Can Paris Saint-Germain and Kylian Mbappé could be working toward a contract extension? Possibly, at the very least, both sides are reportedly talking, and compromises are being made.
The Times’ Duncan Castles reports that Mbappé has suggested a potential compromise that may alter the landscape of his contract extension negotiations with PSG.
According to the information, the French star offered a unique compromise. He would forfeit about €100 million in bonuses if he refused to sign a new contract.
In response, PSG has put forward an innovative counterproposal in the form of a “guaranteed sale clause.” If this clause is included in the new contract, it will allow both parties to handle a potential future transfer.
🚨 Si Mbappé ne signe pas de nouveau contrat, il s'engage à renoncer à ses primes d'environ 100M€. ❌💰
Le compromis a été proposé par Mbappe lui même. 🤝
Le PSG propose d'inclure une "clause de vente garantie" dans les conditions du nouveau contrat. 📄

Should Mbappé leave the French capital, all eyes will be on Real Madrid to make a move. However, the Spanish giants have no desire to pay any transfer fee for the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner.
Furthermore, the 24-year-old might have made a bold statement to Real Madrid after scoring against Toulouse FC on Saturday. So what the future holds for the Frenchman is a mystery.
