Kylian Mbappe has responded with amusement to the offer made by the Saudi Arabian football team Al-Hilal. However, it’s worth noting that his laughter was directed at a meme posted by Giannis Antetokounmpo, a National Basketball Association (NBA) player representing the Milwaukee Bucks. In the meme, Antetokounmpo humorously claimed, “Al Hilal, you can take me. I look like Kylian Mbappe.”
Amidst reports of a €300-million (₹2,718 crores) offer from Al-Hilal to Paris Saint Germain (PSG) for the renowned football star Kylian Mbappe, the situation took a lighthearted turn with Giannis Antetokounmpo’s playful “offer” and Mbappe’s laughter in response. The NBA player, who represents the Milwaukee Bucks, shared a meme that humorously suggested that Al-Hilal could take him as he resembled Kylian Mbappe. The timing of this exchange adds a touch of humor to the ongoing speculation surrounding the footballer’s potential transfer.
Kylian Mbappe has informed Paris Saint Germain (PSG) that he will not be exercising a 12-month extension on his contract. Despite this decision, he has assured the club that he will be present at Parc des Princes for the upcoming season. PSG is resolute in ensuring that Mbappe does not leave for free after the following season, which means he must either agree to a new contract or be sold before his current one concludes.
With Paris Saint Germain (PSG) making Kylian Mbappe available for transfer, Al-Hilal has shown keen interest in acquiring the services of the French striker during the summer transfer window. Al-Hilal is determined to avoid missing out on another significant signing from PSG, having previously failed to secure Lionel Messi’s signature.
In their ambitious pursuit of Kylian Mbappe, Al-Hilal has put forward a remarkable offer of €300 million (₹2,718 crore) to secure the services of the PSG star. Should Mbappe decide to move to Al-Hilal, he will join Cristiano Ronaldo in the Saudi league, adding further star power to the football scene in the region.
Suppose Kylian Mbappe accepts the bid from the Saudi club. In that case, it will mark the most expensive transfer in the history of club football, surpassing the astonishing $262 million (₹2,144 crores) deal that brought Neymar from Barcelona to PSG in 2017. This potential transfer would set a new record for transfer fees and further solidify Mbappe’s status as one of the sport’s most sought-after and valuable players.
In the latest updates, PSG has given Al-Hilal the green light to directly negotiate with Kylian Mbappe for what could be a record-breaking deal. Notably, the Saudi Pro League has put forth an astonishing €700 million (₹6,341 crores) proposal for just one year to entice the Frenchman. However, despite this alluring offer, Mbappe can depart from PSG and join Real Madrid in 2024 as a free agent. It is worth noting that in 2022, Mbappe publicly expressed his desire to be a part of Real Madrid.
