Mbappe Shuts Down Al Hilal Negotiations Over Mega €300 Million Transfer

Kylian Mbappe Rejects Meeting with Al Hilal, Dashing Hopes of Record Transfer

Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) striker Kylian Mbappe has declined a meeting with officials from Saudi Arabian club Al Hilal, dealing a significant blow to their attempt to secure a world record €300 million ($333 million) transfer. The French star’s representatives have refused to engage in any discussions with Al Hilal’s delegation, which arrived in Paris to finalize the transfer of Brazilian winger Malcom from Zenit Saint Petersburg. L’Equipe sports daily reported that Mbappe’s “entourage” rejected the Saudi club’s approach, stating that the French captain has never considered the option.

Despite Mbappe showing no interest in a move to the rapidly growing Saudi league, PSG had given Al Hilal permission to open talks with the player. With only one year left on his contract, PSG wants him to leave now rather than for free next summer. The club believes that Mbappe has already reached an agreement to join Real Madrid next year, with the Spanish club hoping to acquire him without paying PSG for his services. The tense situation between Mbappe and PSG escalated when he was left out of the squad for the team’s tour of Japan and South Korea.

Mbappe, who is PSG’s all-time top scorer with 212 goals in 260 appearances, remains the second most expensive player in history, after his teammate Neymar. The young forward initially joined PSG as a teenager on a season-long loan from Monaco in 2017, which was made permanent the following year in a €180 million deal. Since then, he has proven himself as one of the most talented players in the world.

However, the departure of Lionel Messi at the end of last season to join MLS franchise Inter Miami has left PSG without their superstar trio. Despite the presence of Mbappe, Neymar, and Messi, PSG was eliminated in the Champions League last 16 stage by Bayern Munich in the previous season, although they were able to secure the French title.

Al Hilal, owned by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF), has been active in the transfer market this summer, adding players such as central defender Kalidou Koulibaly from Chelsea and midfielder Ruben Neves from Wolves to bolster their squad.
