The future of PSG contract rebel and Real Madrid transfer target Kylian Mbappe is the talk of the town after Al Hilal tabled a mammoth €300 million offer for him.

But the forward has refused to hold talks with the Saudi Arabian giants, who had sent delegates to Paris to discuss the transfer, reports Fabrizio Romano.

Mbappe’s current contract with PSG expires in 2024 and he does not intend to renew, while wishing to leave the club for Real Madrid as a free agent next year.

The French champions are dead set against such a move and have put him up for sale this summer after omitting him from their pre-season tour of Asia.

Real Madrid have been touted as Mbappe’s preferred destination, but his situation has attracted a lot of attention, with Saudi Arabian giants Al Hilal making big moves.

Al Hilal’s outrageous offer for Mbappe

As mentioned earlier, Al Hilal have tabled a mammoth €300 million bid for Mbappe, which would blast the world record for transfer fees set by PSG who bought Neymar for €222 million.

On top of that, the Middle East giants are offering the 24-year-old an enormous contract worth €200 million per year as well as allowing him to keep 100% of his image rights.

In addition, the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner would also have the option of leaving the club for Real Madrid whenever he wants, starting from 2024 itself.

PSG, who are eager to get rid of Mbappe, accepted Al Hilal’s €300 million proposal and permitted their delegates to open talks with the attacker.

Mbappe not tempted by Al Hilal’s offer

A delegation from the Saudi Arabian club flew to Paris to negotiate with Mbappe, but the Real Madrid target has refused to hold any talks with them.

The 24-year-old has no desire of signing for Al Hilal and would consider leaving PSG only for the Santiago Bernabeu.

Les Parisiens strongly suspect that the forward already has an agreement with Real Madrid for 2024, which is why they are pushing to offload him right now.

But with Mbappe not wavering from his stance and Los Blancos not making a move either, it will certainly be interesting to see how this saga develops in the coming days.

    They probably tried to trick him into violating the terms of his contract.

Real Madrid attentive to the situation of Serie A marksman, Chelsea, Saudi Arabia also keen

Amid signs of trouble brewing between Napoli and their ace goalscorer Victor Osimhen, Real Madrid are keeping a close eye on the Nigerian hitman’s situation, reports the Daily Mail.

The 24-year-old was one of the pioneers of Napoli’s Serie A title triumph during the 2022/23 season. But the relationship between the player and the club appears to have taken a hit over the past few days.

All is not well between Osimhen and Napoli

It all started with a distasteful video mocking Osimhen’s penalty miss during the game against Bologna that was posted on Napoli’s official TikTok account.

While the club took down the video soon after, it has not gone down too well with the 24-year-old or his entourage.

In fact, Osimhen’s agent even hinted at a possible legal proceeding against the Partenopei for the social media blunder.

The striker was in action for the club’s game against Udinese last night and even scored a goal, but was in no mood to celebrate.

Real Madrid attentive

Given the recent developments, Real Madrid are understood to have taken a note of the situation and are keeping a close eye on the matter.

The Merengues had been linked with a move for Osimhen during the summer transfer window as well, although nothing came of it.

But with the lack of a natural striker beyond Joselu becoming an issue, the Napoli hitman could become an option either in January or in the summer, if he decides to part ways with the Serie A giants.

Apart from Real Madrid, though, clubs from Saudi Arabia are also looking at Osimhen and would be willing to throw cash at him just like they did with several top stars during the summer window.

Chelsea, too, have an interest in Osimhen although they could find it difficult to sign him in January unless they make some cuts to their squad.

It remains to be seen if this leads to anything in the coming months but for now Real Madrid are closely watching the situation surrounding Osimhen.
