Kylian Mbappe is football’s hottest market prospect at the moment by quite some distance.

With the French sensation towards the tail end of his contract with PSG and seemingly firm about his desire to leave the club, teams across the world are in the race to secure his signing.

Saudi Arabia, unsurprisingly, has representation on board as well, after all, The middle-east based League has been snapping up some of Europe’s finest football talents this summer and hopes to win over Mbappe’s will through its economic pull.

Earlier this week, Al Hilal’s jaw-dropping proposal for the PSG star was revealed and stunned the world.

The Saudi-based club were reportedly willing to spend €300 million for the French star in transfer fees in addition to offering him a salary of €200 million with sponsorships.

Al Hilal still trying to convince Mbappe

Mbappe refused the offer without batting an eye at the time, but Fabrizio Romano reports that Al Hilal are far from done.

According to the Italian journalist, they have tried to further improve their bid in the last 24 to 48 hours to change his mind. Yet, the World Cup winner’s answer remains in the negative.

It is no secret that the PSG star sees Real Madrid as the next stage in his career.

The Merengues have been involved in his pursuit for years now, but his contractual situation makes the conditions amicable for an immediate transfer now.

The Parisiens demand a fee of at least €250 million for their star winger this summer, but that number is said to exceed what Real Madrid are willing to splash.

With negotiations likely to begin in the coming days, via intermediaries, it will be interesting to see how the two parties mend their bridges.

Mbappe is currently not training with Luis Enrique’s side after being dropped from the preseason squad on the tour to Asia.

PSG have made it clear that he will only be incorporated into the setup once he makes a binding decision about his future – either to renew and stay or to leave immediately.
