The clash between Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid in the eighth finals of the Champions League could also be seen as a battle for Kylian Mbappe. After 90 minutes of fighting, the Parisians are closer to the top eight, and if the British Independent is to be believed, they are slightly better positioned to convince the French star to stay at the club.
Namely, the striker who solved the first match against the Royal Club with a great goal in the referee's additional time, is considering a Paris Saint-Germain offer of around 50,000,000 euros gross. And fixed, ie without a bonus!
It would be practically a jump of more than double, because Mbappe is currently "earning" around 25,000,000 euros in Paris, with bonuses According to the British media, the giant from the Princes' Park saved Mbappe between 500,000 and 1,000,000 pounds a week, emphasizing that the offer is closer to a larger sum.
That means at least just over £ 750,000 a week, which is close to £ 50,000,000. Some media even calculate that PSG will pay over 62,000,000 a year to the Tricolori national team player. No football player on the planet currently earns that much.
While playing for Juventus, Cristiano Ronaldo, for example, had around 70,000,000 euros gross. Bombastic news, like the one that we could hear on January 31, when the German Bild announced that Real Madrid had agreed on the terms of cooperation with Mbappe and a gross salary of 50,000,000 euros.
Kylian Mbappe and Real Madrid
In the meantime, details have emerged that Blancos, out of respect for Paris Saint-Germain, are waiting for their duel to end and to officially announce that Mbappe will arrive at the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer.
The Independent claims that members of Mbappe's entourage, and that includes his parents, met with the leaders of Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday. The meeting focused on the arrogance of Real Madrid and its boss Florentino Perez, who was furious because of his team's performance and is thinking hard about replacing Carlo Ancelotti with Mauricio Pochettino at the end of the season.
The footballer himself has been very mysterious for a long time, although he said in November last year that he wanted to leave PSG this summer and move to Madrid. As he stayed, his mantra became the following: "My only goal is to knock out Real Madrid, that is, to win all these seasons ..."
Despite the money and the disappointing edition in Paris from two days ago, Real Madrid is still the biggest club in the world, an oasis for big stars such as Mbappe, who would like to start improving the backlog left behind in Madrid by one of of his idols, Cristiano Ronaldo.
