Real Madrid are intent on signing Paris Saint-Germain and are prepared to offer him an annual wage of €35m, say reports.
Le10 Sport cite claims that the French forward will be offered a whopping €650k per week by Los Blancos – a wage which will only be bettered in football by Lionel Messi’s annual wage of €40m at Barcelona.
The striker is said by reports to be the ‘long-term goal’ for Madrid and is said to be a cornerstone of Zinedine Zidane’s demands to strengthen his side.
El Chiringuito reported in September that Madrid have already paid €35m plus a further €5m in variables for the deal, with a total payment of €225m plus €50m in variables, in what was an outlandish claim.
The 20-year-old striking sensation scooped the Ligue 1 player of the year award for last season and hinted that he could be open to a move to another club, with Madrid strongly linked.
Diario AS have previously that ‘a project outside of Paris could seduce him’ although a summer move this year is unlikely, ‘with not even a €300m bid enough’ to secure a move.
Mbappe has netted 62 goals in 92 games for PSG and was the top scorer in Ligue 1 last campaign with 32 strikes to his name.
The striker joined PSG from Monaco in the summer of 2017 for a total fee in the region of €170m – making him the world’s second most expensive player, behind teammate Neymar.
