PSG: Kylian Mbappé close to extending for a titanic amount?

The end of the soap opera? A new episode? According to , Kylian Mbappé would be close to extending with PSG. The information should be taken with a grain of salt, but our colleagues say they have information from a source close to the player’s entourage which indicates that the striker has accepted an extension offer from the club and its president, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi . To be taken with tweezers, firstly because the number 7 of PSG has repeated in recent weeks that his decision was “not yet made”. But “new elements” had come into play in his thinking.

At the heart of this extension, there are in any case crazy sums at stake, although the player has not made it a priority. As Capital already relayed at the beginning of March, this two-year extension (and an optional year) would be accompanied by an annual net salary of 50 million euros as well as a loyalty bonus on signing of 100 million euros. net of tax. This salary would be the biggest in Ligue 1 history in any case, Lionel Messi having extended to Barça in 2017 for a net monthly salary of around 74 million euros.

The player’s mother denies

If this extension were signed by both parties, it would be the perfect move for the capital club, explains . From a sporting point of view already, but also for his image just over six months from the World Cup in Qatar (owner of the club). The player would be the banner of his World Cup. A financial blow also despite the sums at stake, because a possible resale in one or two years could bring big money to PSG. But details remain to be settled. Because the player’s entourage did not deny it to , but tempered and Real Madrid would have been made aware of the situation. After the publication of this article, the player’s mother, Fayza Lamari, insisted on denying any agreement: “There is no agreement in principle with Paris Saint-Germain (or any other club). The discussions around Kylian’s future continues in a climate of great serenity to allow him to make the best choice, with respect for all parties,” she tweeted.

In any case, Kylian Mbappé has set his conditions, which are not only financial. The player would like to fully control his image rights, as does Lionel Messi, his teammate. He would also like to have sporting guarantees, to be “at the heart of the project” if he stays, especially with players who want to win everything, which he does not currently feel. For the moment, nothing has been signed, no verbal agreement has been given, but PSG seem to want to start a “revolution” according to Le Parisien. It will also be necessary for that, to solve the problem of the trainer and the sponsors. And convince Kylian Mbappé definitively. Because in an interview given to Fayza Lamari claims that the player’s priority remains, for now, Real Madrid.
