Paris Saint-Germain will offer striker Kylian Mbappe a £ 41 million a year contract to avoid losing the 21-year-old against Real Madrid in 2021.
The champions of Ligue 1 are eager to tie the advance before the European championships this summer and are willing to offer him a salary in the region of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Mbappe has been continuously connected with a move to the Spanish giants since it exploded onto the scene and won the 2018 World Cup with France.
The Spanish outlet AS now reports that club president Florentino Perez plans to sign the 21-year-old in 2021, when he will only have twelve months left for his contract.
Last summer Real Madrid lured Eden Hazard to Santiago Bernabeu with similar tactics, but the PSG contract would have frustrated Perez’s plans.
The new deal comes after the French newspaper L’Equipe revealed that Mbappe earns much less than teammate Neymar.
The Brazilian earns £ 600,000 a week, while Mbappe earns £ 375,000 a week.
The Frenchman’s new deal would make him the highest paid player at the Parc des Princes, with a weekly salary of over £ 750,000.
Mbappe fueled rumors that connect him in a move from PSG after starting an angry conversation with manager Thomas Tuchel as he was replaced during the 5-0 victory over Montpellier.
However, PSG sports director Leonardo quickly solved the problem, telling Canal +, as reported by Goal: “I have heard things about Mbappe, about his personality.
“It makes me feel uncomfortable. If a player leaves the pitch and talks to the coach, OK … He’s guilty. We will talk about it and solve it.
“But to say that he is a spoiled child, I don’t accept him. Because he is an adorable person, very busy and a fantastic player.”
Mbappe has scored twice since he pushed his tally for the season to 23 goals in 27 games.
