The future of Kylian Mbappe, who has asked to leave Paris Saint Germain, continues to be unclear.
Real Madrid remain the main favorites to sign the Frenchman, but another club has made the first official bid towards the reigning French champions.
The Arab team Al Hilal has presented the official offer to acquire the services of Mbappe and it is an offer that is a world record.
Al Hilal has offered PSG 300 milli on euros and if this offer is accepted, then the world transfer record held by Neymar with 222 million euros will be broken.

Meanwhile, the player is waiting for a five-year contract from which he will earn less than 700 million euros per season, where Mbappe would become the highest paid footballer in the history of football.
It remains to be seen whether the 24-year-old will accept a shock move to the Arab Championship, where many stars have already opted for millions before a career in Europe’s strongest leagues.
Various European media have reported that Al Hilal is ready to allow Mbappe an exit clause after one year to transfer to Real Madrid.
