Kylian Mbappe reportedly has no intention of playing in Saudi Arabia despite Paris Saint-Germain granting Al-Hilal permission to speak to the French star after they launched a staggering world record £259million bid for the French star.
The French club were forced to put Mbappe up for sale after he refused to sign a new deal with one year left on his contract.
The Madrid-based outlet claims Mbappe is determined to see out the final year of his contract with the reigning French champions.
The stance would represent a significant challenge for new PSG boss Luis Enrique, particularly should the reigning champions struggle on the pitch.
The 24-year-old was already left out of PSG’s pre-season tour of Japan and South Korea, with his future a major headache for the Ligue 1 side.
Al-Hilal’s offer would eclipse Neymar’s £198m move from Barcelona to PSG as the most expensive transfer in football history.
It is claimed that the Saudi Pro League side could put a release clause in a lucrative contract that could allow Mbappe to sign for Real Madrid next summer.
Al-Hilal have been one of the biggest spending Saudi Pro League clubs this summer as they have already signed Ruben Neves from Wolves for £47m and recruited Kalidou Koulibaly from Chelsea in a £33m deal.
Al-Hilal have also signed Serbian playmaker Sergej Milinkovic-Savic from Lazio for £34m, while they are targeting Fulham striker Aleksandr Mitrovic.
