Kylian Mbappe is offered ‘complete CONTROL’ of PSG’s sporting project – including hiring and firing managers and team-mates – claims a remarkable report from Spain… in addition to £4m per month and a £100m signing-on fee to stop Real Madrid’s pursuit
Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly made a desperate attempt to keep Kylian Mbappe at the Parc des Princes by sensationally offering him control of sporting operations.
The 23-year-old’s PSG contract expires at the end of the season and is now on the verge of joining Real Madrid for nothing.
But despite there being just six weeks until he becomes a free agent, the Ligue 1 giants have made the Frenchman a staggering offer in a bid to persuade him from leaving.
According to El Chiringuito TV, PSG have offered to make Mbappe ‘the owner of the project’ from next season, where they will allow him a say in changing the manager and who his team-mates are going forward.
This offer would be on top of their reported offer of making him the highest paid player in football, with Sky Sports claiming that the French champions would be willing to give him an eye-watering deal of £4million a month – double his previous salary.
Sky Sports also claimed that Mbappe would receive a huge signing-on bonus of up to £100m if he re-signed with PSG, including concessions over image rights and any bonuses for on-pitch matters.
PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi reported decision to give Mbappe control of sporting operations would allow him to have his say on Mauricio Pochettino’s future, who has been linked with the exit after their Champions League exit to Real Madrid in the last-16.
Pochettino was adamant in April that he and Mbappe would ‘100 per cent’ be at PSG next season but that appears to not be the case as the season draws to a close.
Newspapers in Spain claimed Mbappe would be making an official announcement of his move to Real once they’ve played Liverpool in the Champions League final on May 28.
‘First Paris, then Mbappe,’ is the headline on Tuesday’s edition of AS, referencing the fact the final is to be held at the Stade de France.
They report that Mbappe plans to say his goodbyes at PSG in the next week, with Real officially announcing the free transfer after the final.
AS report that Mbappe will be the highest paid player in the history of the club and his release clause will be the largest in world football, with a five-year contract set to be signed.
Marca also lead with Mbappe, with his face on their front cover and the headline: ‘Yes, Mbappe has finalised the agreement to become a Madrid player.’
It all appears to be heading quickly towards a conclusion after Mbappe teased that an announcement is imminent at the Ligue 1 awards ceremony on Sunday night.
‘I can’t say about my future but you’ll know very soon… it’s almost decided,’ the French international said.
‘This isn’t the right moment but yes, yes… my decision is almost done’.
He was named Ligue 1’s player of the season for the third consecutive year at the awards ceremony.
