Beware? Journalist Warns Real Madrid that Mbappé is Using Saudi Interest as Potential Leverage

When Kylian Mbappé chose not to exercise his option to extend his contract with Paris Saint-Germain until 2025, all attention shifted to Real Madrid. The Spanish club has been eager to have the talented Frenchman don their iconic white kit for a long time.

Real Madrid is currently playing a waiting game, hoping to secure Mbappé’s signature as a free agent instead of paying a transfer fee. However, their plans might be in jeopardy as Al-Hilal has allegedly made a substantial offer for the player, and other clubs are also expressing interest. This situation could force Real Madrid to take action sooner than they had anticipated.

CBS Sports’ Ben Jacobs suggests that Mbappé could use Al-Hilal’s offer as leverage against Real Madrid. He speculates that the Frenchman might be able to negotiate a more favorable agreement, potentially altering any pre-existing terms that were in place.

“So I wouldn’t rule out the possibility of Real Madrid being baited into either moving now or in January to pay something for Mbappé because of all of this other interest,” Jacobs said in the latest episode of “The Debrief.” 

“And this is where the trust is key between Mbappé and Real Madrid because right now, PSG believes there’s an agreement between Real and Mbappé for next summer. 

“However, Mbappé may use the leverage of the Saudi bid to get more out of Real Madrid or to change the terms in some way. And this is what PSG are going to be able to play on because if you’re Mbappé, you’re nuts just to turn down Saudi Arabia at this level of money.”

PSG has made it clear that they are ready to part ways with Mbappé, evident by their decision to exclude him from their summer tour to Asia. The club has essentially advertised him as “for sale,” indicating their willingness to entertain offers.

 PSG’s hope is that Real Madrid or any other interested club will step forward and potentially acquire the services of the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner.
