Al-Hilal made the world record offer to snag the French superstar away from his Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). The total package Al-Hilal made to Mbappé is ridiculous, to say the least.

Saudi Arabia is trying to pay Kylian Mbappé $776 million to play for Al-Hilal for one season.

For comparison:
$531M: LeBron James' all-time NBA earnings
$494M: Patrick Mahomes' deal through 2031
$450M: The value of the Arizona Coyotes
$367M: The New York Mets' entire payroll… pic.twitter.com/FA93DaSMWo

The sports world, mainly the NBA, has been going wild since the news broke, with LeBron James using a Forest Gump running meme to joke that he was headed to Saudi after his buddies Rich Paul and Maverick Carter get him a deal, writing, "Me headed to Saudi when they call @RichPaul4 & @mavcarter for that 1 year deal!"

King James signed a new contract with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2022 that gave him $532 million in guaranteed career earnings and made the four-time NBA champion the highest-paid player in NBA history in terms of salary. Mbappé's proposed one-year deal completely obliterates that by $240 million.

Meanwhile. seven-time NBA All-Star Damian Lillard wrote, "1 year 776mm? Wtf lol …" while four-time NBA All-Defensive First Team player Draymond Green had some fun with the news as well, stating, "They got basketball leagues too right? I don't the ink on my contract has dried up yet."

1 year 776mm? Wtf lol …

2021 NBA Finals MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, who shares a striking resemblance to Mbappé, said, "Al Hilal you can take me. I look like Kylian Mbappe," which the soccer star retweeted with a series of laughing emojis.
