Throughout the just-ended summer transfer window, the news was that Mbappe has made it clear that he wanted to leave PSG. On the other hand, PSG insisted that they don’t plan to sell the 22-year-old French striker.
Kylian Mbappe’s heart has always been at Real Madrid. From his childhood to his days at Monaco between 2013 and 2017, to PSG, the Frenchman never shies away from the desire of playing for Real Madrid.
All his football idols including Cristiano Ronaldo, have played at Real Madrid and he is desperately seeking the opportunity to complete that circle.
Due to this, Kylian Mbappe reportedly rejected three opportunities PSG gave him to extend his contract with the French club last season.
Now, he has just less than a season left on his contract with PSG, and the French club are still hoping that before January 2022, the French striker would agree to extend his stay in Paris, his city of birth.
According to reports, PSG’s last attempted to convince Mbappe to stay at PSG by offering him an opportunity to be the second-highest-paid footballer in the world, second to Lionel Messi.
From our findings, in PSG’s latest attempt to keep Mbappe a bit longer at the club, the French side offered him a €45 million-per-year deal until 2024.
If he had signed the deal, Mbappe would have been earning more than Neymar who is currently earning about €36.8 million per year at PSG. He would have been second to Messi who currently earns €71 million per year since he joined the club in August 2021.
However, Kylian Mbappe turned down such an offer to focus on his dream of playing for the Spanish La Liga giants, Real Madrid. Hence, the 22-year-old striker maintains his €18 million-per-week pay at the club.
Real Madrid’s reaction to how Kylian Mbappe loves Madrid
Real Madrid have not also hidden their love for Mbappe. They spent the whole summer transfer window trying all they could to bring the French striker to Madrid.
First, they made an offer worth £137 million but PSG said it was not big enough for the services of the 22-year-old striker.
Yet, Real Madrid did not give up, the Spanish giants tried again. This time around, the club made an offer worth £145.6 million, but PSG turned it down again.
When the world thought that Real Madrid could not do more, they made a whopping £189 million offer for the striker on transfer deadline day, but PSG turned it down to the dismay of the world of football.
As it stands, Real Madrid would hope that Mbappe would insist on not accepting a contract extension at PSG until the winter transfer window opens in January. Once the Frenchman holds on until winter, Real Madrid’s last resort would be to offer Mbappe a pre-contract that will tie him down until the 2022 summer transfer window opens.
At that point, Mbappe’s contract with PSG would have expired. Hence, Mbappe could leave PSG for Real Madrid for free.
