The Kylian Mbappé saga is still far from over. It seemed like everything would be sorted out in January, but that was far from the case. At first, it was said that a decision would be made before the middle of the month. However, the player is still undecided about where he will play, but he is clear that he wants to leave PSG.
That is what the German newspaper BILD reports: “Mbappé has already made the decision to leave. The striker wants to play for Real Madrid next season,” they explain. This is a very important piece of news, given the soap opera that has been going on, and it could confirm that the future of the Bondy wonderkid lies away from the Parc des Princes.
However, the report also mentions a major problem that Mbappé will face in order to fulfill his dream: “The Frenchman would demand an annual salary of 70 million euros,” they say. This is an absolutely exorbitant salary that would exceed the 30 million euros that Real Madrid would never want to pay in any case.
BILD also reports on PSG’s offer: 70 million euros. That is what the French footballer is currently earning. Mbappé, therefore, would not improve his salary and would want to keep the same amount if he signed for Real Madrid.
The offices at Valdebebas do not hide their intentions. They want Mbappé, but they know that there is no longer as much urgency as there was a couple of years ago when he rejected Real Madrid. Much less for that price, but the reality is that with Vinicius in superstar mode and a Bellingham who surprises every day, there is no need to break the bank.
Florentino Pérez hinted in Saudi Arabia that there would be an effort to sign Mbappé, but now he is faced with a real problem. It seems that Mbappé’s camp will not back down on the salary front.
What happens next?
It is still too early to say what will happen next in the Mbappé saga. Real Madrid will have to decide whether or not they are willing to meet his salary demands. If they are not, then Mbappé could stay at PSG or move to another club.
One thing is for sure, this story is not over yet.
