1 billion buy 1 year of use rights! Interpretation: Riyadh Crescent is crazy? Will Mbappé go to Saudi Arabia?
According to a number of media confirmed, Riyadh Crescent offered Mbappe for a transfer fee of 300 million euros and an annual salary contract of 700 million, and Paris Saint-Germain has accepted this transfer fee, depending on the attitude of President Mu himself. So what's going on with this deal?
1 billion buys 100 million, the new moon is "crazy"?
With a transfer fee of 300 million euros and an annual salary of 700 million euros, and allowing Mbappe to go to Real Madrid next year without charging any transfer fees, the Riyadh Crescent is equivalent to spending 1 billion euros to buy Mbappe for a year.
1 billion euros, what concept? At present, the most expensive club in world football is Arsenal, and all the players in the team add up to 1.2 billion euros! The second highest Manchester City is 1.18 billion. Paris is 1.02 billion, but it includes Mbappe himself.
However, the Riyadh Crescent can easily shell out 1 billion. And if Mbappe is willing to stay for a few more years, then they can effortlessly come up with a salary of 700 million euros a year, and even more!
Yes, this is the difference in the world. 75% of Riyadh Crescent's shares belong to the Saudi Public Investment Fund, and the Saudis have money, with fiscal revenue of $278 billion last year! What is 1 billion euros?
Riyadh Crescent is not short of money, what is lacking is popularity and influence, and the fastest way to improve is to buy the world's top superstars. Previously, they had asked for Messi with an annual salary of 700 million euros, but they did not need to pay a transfer fee.
Messi chose Internacional Miami, and Ronaldo was in the city rivals Riyadh Victory. Crescent sees the huge effect brought by Cristiano Ronaldo, and it is even more to catch up, so there is no one more suitable than Mbappe, who won the 2018 World Cup, wore a hat in the 2022 World Cup final, and was the most expensive in football.
Therefore, the Riyadh New Moon is not "crazy" at all, just want to spend money on the loudest advertising, as for how much to spend, it is not a problem at all, I am afraid that there is money that cannot be spent.
Will Mbappé go to Saudi Arabia?
Mbappe's previous insistence is that he will not renew his contract with Paris Saint-Germain, stay in the new season, and wait until his contract expires next summer before leaving, when he can join Real Madrid or other teams without a visa.
Paris' attitude is to sell without renewing his contract, and if Mbappe has to stay in the new season, then let him sit on the cold bench for a year. However, he has the right to play, both under contract and by law, and could be punished if Paris forcibly dismisses him from playing.
So the ideal thing for Paris is to be able to sell Mbappe. And just at this time, the Riyadh crescent came, offering a transfer fee of 300 million euros. It's an offer that no European giant, including Real Madrid, is much higher than Paris' own sticker price, so of course it will gladly accept it.
Now, it's up to Mbappé himself. If you still insist on staying, then even if you are not forfeited in the new season and can still play, you will definitely not be treated by the club and will play very humiliated.
If you go to Saudi Arabia for a year, the advantage is that you can earn 700 million, and you can still go to Real Madrid next summer. However, the Saudi league level is not as good as the five major leagues, there is no Champions League to play, their competitive status and reputation will be damaged, after all, Messi and Ronaldo are old and left Europe, he is only 24 years old, is it worth it?
Of course, in addition to Riyadh Crescent, there are 5 European teams interested in Mbappe, including Chelsea, Manchester United, Tottenham, Inter and Barca, and Real Madrid may also make an official offer, so there are always other options, and it is not very likely to go to Saudi Arabia.
