According to a source engaged in the negotiations, Kylian Mbappe, the star player for France, has turned down “several tens of millions” of euros in an attempt to ease the possibility of leaving Paris Saint-German on Thursday.
The person who was engaged in the negotiations said that Mbappe declined bonuses worth between 60 and 70 million euros in an effort to make it easier for him to leave the team since his contract is about to expire in June.
The decision, which was made as part of a deal reached with PSG last summer, is viewed by the star striker as a calculated move to clear the path for a potential exit without putting a financial strain on the team. These figures have been the subject of rumors regarding loyalty bonuses totaling 80 million euros and extra monies totaling 100 million euros.
Mbappe emphasized the significance of a deal he signed with the club president to guarantee the wellbeing of all parties involved while maintaining silent about his future plans. Most importantly, the deal protects PSG should Mbappe leave without requiring a transfer fee.
Under the terms of the 2022 contract, the football player received an incredible 72 million euros in salary annually in addition to a large 150 million euro signing bonus and increasing loyalty payments that increased to 90 million euros by the third year. Had he stayed until June without extending his contract, Mbappe may have received a windfall of more than 200 million euros.
Mbappe will be a free agent this summer and might fetch a high signing-on fee from a team that is interested in signing him.
