Paris Saint-Germain persuaded Kylian Mbappe to sign a new contract, one of the richest players in football history. The deal will keep the French striker in Paris as they seek a World Cup for the second year in a row with France and try to end the club’s series of failures. in the Champions League. His decision shattered Real Madrid’s hopes of lure Mbappé, arguably the best young player in the world, to one of the most successful teams in European football.
A 13-time European champion, Real Madrid have made a contract offer that would make Mbappe the highest-paid player in history.
The offer included a contract bonus of nearly $140 million, a salary of over $26 million each season, and full control over his likeness. However, perennial French champions PSG, financed by gas-rich Qatar, have prevented him from leaving for free agent by offering better terms. PSG offered a similar transfer fee, but a much higher base salary.
The club is due to announce the signing soon tonight. Mbappe said he would not be coming to Madrid on Saturday.
