Kylian Mbappe transfer saga 2024: Follow for latest updates

Kylian Mbappe has finally revealed to PSG that he wants to leave the club this summer when his contract runs out. The attacker has also made it clear that he will not change his mind and doesn’t want to receive a counter proposal from PSG for a new deal. 

Real Madrid have been the favourites to land the France captain for years, and could finally get their man this summer. But they haven’t reached an agreement with the player yet. And until they have a final decision on the contract, the transfer cannot be taken for granted. 

Last time around, Madrid offered €200 million for Mbappe and had agreed personal terms with the player too. But, he ended up staying with PSG and signed a new contract too. At the time, however, Mbappe called Florentino Perez himself to tell him that he wouldn’t be coming. This move potentially saved the relationship and could now lead to his arrival in the Spanish capital at last. 

What’s the contract looking like?

Last time around, Mbappe was offered a massive salary to become a new Real Madrid player. But this time, his wages are significantly lower than the last deal offered. As a comparison, they are lower than his current PSG salary too. 

Marca reports that Kylian Mbappe’s contract with Madrid will be five years long, until 2029. The contract will pay the player a salary close that of their existing highest earners such as Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and David Alaba at €15 and 20 million net per year plus bonus for objectives. In contrast, he was earning €32 million net per season.

The player will receive a signing bonus worth €50 million, close to what he was supposed to receive with PSG as a loyalty bonus. But, he turned down the payment as he was set to leave the club and wanted to part ways on good terms, having spent six years with them.

Mikel Arteta speaks on Kylian Mbappe rumours 

Recently, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta spoke about the possibility of Kylian Mbappe potentially ending up in the Premier League. The likes of Manchester City, Liverpool FC, Chelsea and Manchester United have also been linked with the player. 

“Why not?,” Mikel Arteta said. 

“If we want to be the best team, we are going to need the best talent & the best players”.

“I am not involved. Maybe Edu and the owners are, I’m not in those conversations until the last stage”. 

Has Mbappe revealed his decision to everybody? 

Kylian Mbappe has now announced the decision not only to the PSG board but also to his teammates at PSG as part of a training session. He intends to stay at the club and see the season through, but the feeling at PSG is that Madrid is where he is headed next.

In addition, the Real Madrid dressing room feels the same. Aurelien Tchouameni, his France teammate, was active on social media when his decision to leave PSG was announced, hinting at the long drawn saga finally ending when the summer transfer window opens. 

Kylian Mbappe’s PSG career

Mbappe is Paris Saint-Germain’s record goalscorer in all competitions, despite being 24 and joining them six years ago. He has scored 243 goals in 290 appearances. Overall, he has scored 316 and assisted 129 goals in 425 career appearances for club and country, winning 15 trophies.

Signing from Monaco, he was the most expensive teenager in football history and remains the second-most expensive player ever after his £166m move to Paris Saint-Germain in 2018. But that investment has surely paid off after six years, considering the value he has brought to the club. The club has won every domestic trophy multiple times with him, except for the Champions League. And this year is the final opportunity for them to end the drought for European silverware.

  1. How old is Mbappe?

    25 years old.
