Kylian Mbappe could be on his way to Real Madrid as soon as next week. The player was the only goalscorer for PSG across both legs as they were knocked out of the Champions League by Los Blancos.
Real Madrid tried to sign the forward this past summer, making a bid worth up to €200 million. Florentino Perez, the president of the Spanish giants, has long identified the player as a priority transfer target, and could finally get his man in a matter of days.
Kylian Mbappe could be headed to Madrid as soon as next week
The Frenchman is set to be offered a €25 million per season salary by Real Madrid. He was offered almost double that amount to stay at the French capital, but turned down the advances of Nasser Al-Khelaifi multiple times.
He wanted precedence over Neymar and Messi in terms of sporting decision, and wanted the project to be built around him. Since the two parties could not agree on the details of the contract, his contract situation has remained unresolved.
Kylian Mbappe has been respectful towards PSG throughout this time, and will continue to maintain it until the end of the season. The announcement for the transfer is expected to be held off until the end of the season, when his contract expires.
The 23-year-old will be receiving a sign-on fee between €60-80 million, alongside his salary. The 13-time Champions League winners out all other deals on hold in order to complete Mbappe’s transfer, and the striker is now set to complete his dream move to the Spanish capital.
