Kylian Mbappe ‘considers extending his contract at PSG’ despite Real Madrid interest… with an offer on the table that would put him on the same salary tier as £600k-a-week Neymar
- Kylian Mbappe may choose to stay at PSG despite interest from Real Madrid
- The club chairman has reportedly offered him a new contract beyond 2022
- The deal would have him on the same pay tier as the £600k-a-week Neymar
While there has been much talk of Kylian Mbappe leaving PSG, it now seems he could be staying in Paris by accepting a contract extension, according to French newspaper L’Equipe.
Real Madrid have stepped up their pursuit for the skilled Frenchman, although PSG are digging in their heels to keep him, reportedly willing to let him go on a free transfer in 2022 rather than sell him below his transfer value.
Mbappe is said to be happy in his home country, and PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi reportedly has an offer on the table that would see Mbappe on the same salary tier as Neymar.

He has been offered a new contract which would put him on the same salary tier as Neymar
The world’s most expensive footballer Neymar is currently on huge £600,000-a-week wages with the French champions.
That’s by far the highest in Ligue 1, and almost double what Mbappe earns.
Mbappe has scored 90 goals in 120 appearances for PSG, and is widely regarded as one of the best footballers in the world.
So it makes sense they want to keep him beyond the end of his 2022 contract, but may have to fork over a high salary to do so.

They signed him for £166million from Monaco in August 2017 and are determined to keep him unless a substantial offer is received for the French World Cup winner.
With the financial uncertainty caused by the coronavirus crisis, clubs are less willing to make big money moves.
The French government recently cancelled the remainder of the Ligue 1 season, crowning PSG as champions despite not all the games being completed.
