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 youngster Mario Martin finds himself at an interesting juncture in his fledgeling career.

The midfield prospect is well-liked at the club after impressing with Castilla in the past two seasons while first-team manager Carlo Ancelotti is also an admirer of the player.

While Martin seems to have reached the end of his cycle in Castilla, a spot in the first-team squad is not necessarily available right away, unless Dani Ceballos ends up leaving.

Plenty of interest in Mario Martin

Now, The Athletic reports that Mario Martin is a player in demand in La Liga with half the teams in the Spanish top flight eager to sign him up this summer.

As has already been reported, Real Valladolid and RCD Espanyol are understood to have shown a strong interest in the 20-year-old midfield talent.

However, it appears that there are a plethora of other clubs in La Liga who would be happy to sign Martin from Real Madrid in the current transfer window.

Martin wants to stay

But, the report states Martin is leaning towards staying put at Real Madrid at this point even though the prospects of regular first-team minutes are highly unlikely.

The 20-year-old, who has made four senior appearances for Los Blancos thus far, has a contract that runs until the summer of 2026.

Real Madrid, for their part, are not necessarily ruling out a sale provided a good offer comes along.

Even if they do part ways with Martin, the Spanish capital club would very much likely insert an affordable buyback clause as they have been doing in recent times for departing youth players.
