LeBron James Jokes About Potential Move to Saudi Arabia Amidst Kylian Mbappe’s World-Record Bid


In the midst of the sports world being stunned by the reported world-record bid to transfer Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe to Saudi Arabian club Al-Hilal, NBA superstar LeBron James has joined in on the conversation with a humorous response.

The proposed $332 million offer to PSG for Mbappe has garnered significant attention, especially considering the reported $770 million Mbappe could potentially earn from a one-year contract offer. Milwaukee Bucks player Giannis Antetokounmpo’s tweet about Al-Hilal’s offer prompted a response from Mbappe, with several laughing reactions being his only public response to the life-changing proposal.

Now, LeBron James has hilariously chimed in, suggesting he would be ready to pack his bags for Saudi Arabia if presented with a similar offer. The NBA star tweeted, ‘Me headed to Saudi when they call @RichPaul4 & @mavcarter for that 1 year deal!’ accompanied by a gif of Forrest Gump sprinting.

For context, James’ highest-earning year of his NBA career will be the 2023-24 season, with a base salary of $47.6 million. This amount pales in comparison to the potential earnings that Mbappe could bring in if he were to make the move from Paris.

Interestingly, former James teammate J.R. Smith also expressed his willingness to consider joining the Saudi-backed LIV Golf in 2022, indicating the allure of lucrative offers from the region.

Al-Hilal’s world-record bid for Mbappe would surpass Neymar’s £198 million move from Barcelona to PSG, making it the most expensive transfer in football history. Rumors suggest that the Saudi Pro League side might include a release clause in a lucrative contract, potentially allowing Mbappe to join Real Madrid next summer.

As the saga continues, sports fans are left in suspense, wondering how this historic transfer bid will unfold and what future opportunities may arise for both Mbappe and other sports superstars.
