Saudi Arabia is willing to spend big, even for one season of Kylian Mbappé. One Saudi Pro League could take advantage of the 24-year-old’s uncertain situation this summer.
CBS Sports’ Ben Jacobs reports that Al-Hilal will offer close to €250 million for the Frenchman. Meanwhile, PSG is ready to exclude Mbappé from the UEFA Champions League list if he stays and doesn’t renew.
It will be interesting to see if losing Mbappe, even if it’s for this season, gets Real Madrid’s interest in motion. Los Blancos need a striker to replace Karim Benzema’s production.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner has to decide whether to leave now or be phased out for an entire season. It’s likely international competition is the only action he sees during this campaign should he stay at PSG without a new contract.
As a result, the PSG star would be playing out of rhythm heading into the UEFA Euros 2024 and the Olympics in Paris. It would be best for Mbappé from a sporting level to either sign or be sold this summer to ensure he’s in top form for those two competitions.
While PSG likely wants to have Mbappé as part of the squad, they want to ensure that not even their hometown superstar is above the club.
