Could Kylian Mbappé be on his way to Real Madrid? Another media outlet reports that the Paris Saint-Germain star is bound to join the Spanish club once his contract with the Parisians expires.
German media outlet Bild (h/t Diario AS) reports that Mbappé has already decided to join Los Blancos. Bild goes on to specify the 25-year-old footballer’s economic demands.
Furthermore, the report indicates that the 2018 FIFA World Cup champion seeks a yearly salary of €70 million and a five-year deal with the La Liga club. However, his salary demands clash with Real Madrid’s set limit, which reportedly stands at €35 million gross.
Currently, the Mbappé family earns approximately €200 million annually through bonuses and commissions. Fayza Lamari, the player’s mother, representative, and negotiator, is known for her firm and assertive approach. Since Mbappé would join as a free agent after his contract expires, bonuses would become a significant factor in negotiations.
Bild provides specific information that Real Madrid would need to pay a signing bonus of €125 million. Coupled with the sought-after annual salary of €70 million, this would elevate the total operation cost to over €400 million throughout the five-year duration of the contract.
