French football star Kylian Mbappe has reportedly turned down talks with Al Hilal, the Saudi Arabian club, over a potential move to the Middle East. Instead, there are growing fears within Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) that the talented forward is considering a free transfer to Real Madrid when his contract expires at the end of the upcoming season.
Al Hilal officials traveled to Paris with hopes of enticing Mbappe to join their ranks and presented PSG with a staggering € 300 million euros ($332.6-million US dollars) offer for the services of the France international and current PSG captain.
However, Mbappe has opted not to pursue discussions with Al Hilal and, as things stand, has not extended his contract with PSG. This decision has led the French champions to place the 24-year-old player on the transfer list, actively looking for potential suitors in the football market.
As Mbappe’s contract enters its final year, the prospect of him leaving PSG on a free transfer next summer has sparked speculations about a possible move to Real Madrid.
The Spanish giants have long been linked with the young football sensation, and his contract situation adds further fuel to the rumors of a potential transfer to Madrid.
With Mbappe’s future still uncertain and the anticipation of a high-profile transfer saga, football fans around the world are closely monitoring the developments, eager to see where the talented striker will end up in the upcoming season.
