After a period of outrage over Kylian Mbappe choosing to extend his contract with Paris Saint-Germain over a move to Real Madrid, the New York Times has revealed the financial details of Mbappe’s contract with his current club.
Mbappé extended his contract with the Paris side at the end of last season until the summer of 2025 to miss out on his imminent move to Real Madrid.
The American newspaper The New York Times reported that Mbappe will receive $250 million for the three seasons he signed as a player with PSG, which is the equivalent of $83 million per season, which is a huge increase from what he received from the French club with his previous contract before renewal.
The newspaper indicated that Mbappe received a $125 million renewal bonus, the highest amount paid to a player whose contract has expired in football history.
Mbappe has been with Paris Saint-Germain since the summer of 2017, when he joined from Monaco on loan with a mandatory buyout for 180 million euros.
Mbappe is currently gearing up to lead Paris Saint-Germain in an important match against Juventus scheduled for today, Tuesday, in the first round of the Champions League group stage.
