Transfer: You can’t say no to such money – PSG grant Mbappe greenlight to talk to new club

PSG grant Mbappe permission to begin talks with Saudi Arabia club over an eye-watering transfer fee

PSG have granted Kylian Mbappe the permission to hold talks with Al Hilal.

CBS soccer correspondent journalist James Benge, broke the news on Monday.

Joining talkSPORT on Monday to discuss the story and his possible move to Saudi Arabia, the reported said that “PSG are very open to doing a deal at that level,” he said.

“It would make him the world’s most expensive footballer and it’s really hard to imagine someone saying no to €700millio.

“It’s a staggering amount of money, and it comes with a willingness from Al Hilal’s side, if it’s what Mbappe wants, for him to go to Real Madrid next year.

“One thing I was told is, for Al-Hilal, when you put these numbers in euro terms, it becomes the first €1billion footballer – there’s almost a desire for that to be the talking point of the summer.

“Real Madrid, I don’t know. I’m sure that Al-Hilal’s pitch to Mbappe would be, you can stay here if you want the money. And Real Madrid will obviously say, there is no way on earth we can match that salary or even get close.

“Maybe Mbappe looks at it as a one-off, let’s build up the bank account for a year and then almost go and do what I want, follow my dreams.”
