Kylian Mbappe ‘agrees’ new PSG contract as Liverpool and Real Madrid dealt massive blow | Football | Sport


Kylian Mbappe is close to snubbing the likes of Real Madrid and Liverpool by signing a two-year contract extension with Paris Saint-Germain, according to reports. The 23-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from the French capital over the last few months, with Real Madrid said to be keen on bringing him to the Bernabeu on a free transfer at the end of the season.

Liverpool have also been credited with a long-standing interest in landing Mbappe, who will be out of contract at the end of the current campaign as things stand. However, the Frenchman is now set to stay in Paris for the foreseeable future after reaching an agreement in principle over a new two-year deal with the option of a third, according to Le Parisien.

The report states that Mbappe’s representatives have approved PSG’s latest offer, which includes an eye-watering net salary of around £42.5million per year. The forward will also receive a lucrative signing-on bonus in the region of £85.1m if he officially puts pen to paper between now and the expiry of his current deal at the end of June.

Those in power at PSG are said to be adamant that Mbappe will sign his new and improved contract as soon as the formalities have been ironed out by all parties in the not-too-distant future. The idea of Mbappe agreeing a new deal with PSG has been denied by Fabrizio Romano, though, who claims that he is still weighing up his future in advance of next season.

Real Madrid are known to be huge admirers of Mbappe and reportedly saw a nine-figure bid for the Paris native rejected by PSG just hours before last summer’s transfer deadline. It seems as though they could now be forced to look elsewhere in order to reinforce their attacking ranks after failing in their efforts to poach Mbappe’s signature at the expense of his current employers.

Mbappe has chipped in with 35 goals in all competitions for PSG this season and will be expected to serve as their attacking talisman for at least the next two years if he decides to extend his spell at the club over the coming weeks. He refused to rule out the possibility of staying at PSG when quizzed on his future last month but insisted that he was yet to make a final decision on whether or not to leave the club ahead of next season.


“I haven’t made my choice on the future, everyone knows that,” Mbappe told Amazon Prime Video. “I’m thinking, there are new elements and a lot of parameters. If I had made my decision, I would’ve announced it.

“Is it possible to stay at PSG? Yes, of course. There is no need to talk a lot, there are new elements that I will consider for my future. It’s not an easy decision, my family will help me. I don’t want to make any mistake, my choice hasn’t been made, the whole world knows that.”
