The future of Kylian Mbappé continues to be a hot topic. Josep Pedrerol, a Spanish journalist who is known for his close ties to Real Madrid, recently reported that the French striker’s salary would be reduced if he were to join the Spanish club. However, another journalist, Mario Cortegana, has contradicted Pedrerol’s report, claiming that Mbappé would still be the highest-paid player at Real Madrid if he were to sign.
Pedrerol’s report was based on information from his sources within the Real Madrid hierarchy. He claimed that the club was willing to offer Mbappé a contract worth €200 million over five years, but that the salary would be lower than what he is currently earning at Paris Saint-Germain.
Cortegana, who is a journalist for the Spanish newspaper El Confidencial, has a reputation for being accurate when it comes to Real Madrid news. He claims that Mbappé would only agree to join Real Madrid if he were to be the highest-paid player in the squad.
“Mbappé has been given the keys to Qatar and France,” Cortegana said. “He is not going to accept coming to Real Madrid for less money, especially after confirming that he is earning €75 million net at PSG.”
The contradiction between Pedrerol and Cortegana’s reports has added to the uncertainty surrounding Mbappé’s future. It is still unclear where the French striker will play next season, but it is clear that he will have a number of options to choose from.
