Mbappe's €70m Salary Demand Puts Real Madrid Deal on Hold

Mbappe's €70m Salary Demand Puts Real Madrid Deal on Hold



January 25th, 2024

Kylian Mbappé, the lightning-fast French superstar, continues to occupy the top spot in transfer market hot takes, with his potential move to Real Madrid hitting a potential snag over personal terms. Reports from German outlet Bild indicate that Mbappé's hefty demands have thrown a wrench in the "Galactico" homecoming narrative.

Mbappé's Astronomical Asking Price

The 24-year-old prodigy is reportedly seeking a staggering €70 million per year in wages, along with a €125 million transfer bonus, to complete the switch to Santiago Bernabéu. These numbers dwarf Real Madrid's current offer of €35 million per year, reflecting the immense value Mbappé carries in today's football landscape.

Madrid Digs its Heels In

While acknowledging Mbappé's talent, Real Madrid is hesitant to break the bank. Doubling their annual salary offer for one player goes against their financial prudence, especially with other transfer targets on the horizon. Additionally, they're reportedly seeking "written guarantees" from Mbappé regarding commitment and longevity, a request likely stemming from past transfer sagas like Gareth Bale's.

PSG Plays Hardball

Adding further fuel to the fire, Paris Saint-Germain is determined to keep its prized asset. The Qatari-backed club is rumored to be preparing a €100 million annual wage offer to convince Mbappé to remain in Ligue 1. This lucrative counteroffer complicates Real Madrid's pursuit, creating a bidding war of epic proportions.

Transfer Saga Drags On

With such contrasting demands and PSG's persistent presence, the Mbappé transfer saga shows no signs of a swift resolution. Both clubs face tough decisions: Madrid must weigh Mbappé's talent against its financial sustainability, while PSG must decide whether €100 million per year is the price of Mbappé's happiness.
