Paris Saint-Germain is running on an enormous high following their victory over Manchester City on matchday two of the UEFA Champions League. Nonetheless, the elephant in the room over these next couple of months will be the contract of Kylian Mbappé.
The 22-year-old has one more year left on his deal that will expire in June. However, he could begin talks over a pre-contract in January for the 2022-23 season. El Pais reports that the Ligue 1 side continues to have hope in extending the France international.
According to the Spanish media outlet, PSG wants to offer Mbappé a colossal signing bonus estimated at around €100-million on his new contract, paid in two installments once Messi’s contract ends in 2023.
The reported bonus is much higher than Florentino Perez promised him if he joined Real Madrid next season. Furthermore, the contract extension would see the young forward become the highest-paid player on the team as PSG is willing to offer him €50-million per season.
Ideally, Mbappé would like to extend his contract with a release clause in the event of an offer from Real Madrid. As indicated on numerous occasions, this kind of clause is prohibited in France, but they can have a handshake agreement between the two parties.
