Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly planning a contract offer for Kylian Mbappe that will make him the highest-paid footballer in the world on a weekly salary of well over £500,000.
According to current plans, the World Cup-winning France international will leave Parc des Princes in the summer after a four-year stay.
Leading clubs throughout Europe are keeping a careful eye on the 22-year-status, old’s but PSG are hoping to persuade a coveted asset to commit to a lucrative extension, according to the Independent.
What has Mbappe said on his future?
When it comes to making significant decisions about his future, one of the most sought-after talents in the planet has kept his cards close to his chest.
He has never ruled out a return to PSG, but he revealed after the summer transfer window closed in 2021 that he had pushed for a move abroad in order to assist PSG get the best possible price for his services.
After scoring the game-winning goal against La Liga side Real Madrid in a heavyweight Champions League last-16 match, Mbappe informed Movistar of his plans: “I haven’t made up my mind on what I want to do with my life.”
“I am a member of Paris Saint-Germain, one of the most prestigious clubs in the world. We’ll see what happens next season if I give it my all.”
What did PSG say about Mbappe’s future?
The Ligue 1 giants are obviously hesitant to leave with such a coveted asset, and they have repeatedly indicated that new conditions may be reached.
That attitude was reaffirmed by sporting director Leonardo ahead of a meeting with Madrid, with the Brazilian searching for a global superstar to finish his career in Paris.
“I don’t think such a big decision will be based on a game or a tie,” he told El Larguero. He is a bright, mature young man with a strong analytical ability and a clear vision of his professional and personal goals.
“It would be a great indication for us and the club if he stays at PSG for the rest of his career.” He is, without a doubt, a world-class player in my opinion.”
Mbappe has been linked to a number of different teams.
While PSG refuses to give up, rumors tying Kylian Mbappe to a move to Spain have become unavoidable.
Real Madrid has never concealed their interest in the French striker, having tried unsuccessfully to entice him to Spain from Monaco when a new challenge was presented in 2017.
The Blancos are always on the lookout for fresh ‘Galacticos,’ and have been in a position to begin pre-contract talks with Mbappe since January, after submitting a €220 million (£189 million/$260 million) bid in the summer of 2021.
If Real fail to make progress in their pursuit of PSG’s talisman, it has been suggested that they may turn their attention to Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland, with Premier League heavyweights Liverpool apparently willing to jump in if the Liga leaders withdraw.
A new contract at Parc des Princes, on the other hand, would put an end to all conjecture and propel Kylian Mbappe to the top of the world’s earnings list.
Such a position would be appropriate given that he has 154 goals in 203 games for PSG and continues to provide for them when they are in need – with Neymar and Lionel Messi’s efforts currently being outdone.
