From France, RMC Sport reported, Mbappe has finalized the money issue with PSG, an important factor for him to be able to leave at the end of the season, while the Paris team does not fall into the situation of ‘losing everything’ their number 1 asset.
Specifically, Mbappe agreed not to receive the 80 million euros (including many different bonuses) that PSG still owes him, at the present time. This is understood as a “mortgage” – the price for the 24-year-old striker to exchange for his freedom, even though in reality the contract of both parties has ended.
According to the above source, the desire of PSG Mbappe’s contract is still extended, but the striker is expected to maintain his original intention: he will only stay until the end of this season.
Real Madrid, where Mbappe had an ‘appointment’ last summer but broke his promise and planned to do it next year. President Florentino Perez is waiting for that, but he wants Mbappe to take the first (most important) step himself – leaving PSG.
Real Madrid wants to avoid being made difficult by PSG, and is also more cautious after Mbappe’s ‘turn around’ last summer.
Earlier this month, Diario AS revealed that there are actually negotiations between the La Liga giants and Mbappe and the 24-year-old striker is expected to earn a huge salary of 35 million euros/season after tax.
And by coming to the Bernabeu on a free basis, Mbappe will certainly receive a significant amount of “briefing” money, after he accepted a “mortgage” of 80 million euros to PSG in order to leave.
Mbappe is expected to make an official announcement about his future depending on PSG’s journey in the Champions League this season.
