"Who's going to be able to afford Kylian Mbappe? He is reported to be earning about 2 million euros a week at PSG. His loyalty bonuses are incredible. There have been reports that, if he stays at PSG for another season, he stands to make more than 100 million euros,"Kaveh Solhekol of Sky Sports News said regarding Mbappe's transfer. English clubs Chelsea and Newcastle United are also interested in the French striker. 

The Saudi club currently has Snegal’s Kalidou Koulibaly, Portugal’s Ruben Neves and Perus' Andre Carrillo along with Brazil’s Michael on their team roster of foreign stars.

Mbappe was signed by PSG for record 146 million euros in 2018. His current market value is estimated to be around 150 million europs and Real Madrid is the top-most club on the minds of both PSG and Mbappe.
