-season tour to Japan.

In June, it came to light that Mbappé had formally informed PSG he will not exercise his right to a one-year contract extension next summer. The following month, the club's position was made clear by its president, Nasser al-Khelaifi, who said: "If Kylian wants to stay, we want him to stay. However, he must sign a new contract. We can't afford to lose the finest player in the world for free.

The 24-year-old and PSG have had problems, to put it mildly, communicating. Numerous clubs have been fighting to steal the World Cup winner away from PSG, the club representing the capital city of Paris, in the ongoing transfer window in order to bolster their rosters. The first team to seize the chance and keep pursuing Mbappe was Real Madrid. It was and still is asserted that the Frenchman has already reached a personal understanding with Los Blancos and is prepared to sign a deal there.

Al-Hilal is one of four teams in the nation owned by Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund. Fabrizio Romano claimed that the Saudi giants have submitted a formal bid for Mbappe as part of an extravagant spending spree by teams in Saudi Arabia. According to reports, the transaction would cost 300 million euros, surpassing the 222 million euros that PSG forked over to acquire Brazilian superstar Neymar in 2017.

If Kylian Mbappe chooses to accept this offer, he will join the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Alex Telles, Kalidou Koulibaly, Rúben Neves, N’Golo Kante and many more in the Saudi Pro League.
