Report: Mbappe refuses to negotiate with Al-Hilal despite mega offer
Kylian Mbappe has refused to meet with representatives from Al-Hilal despite being offered a base salary of €200 million to play for the Saudi Pro League team, according to transfer insider Fabrizio Romano.
A delegation from the Saudi club arrived in Paris hoping to speak with the striker after getting permission from Paris Saint-Germain, who accepted a world-record €300-million transfer bid.
Mbappe, whose contract at PSG expires next year, has no intention of joining Al-Hilal, Romano adds.
Along with a €200-million salary for a one-year deal, Al-Hilal reportedly promised to give Mbappe up to €700 million in revenue generated from their use of his image and likeness.
PSG believe that Mbappe has an agreement to join Real Madrid on a free transfer when his contract ends in June 2024, Romano reports.
Mbappe declared in June that he intends to fulfill the final year of his contract and play for PSG during the 2023-24 season.
After he refused to commit his future to PSG and trigger the one-year extension in his current deal, the Ligue 1 side dropped Mbappe from its preseason tour of Asia and forced him to train with the reserves.
The 12-month clause in Mbappe contract expires at the end of July.
PSG are reportedly prepared to bench Mbappe for the entire season if he isn't sold this summer. A loan move away from the French capital is another possibility, with several clubs believed to be interested in signing Mbappe to a temporary deal.
After PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi's ultimatum to Mbappe over his future at the club, French footballers' union UNFP came to the World Cup winner's defense, describing the club's treatment of him as "moral harassment."
The 24-year-old scored 41 goals in all competitions for PSG last season. He has 397 goal involvements for club and country during his illustrious career.
