Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has told his players that PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe will not be joining the club this summer, according to reports.
Following a week of contrasting reports regarding the 23-year-old’s future, Spanish journalist Guillem Balague has claimed that Perez informed Madrid’s players about the situation in the changing room following their goalless draw with Real Betis on Friday.
According to Sky Sports News earlier in the week, Mbappe was on the verge of joining Real Madrid, despite PSG offering an incredibly lucrative two-year contract extension.
The report claims that the French champions are willing to double the World Cup winner’s salary to €4 million, as well as a €100 million signing on bonus, plus several bonuses based on performances and whether or not they win the Champions League. This would make him the highest-paid footballer in the world.The French international’s contract is set to expire this summer following five incredibly successful seasons at the Parc des Princes. The forward has become one of the most in-demand players in European football, as he has scored 36 goals and provided 26 assists in his 45 club appearances this term.
