Paris Saint Germain are ready to accept a massive 200m euro offer from Saudi side Al-Hilal for Kylian Mbappe this summer after leaving him out of their pre-season tour of Japan, it has emerged.
The French giants have been rocked by the news that the Frenchman intends to leave the club on a free transfer next summer, having told PSG that he doesn’t want to exercise the extension option in his contract.
Having only penned fresh terms last summer, Mbappe will be a free agent next summer, and the French champions have no intention to let him leave for nothing after paying £170m to sign him from Monaco.
As per French outlet RMC Sport, they will not accept any offer or negotiate for Mbappe’s sale until August 1st, which is when the option to extend his contract officially expires.
After that, however, they will listen to any offers and Saudi side Al-Hilal are ready to table a mammoth 200m euro bid for the French star, which PSG are reportedly minded to accept.
Al-Hilal have already signed Ruben Neves, Sergej Milinkovic Savic and Kalidou Koulibaly this summer, and have also seen bids for Lionel Messi and Romelu Lukaku turned down.
However, they are keen not to let that be the end of their spending, and are lining up a move for the French star.
Despite this, L’Equipe add that Mbappe is almost certain to turn down any approach other than that of Los Blancos, with Real Madrid the clear favourites to sign him either this summer or next despite Carlo Ancelotti’s side having already splashed out in excess of 100m euros on Jude Bellingham earlier in the transfer window.
