Saudi Arabian club Al-Hilal has submitted a world-record transfer bid for Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappé, which is understood to be worth around €300m (approx. $332m USD).

The move has come following the news that PSG left Mbappé out of its squad for its pre-season tour of Japan, with the French champions determined to sell Mbappé unless he signs a new contract. PSG is also willing to accept Al-Hilal’s offer, but there have been no talks between Al-Hilal and Mbappé.

However, Al-Hilal will continue to attempt to sign Mbappé for a world-record fee and salary and are mindful that it may suit the France captain to come for only one season, with Mbappé expected to sign for Real Madrid next summer.

As per CBS’ soccer correspondent, James Benge, Al-Hilal are prepared to pay Mbappé a world-record salary of €700m (approx. $775m USD), which is a weekly wage of €13m (approx. 14.4m USD).

Additionally, if Al-Hilal was to get its record-breaking deal over the line, it would destroy football’s financial norm, following the club’s attempt to sign Lionel Messi for more than £350m GBP a year from PSG, before the Argentina forward opted to move to Inter Miami.

In other sports news, Steph Curry has spoken about his plans to play for Team USA in the 2024 Olympic Games.
