“Mbappe has agreed to forgo bonuses worth £70 million ($127 million) and is still refusing to sign a new contract,” the Daily Mail reported on Aug. 18.
“Talks about Mbappe’s future have been ongoing for the past few years. He had previously said he would join Real Madrid when his contract expires in the summer of 2022, but he returned to Paris Saint-Germain and signed a deal until 2024. It includes an option to play one more year until 2025.”
“Mbappe’s future is back in the spotlight this season. He will not use his option for a one-year extension. Paris Saint-Germain could therefore lose Mbappe to free agency next summer.”레모나토토 도메인
Ahead of the 2023-24 season, the rift between Paris Saint-Germain and Mbappe deepened. The club wanted to sign Mbappe to an extension. They didn’t want to lose him for ‘free’ as he would be a free agent at the end of the season.
Mbappe refused, and Paris Saint-Germain wanted to sell him to another club in order to recoup their transfer fee. In fact, there was even a Saudi Arabian team that made an offer of €700 million. But Mbappe turned them all down.
Paris Saint-Germain responded by excluding Mbappe from first-team training. He was also left out of the club’s Asian preseason tour in South Korea and Japan.
After the season began, the club and Mbappe’s side dramatically resolved their differences. In the process, Mbappe apparently waived a £70 million bonus.
With this news, the possibility of a move to Real Madrid is growing once again. Real Madrid are very keen to sign Mbappe. Mbappe is also interested in joining Real Madrid.
Meanwhile, Mbappe has continued to lead Paris Saint-Germain in scoring this season. He has 15 goals and one assist in 15 games in all competitions. In Ligue 1, he leads the team in scoring with 13 goals in 11 games.
