The bid for Mbappe would make him the most expensive football player in history, overtaking the €236.5 million PSG paid for Neymar, who joined from Barcelona in 2017.
Ednews informs via Euronews that after missing out on Lionel Messi, Saudi Arabian football team Al-Hilal made a record €300 million bid for Kylian Mbappe on Monday, an offer which could see the France striker join Cristiano Ronaldo in the oil-rich kingdom.
Paris Saint-Germain confirmed the offer for its player and has permitted Al-Hilal to open negotiations directly with Mbappe.
The 2018 World Cup winner is in a contract standoff with PSG after his decision not to take up the option of a 12-month extension on his deal. Instead, he plans to walk away as a free agent at the end of the upcoming season when he is widely expected to join Real Madrid.
