Al Hilal Makes £259m Offer For Mbappe

Saudi Arabian side Al Hilal have made a world record £259m (300m Euros) bid for Paris St-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe.

The 24-year-old France captain, who has a year left on his contract, has refused to sign an extension at the French champions and was not selected for their pre-season tour to Japan.

PSG want to sell Mbappe now rather than risk letting him leave for free next summer.

Neymar’s £200m move from Barcelona to PSG in 2017 is the current record.

PSG activated Brazil forward Neymar’s release clause to make him the most expensive player in the world.

Should he move, Mbappe will have commanded two of the three highest fees paid for a player after joining PSG from Monaco for £166m in 2017.

Chelsea, Manchester United, Tottenham, Inter Milan and Barcelona have all expressed an interest in Mbappe, who has previously said he intends to leave PSG for free at the end of next season.
