A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, Sky Sports stated that Paris Saint-Germain have accepted a world-record £259m bid for Kylian Mbappe. It has been claimed that PSG have accepted Al-Hilal’s £259m offer and have given the Saudi side permission to speak to the French player after their decision to put him up for sale recently.

Mbappe’s Excellent Run Of Form In Paris Last Season

The France international experienced another productive season at the French club as he was responsible for putting in a lot of impressive displays for them up top. Mbappe banged in 41 goals and picked up ten assists in 43 matches for PSG last season on all fronts.

The 24-year-old was unstoppable at times in the final third and did well to average 4.4 shots, 1.6 key passes and 2.2 dribbles per 90 minutes in Ligue 1. He was even tidy when distributing the ball in the opponent’s half after making 82.9% of his attempted passes in the French top tier (stats via whoscored).

Paris Saint-Germain Accept A World-Record £259m For Mbappe: Good Move For Everyone Involved?

Mbappe is a proven match-winner as he can score goals at a high rate in the final third. He can be an unforgiving finisher in front of the opponent’s goal and has got the pace to cause a lot of problems for his marker out on the flanks. The French talent can also pick up his fair share of assists in the opposition half.

At 24, Mbappe has already tasted a lot of success at the highest level and is playing the best football of his young career at the moment. Hence, it is no surprise that PSG have decided to accept such a high fee for him. It makes sense for the French club financially to sell their star player to the highest bidder.

Kylian Mbappe will no doubt be a massive acquisition for Al-Hilal as they look to establish themselves as a top side in Saudi Arabia. A short-term move to Saudi makes sense for the striker financially as long as he is willing to sacrifice playing in the UEFA Champions League in the process. All in all, it seems like a good move for everyone involved as one of this summer’s most discussed transfer sagas looks finally set to draw to a close.
