Kylian Mbappe signs new contract and becomes the club’s highest-paid player’


Kylian Mbappe has reportedly signed his Real Madrid contract and agreed on a deal until 2029 with the La Liga giants.

According to Marca, Mbappe has put pen to paper on his deal to join Madrid two weeks ago, with the player ‘making a firm commitment’ to the Bernabeu outfit.

Mail Sport reported last week that Madrid are willing to make Mbappe the club’s top earner, surpassing the £10.3m per season they pay Jude Bellingham and Vinicius Junior.

They will also pay a signing-on fee of around £85.5million and open talks over what percentage of his image rights he retains. 

The report from Marca claims Mbappe’s camp told PSG ‘not to bother’ making him further offers to stay at the French club because he had already struck a deal with Madrid.

Los Blancos had contacted the player’s entourage in the early days of the new year to enquire if he was still planning to join Madrid after negotiations between the two camps the previous summer, it says, with Mbappe giving a ‘positive’ response.

It adds that Madrid no longer saw Mbappe as a player they wanted to sign ‘at any price’, knowing that they already had Vinicius Jr and Bellingham as ‘two of the best footballers on the planet’.

But at the start of February, the club opened full negotiations looking to seal the deal as quickly as possible.

This comes after PSG club president Nassr Al-Khelaifi previously stated that he wanted the winger to stay at the club, claiming that it was the best fit for him. 

He told RMC: ‘Look, I’m not hiding anything.‘For sure I want Mbappe to stay. For me, he is the best in the world and for me the best club for Kylian is Paris.’

Mbappe joined the Parisian side in 2017 from Monaco, initially on a loan deal, before the French giants paid £155m to make his transfer permanent.
