Sky Sports News reporter Paul Gilmour says Aleksandar Mitrovic wants to leave Fulham and is pushing for a move to Saudi Arabian side Al Hilal

Interest from Al Hilal in striker Aleksandr Mitrovic has sparked a fall-out between Fulham and their top goalscorer from last season, who reluctantly boarded their flight to the USA for pre-season.

Mitrovic has told relatives he will not play for Fulham again after the decision-makers slapped a £52m price tag on him.

Mitrovic, who was considering staying away from the club tour of America, was convinced by agent Pini Zahavi and PFA representatives to join the squad as they departed for the United States on Thursday.

However, it is understood Mitrovic is angry at being priced out of a move having been the subject of two failed bids from Al Hilal.

Mitrovic’s agent has urged Tony Khan to lower his value to somewhere between £35m and £45m.
