Kylian Mbappe tipped to make drastic Liverpool and Real Madrid decision that could cost him €75million-a-year

Kylian Mbappe tipped to make drastic Liverpool and Real Madrid decision that could cost him €75million-a-year

It would be a major decision.

Kylian Mbappe has been tipped to snub both Real Madrid and Liverpool this summer.

The France skipper is out of contract in the summer, and as things stand, is set to walk away from Paris Saint-Germain for free at the end of the season.

Mbappe can sign a pre-contract deal this month with a club outside France, and there has been plenty of speculation linking the 25-year-old to Real Madrid and Liverpool.

Of course, while Mbappe’s move wouldn’t include a transfer fee, it will still be an incredibly expensive deal to complete, with The Telegraph having claimed the player expects a salary of €75million a year (£64.5million) after tax, which equates to £1.24million a week. Moreover, there is also likely to be a significant signing-on fee.

Nevertheless, PSG are pushing for the player to stay at the club - a decision former PSG manager and player Luis Fernandez reckons Mbappe will settle for.

“Yes, (I think that) he will stay at PSG,” Fernandez claimed in an interview with beIN Sports.

“When I hear everyone’s statements, from the president of PSG, who takes the initiative and talks about the issue, when I see Kylian doing the same after a match about a signed agreement, when I see that PSG wants to invest in this new technical centre.

“We have brought Randal, Kolo Muani and Dembele, who are friends that Kylian wanted to have by his side. I think he will stay at PSG next season.”

Earlier this month, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said he has a “gentleman’s agreement” with Mbappe and “wants him to stay”.

“For me, he is the best player in the world, that’s the truth at this moment in time,” Al-Khelaifi told RMC Sport [via Football365].

“I have a good relationship with Kylian, he is a big player, personality and man. He said after the Trophee du Champions game, he has an agreement with me. I don’t want to get it out there.

“He knows what it is. He’s 25 years old, still young but the best player in the world. He’s going to win lots of trophies with the club and with the national team too. For the next ten years or so.

“I don’t want to talk about money and what the agreement is about. It’s not an agreement about money.

“It’s a gentleman’s agreement between the player, the president of the club, the sporting director and the coach. It’s more than just a signed agreement.

“Listen, I won’t hide anything. I absolutely want Kylian to stay. Absolutely. For me, the best player in the world is him and the best thing for Kylian is PSG.”
