Paris Saint-Germain made a bold decision on Friday when the club announced that Kylian Mbappe was not part of the squad heading to Japan.
The capital club appears ready to move on from the 24-year-old. As a result, PSG is willing to sell the Frenchman to the highest bidder. CBS Sports’ Ben Jacobs reports that dealmakers in Saudi Arabia are prepared to make an offer for Mbappe this summer.

Mbappe plans to stay in Europe, so a difficult transfer to pull off. Meanwhile, the capital club is fine selling the Mbappe to any Saudi Arabian club that presents an offer.
The Ligue 1 giants are keen on selling the player this summer to avoid losing him as a free agent. Aside from Saudi Arabia, all eyes will be on Real Madrid to see if the Spanish club makes an offer for Mbappe.
Now will be the time for Los Blancos to land the long-term replacement for Karime Benzema.
