Saudi Arabia offer world record fee and a two-year deal worth €400m for Real Madrid target

The situation between Kylian Mbappe and Paris Saint-Germain has never been more volatile. The French club is doing everything in its capacity to ensure that the youngster either renews his deal or leaves this summer, but Mbappe sits firm on his desire to stay.

The World Cup winner plans to join Real Madrid on a free transfer in 2024, thus securing a loyalty bonus from PSG and a signing-on bonus from his new club. The Ligue 1 side disagree and do not see a departure for free to be a feasible option.

According to reports earlier today, PSG are now willing to listen to offers from any party interested. While there is solid interest from Real Madrid and the Premier League, Saudi Arabia has emerged as the latest entrant.

French outlet L’Equipe report that the offer from Saudi Arabia for Mbappe is much higher than the whopping €222 million PSG paid for Neymar Jr. It is thus a world record bid and appeals to the offices at Parc des Princes.

Fabrice Hawkins adds that Al-Hilal offer Mbappe a salary of €400 million over two years as part of the proposal. Further, they would let him sign for Real Madrid in 2024 if he wishes so.

The 24-year-old has been left out of PSG’s preseason squad travelling to Japan and is currently training with the other club outcasts in Paris. The club have made it clear that he will not play for them again until he reveals his final decision.

Mbappe thus has a critical decision to take. He is strictly opposed to signing a renewal, but the option of moving to Saudi Arabia for one season before signing for his dream club is unlikely to appeal to him either.

Real Madrid will continue monitoring the situation from afar and will only make their move once there is more clarity.

Real Madrid enjoyed strong representation at the recently concluded European Championship and Copa America.

Dani Carvajal is the only player who returned with silverware, but it is safe to say that all the team’s stars on international duty put up displays to be proud of.

The attention now turns towards the season that lies ahead. Carlo Ancelotti and co. have already begun working ahead of the new campaign, and the internationals will begin rejoining training in the coming week, as relayed by MARCA.

The early returnees

Having suffered an early elimination in the Euro with Croatia, Luka Modric is set to return to training as early as the beginning of the coming week.

The veteran recently renewed his contract with the club and will be looking to prove that he still has it on his feet.

The team’s new signing, Endrick, will join forces with Los Blancos on Wednesday as he begins a new chapter in his short, yet illustrious career so far. All eyes will be on his official signing and presentation.

Meanwhile, Arda Güler and Antonio Rudiger are expected to return to training under Ancelotti towards the end of the week.

The late entries

Players who progressed relatively deeper into the recently concluded tournaments have understandably been granted a longer vacation, and both the French and English representatives of the club enjoy that luxury.

Needless to say, no specific date has been set for their return, considering that their campaign in the Euro ran deep into July.

The team’s Copa America stars, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, and Eder Militão, meanwhile, will report to training on July 31st. Federico Valverde, who finished third with Uruguay, will likely enjoy a longer hiatus.
