The Kylian Mbappé contract extension saga continues to drag, and with the summer transfer window deadline fast approaching, Real Madrid is hitting overdrive to land the 22-year-old. There are various figures as to what the Spanish club wants to pay.
Nonetheless, whether Paris Saint-Germain decides to sell or renew Mbappé’s contract, AS reports that the capital club will need to pay an additional €35-million to AS Monaco.
Monaco inserted the clause when they officially sold Mbappé to PSG in 2018, and although some supporters want the club to sell, a portion will be heading to their Ligue 1 rival.
If Real Madrid offers €160-million for the striker, Les Parisiens would only receive €125-million for being obliged to pay Monaco that reduction due to the clause inserted in the forward’s contract.
There are only a few days left until the transfer window closes, so it will be interesting to see whether the French giants stand firm and have Mbappé see out his contract or decide to accept an offer from Los Blancos, which a portion would head to Monaco.
