Kylian Mbappe’s contract with PSG is due to expire at the close of the 23/24 season. It is widely reported that the young footballer will not be renewing his contract with the French giants, thus making his career trajectory a fascinating topic of discourse.
Negotiations have become more intense given the enormous stakes involved. The pivotal element now hinges on whether PSG can persuade their football maestro to stay or if they should leverage the opportunity to offload him before his contract runs its course.
The latter strategy could save PSG from the financial stress of losing such a prized asset for free.
Reliable reports surfacing from the Spanish news outlet, Marca, have thrown more light on the circumstances surrounding Kylian Mbappe’s potential transfer.
According to these reports, a crucial factor that could determine the forward’s next move is an alleged loyalty bonus encapsulated in his contract, valid until June 2024.
The specific condition states that Mbappe will agree to terminate his contract earlier and leave PSG if he receives the aforementioned loyalty bonus.
If not, the French star would likely remain with the Parisians for the season and then shift his alliance to Real Madrid in January, preceding a free transfer.
The precise figures involved are staggering. It’s been suggested that Mbappe’s due benefits include a net salary of €60 million and a whopping €90 million loyalty bonus for the rest of his contract with the club at Parc des Princes.
Kylian Mbappe has not stayed mute on the buzz surrounding his career path. During the recent international break, the football prodigy spoke about his plans for the future. He said,
“I’ve already spoken about this, I’ve said that my objective is to stay at PSG…Why go to the end of my contract? There is nothing to explain, people can talk… Did I hesitate to come [to the press conference]? Not at all, I have a responsibility.”
