The story over Mbappe’s future has been noisy over the past few years, with the French star being invited to join Real Madrid when his contract expires in the summer of 2022. However, he has signed a new deal with him. The French giant has a contract until 2024, with a one-year extension option until 2025 that only the player can activate.
Speculation arose again this summer when Mbappe was dropped from PSG’s squad, after he informed the club that the star would not use that extension.
The player was left out of the squad for the club’s pre-season tour of Japan and South Korea and forced to train with a group considered ‘undesirables’ – players whom PSG trying to force them out.
Mbappe was then returned to the first team after missing the first match of the season against Lorient. And according to French news agency RMC Sport, the striker will only be allowed to return if he agrees to give up the bonuses that Mbappe was promised.
The report says PSG initially insisted the only way he could return to Luis Enrique’s first team was to sign a new contract, which the striker refused to do. Therefore, they changed tactics. Present, Mbappe gave up a bonus worth around €80m (£70m) after reaching an agreement with the club.
PSG is still eager to extend the contract with their star, who continues to be linked with a move to Real Madrid. However, despite constant speculation about his future, Mbappe shows no signs of distraction, scoring 13 goals in 11 appearances in Ligue 1 this season.
