Finally, the drama around Kylian Mbappe’s transfer is over. Mbappe has decided to stay at Paris Saint-Germain after a serious meeting with his family and also with the owner of PSG. Kylian Mbappe has signed a three-year contract with the French League winner, which will keep him until 2025 at the club.
Mbappe was expected to leave PSG this summer on a free transfer. There was a massive probability that Real Madrid would sign the France international. Real Madrid, the La Liga champion, had been trying to get Kylian Mbappe. They offered around £200m for him, but Paris Saint-Germain rejected this unbelievable offer. However, Mbappe’s contract with PSG would expire this summer. So, everyone expected that he would join Real Madrid. Mbappe also mentioned his desire several times that he wants to play for the Los Blancos. But he made a U-turn last night. PSG convinced him to stay at the club.
Paris Saint-Germain have offered a mouth-watering proposal to Mbappe, which convinced him to renew the contract. PSG are ready to pay him £1m per week. That will make Mbappe the highest-paid player in the world. No other club has ever paid such money to any players.
However, Mbappe would also get no less salary if he joined Real Madrid. But what makes him want to stay at PSG for another three years? There are some rumors that PSG offered him some administrative power. According to some reports, Kylian Mbappe will have the power to choose the manager of this club. Moreover, PSG will pay him a massive amount if he can win the Ballon d’Or and Champions League. All these attractive offers convinced Mbappe to stay at the club.
La Liga will make a complaint against PSG
Kylian Mbappe’s U-turn didn’t make La Liga happy. La Liga considered the deal between PSG and Mbappe to be illegal. They released a statement in which it stated,
This type of agreement attacks the economic sustainability of European football, putting at risk hundreds of thousands of jobs and sporting integrity at risk – not only in European competitions but also in domestic leagues. LaLiga is going to file a complaint against PSG before UEFA, administrative and tax authorities in France, and before the competent bodies of the European Union, to continue defending the economic ecosystem of European football and its sustainability.
