EXCL: Mbappe Al Hilal latest, another PSG star targeted by Saudi, plus latest on key Tottenham and West Ham targets
My latest exclusive column, featuring fresh details on the Kylian Mbappe saga.
Kylian Mbappe snubs Al Hilal…for now
I can confirm that Kylian Mbappe has decided not to negotiate with Al Hilal, as first called by L’Equipe. This is the decision of the player as of today, so let’s see if it changes or not, but for now he has decided not to meet with the Saudi delegation in Paris.
To reiterate, Al Hilal have offered €200m guaranteed salary for one year plus commercial deals, and 100% of the image rights to the player - a package of €700m to the player in just one season. This was a huge, historical proposal, but Mbappe’s position today is that he doesn’t want to sit down and negotiate with any Saudi club, in this case Al Hilal. Let’s see if Al Hilal will stay in Paris and try to negotiate again or try offering a different deal, but sources feel that Mbappe wants to continue in Europe.
