Kylian Mbappé’s move to Real Madrid is still in limbo, with the French superstar reportedly making some hefty demands to Florentino Pérez.
According to Spanish journalist Andi Onrubia, Mbappé is seeking a staggering €50 million per year in gross salary, a €120 million signing bonus, and additional bonuses for image rights.
These figures are close to what Real Madrid offered Mbappé in 2022, and while they are significant, they are reportedly within the club’s financial reach.

Waiting for a decision
Real Madrid is waiting for Mbappé to make a formal decision and communicate it to Paris Saint-Germain. Once that happens, it is expected that the move will be made public, unlike the drama that unfolded last year.
Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez is a huge admirer of Mbappé and believes he has the potential to be the next “Galactico.” He is more optimistic than ever that the deal will go through this time around.
Mbappé has been following the agreed-upon plan, which includes taking his time to make a decision and not rushing into anything.
Only time will tell if Mbappé will finally join Real Madrid, but the latest reports suggest that it is a very real possibility.
