Saudi Arabia have allocated astronomical amount for transfers between now and 2030

Saudi Arabia have allocated astronomical amount for transfers between now and 2030

Saudi Arabia's transfer budget for the Saudi Pro league explains why they are forking out on the world's best players.

Saudi Arabia's attempt to take over world football will not be slowing down anytime soon, with the country allocating an outrageous amount of money for transfers.

In recent times, huge names like Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, N'Golo Kante, Ruben Neves, Kalidou Koulibaly, Roberto Firmino, Marcelo Brozovic, Edouard Mendy and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic have all been lured to the mega riches of the Saudi Pro League.

Liverpool pair Jordan Henderson and Fabinho, as well former Reds forward Sadio Mane and Manchester City star Riyad Mahrez, also look set to join the Saudi footballing revolution.

And the Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund (PIF) have stepped things up a notch, with record champions Al Hilal submitting a world record £260 million bid for wantaway PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe.

PSG are said to have accepted the astronomical offer and granted permission to speak with Mbappe, who are prepared to pay him an eye-watering €700 million for one year of service.

Collecting €1.9 million per day, Mbappe would be the highest earner in football by some distance. With plenty of other suitors amid a contract stand-off, it's said Mbappe is not interested in leaving Europe despite the temptation.

But don't be surprised to see more extortionate bids from Saudi Arabia in the future. Many have suggested that the PIF, who control four of the SPL's leading clubs, are working with unlimited funds.

According to Ben Jacobs on CBS Sports, there is in fact a budget but it is to the tune of £17 billion. The journalist reports that the insane figure has been set for transfers for the next seven years as the SPL vie to fulfil Ronaldo's prediction and become one of the top leagues in the world.

They tried desperately to acquire Lionel Messi and bring him to Al Hilal in a ridiculous $1 billion a year but he reportedly rejected it for less money at Inter Miami.

Former Chelsea chief Michael Emenalo is working as Saudi Pro League's director of football and is tasked with bringing in more "world-class international players".

In this window, league officials made a list of recommended players, primarily targeting players over the age of 30 with contracts nearing expiration.

Lower down the leagues, teams in the Saudi third tier are also on the hunt for new talent and a new job advert claims they are prepared to offer $3000 -$4000 per week, as well as pay for a house and a car.
