Mbappe ‘signs Real Madrid contract’, to become club’s highest-paid player

3 min read

French striker, Kylian Mbappe is reported to have signed a deal with Real Madrid two weeks ago and will join the club as soon as the summer transfer window opens.

This is according to a story on MARCA and corroborated by AS

Mbappe and his current club Paris Saint-Germain announced last Thursday that they will be parting ways this summer and it seems clear that the striker will be a Real Madrid player.

Mbappe will sign a five-year contract with Los Blancos, with a salary of €15 million to €20 million, according to the same reports.

The deal will make him the highest-paid player in the club, surpassing Jude Bellingham,

Real Madrid’s offer was not as large as it was back in 2022 since the club believed they had leverage in the negotiations, but Mbappe eventually decided to accept the deal.

Mbappe tells PSG directors he plans to leave
France captain Kylian Mbappe has told officials at Paris Saint-Germain that he intends to leave when his contract expires at the end of the season, a source close to the Ligue 1 champions said on Thursday.

The 25-year-old, who arrived in Paris from Monaco in 2017, had extended his contract in 2022 until 2024 but last summer declined to activate a clause allowing him to stay another year at PSG.

Mbappe has been widely tipped to move to Real Madrid and, according to a source close to the matter, has already entered negotiations with the Spanish giants.

“The terms of the departure have yet to be fully agreed,” the source said, adding that the club and Mbappe will make an official statement “when everything is finalised in the next few months”.

PSG declined to comment when contacted by AFP.

Mbappe will leave PSG on a free transfer but the blow to the club will be softened by an agreement they reached last summer which will see the player waive bonuses amounting to around 60 to 70 million euros ($65.6 million to $76.6 million).

After seven seasons at PSG, Mbappe, the club’s all-time top scorer, looks set to seal a move to Real Madrid, the club that the player has dreamt of since he was a child.

Real have made no secret of their desire to bring him to the Santiago Bernabeu. In 2019, 2021 and 2022, club president Florentino Perez considered signing him, only to be rebuffed each time.

For PSG, the departure of their main star, a year after the exits of Neymar and Lionel Messi, marks the beginning of a new era of uncertainty.
