Kylian Mbappe saw the funny side of Giannis Antetokounmpo’s social media post in which he joked about his prospective move to Saudi Arabia.
The NBA star couldn’t help but comment on the Paris Saint-Germain star’s potential move to Al-Hilal after reports of an eye-watering £256million deal for the France star.
Taking to Twitter, the Milwaukee Bucks star Antetokounmpo said: “Al Hilal you can take me. I look like Kylian Mbappe,” with two laughing emojis.
Clearly addressing the stunning sums of money discussed in the Mbappe move, the basketball star’s post led Mbappe to retweet with with no less than 13 laughing emojis of his own.
For Mbappe, there’s no disputing why he’s laughing given the huge sums of money discussed in a potential switch to the Saudi Pro League.
The 24-year-old is expected to leave PSG this summer after refusing to sign a new contract with the Ligue 1 side.
Mbappe is holding out for a move to Real Madrid when his deal expires next summer, paving the way for Al-Hilal to swoop for the player with a one-year deal reportedly on the table.
For one season’s work, the Saudi side are willing to offer a whopping £605million in wages to the player, an offer that would make him the best-paid player in the world by some distance.
The current highest-earner is Cristiano Ronaldo who pockets £62m-a-year with Al-Nassr – an astronomical amount that would be dwarfed by Mbappe’s deal should a move to Saudi Arabia come off.
