Kylian Mbappe breaks his silence on the £259 million Al Hilal deal amid Chelsea and Arsenal interest

In the midst of speculation about Chelsea and Arsenal, Kylian Mbappe speaks out about the £259 million Al Hilal offer.

Kylian Mbappe, a star for Paris Saint-Germain, has spoken out over Al Hilal’s record-breaking transfer offer in a message to basketball phenom Giannis Antetokounmpo.

After Paris Saint-Germain agreed to Al Hilal’s €300 million (£259 million) offer, Kylian Mbappe responded. On Monday afternoon, the Saudi Arabian p officially announced their attempt to break the world record. A few hours later, PSG authorized the club to contact Mbappe about a summer transfer.

Despite knowing the 24-year-old is not interested in leaving Europe, an idea has been presented that may suit all parties. Mbappe joining Al Hilal would see the Parisians get the money they are looking for with Mbappe signing a one-year contract that would see him earn £50million per month.

Only being in the Middle East for 12 months would then allow the France international to seal his dream move to Real Madrid on a free transfer. It is still currently unclear on what Mbappe’s stance now is following the lucrative proposal sent from the Saudi’s, but he has now broken his silence on the proposed move when replying to Basketball star Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Amid talk of Al Hilal’s bid, the Milwaukee Bucks player posted a photo of himself on Twitter with the caption: “Al Hilal you can take me. I look like Kylian Mbappe *two laughing face emojis and eyes raised emojis.*Moments after the post went live, Mbappe replied with a quote tweet of 13 laughing face emojis.

With his time in the French capital looking over unless he signs a contract extension, there are alternative options to Mbappe than a one-year stint in Saudi Arabia. According to BBC Sport, PSG are open to letting him leave on loan with their understanding being he would run down his PSG contract playing for another club before then joining Madrid next summer.

That way the Parisians do not lose another star player on a free transfer after Lionel Messi confirmed he would not be extending his stay earlier this summer before then signing for MLS side Inter Miami. Mbappe agreeing to an Al Hilal transfer, even for just one year, would be one of the biggest transfers of all time with a player in the peak of his career joining Cristiano Ronaldo in a league where it has only just gathered mainstream attention.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United have all also been linked following PSG’s decision to leave Mbappe out of their pre-season tour to Japan, but the latter two northern clubs look unlikely to move for the former Monaco man. However, the Blues are continuing to study the feasibility of signing Mbappe this summer, according to RMC journalist Fabrice Hawkins
