As revealed by L’Equipe newspaper, PSG consider Mbappe the most important player in the team building plan. The rich man of France may lose superstars like Neymar or Lionel Messi, but certainly never let the French player slip out of hand. Therefore, Qatari owners have spent a lot of money to … buy Mbappe’s loyalty.
It is known that Mbappe’s current monthly salary at PSG, after deducting all taxes, is 6 million euros. However, the Paris team also gave the 24-year-old striker an unprecedented grace at the Parc des Princes. It is an amount of 60 million euros a year poured directly into Mbappe’s account under the name “loyalty bonus”.
In addition to salary and loyalty fees, Mbappe is also allowed by the PSG leader to enjoy all of his image royalties. According to statistics of Le Parisien, the total amount that Mbappe earned for his current contract (which ends in the summer of 2025) is up to 630 million euros. This is considered the largest contract in the history of world sports.
Besides, Mbappe is also given a lot of privileges. He is allowed to interfere in the transfer of the team. Mbappe’s voice has more weight than the owner of 7 Golden Ball titles, Lionel Messi. Even Mbappe surpassed coach Christophe Galtier. In general, the “scorer” at the 2022 World Cup is like the navel of the universe at Parc des Princes.
That is why in a recent interview, Mbappe showed no interest in the opportunity to join Real Madrid. When reporters asked questions about the future, instead of answering directly, the French player briefly replied that he just wanted to win the Champions League with PSG. It can be seen as a hint that Mbappe chose to stay at Parc des Princes to help the rich Frenchman realize his dream of winning the European Championship.
In fact, Mbappe once refused Real Madrid for money. That was the story of last summer. President Florentino Perez has reserved a huge amount to recruit the French player. Mbappe himself has also nodded to agree to join the Bernabeu to move towards the dream of winning the Champions League. But at the last minute, the 24-year-old striker “turned the bet”. The reason is that PSG made an offer so attractive that he could not refuse.
Mbappe’s sudden “turn of the car” made Real Madrid fall into a passive position in the transfer window last summer. President Florentino Perez at that time was very angry with the French star and posted a message declaring: “Kylian Mbappe is no longer an innocent boy. Money dazzled him, leading to his decision to betray us. For sure, he will regret turning down Real Madrid.”
Real Madrid should give up the idea of signing Mbappe as soon as possible. Even waiting for the 24-year-old striker to expire his contract with PSG in the summer of 2025, the Spanish Royal team will have a hard time getting his signature in front of PSG’s monetary power. Because Real Madrid’s money compared to the wealth of Qatar’s owners is no different from “stone throwing ponds”. Like PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, as long as Mbappe agrees to stay, all other things don’t matter.
Once Mbappe has “betrayed” Real Madrid for the first time for money, he can also do the same with the Royal Spanish team for the second and third time…
