Arguably, the hottest commodity in the realm of sports, Kylian Mbappé, may be on the move and Al Hilal, one of his main suitors, is aggressively in pursuit.
However, Mbappé has refused to meet with representatives of Saudi Arabian team Al Hilal, who have made a world-record bid for the France striker, sources confirmed to ESPN.
The Paris Saint-Germain player wouldn’t meet with Al Hilal officials, who were in the French capital to sign Brazilian forward Malcom (Filipe Silva de Oliveira).
Mbappé is a French professional footballer who plays as a forward for Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain and captains the France national team.
On an international level, Mbappé is a megastar and has a list of impressive accomplishments. Starting off, the Frenchman made his senior debut for France in 2017, at age 18.
At the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Mbappé became the youngest French player to score at a World Cup, and became the second teenager, after Pelé, to score in a World Cup Final.
He finished as the joint second highest goal scorer as France won the tournament and won the FIFA World Cup Best Young Player and French Player of the Year for his performances. Prodigy-level work.
At the 2022 FIFA World Cup, he led France to the final, placed together an epic, come from behind performance scoring 3 goals in a losing effort.
Mbappé also won the Golden Boot and Silver Ball and set the record for most goals scored in World Cup finals.
It’s easy to see why he may be the most wanted commodity in the world of soccer. Where he ends up however, is still yet to be determined.
