The latest on Kylian Mbappé’s future and how Harry Kane could be affected by the domino effect.

Kylian Mbappé has snatched the headlines once again as his future is once again up for the debate. The clinical goal-scorer is edging closer to an exit from PSG and it’s not at all surprising that Saudi Arabia have burst onto the scene with a promise to break the bank for his signature.

Al-Hilal, the new home of Kalidou Koulibaly and Rúben Neves, have tabled a world record transfer offer of £260 million for Mbappé. Huge money for a huge player and equally, a huge ripple effect to come off the back of it. Not only will this have other interested clubs working hard to find different ways to tempt the Frenchman, it could alter the current narrative on the transfer market.

Since PSG officially gave Mbappé the green light to pursue a move, several clubs have been in contact, including Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur. The interest from Spurs is where things could get interesting when it comes to the Harry Kane saga.

As it stands, Daniel Levy has been told by club owner Joe Lewis that he must either convince Kane to pen a new deal this summer or sell him. Spurs aren’t willing to entertain anything less than £100 million though, but the Mbappé news could see them pocket even more than that.

PSG are in firmly in the race for Kane and recent sources have claimed that if they do sell their star striker this window, “hatever they were going to offer the player [Kane] before, they’d double it,” (via The Independent). This would surely light a fire under Bayern Munich as well, who are also heavily involved in the pursuit of the England captain.

The report claims that the Bundesliga giants are “extremely confident” they can agree a deal with Spurs, but have the downside of having “no experience of dealing with Daniel.” Right now, there is a lot to digest and absolutely nothing set in stone — but there’s plenty of time left on the transfer market for more twists and turns, and that’s where the thrill lies.
