Kylian Mbappe 'set to receive huge payment from PSG' at midnight

Kylian Mbappe 'set to receive huge payment from PSG' at midnight

Kylian Mbappe is set to be paid €40 million by PSG on Tuesday, according to a new report.

The 24-year-old has been the subject of the main transfer saga this summer, with PSG reportedly convinced that he has agreed already terms to join Real Madrid in 2024.

Such a move would see Mbappe transfer to the Bernabeu as a free agent, given that his current PSG contract expires in 12 months' time.

As a result, PSG are keen to sell the striker, with Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol claiming that the French giants are willing to listen to 'any offer', including loan deals, for their star player.


On Saturday, the Daily Mirror reported that Liverpool were in talks over a temporary switch for the France international, and were ready to include a loan fee for a deal that would see Mbappe join for the 2023/24 season.


He has already rejected the opportunity to negotiate with Saudi Pro League side Al Hilal, after the club had a world-record bid of £259 million accepted by PSG.

Now, he could be in for a significant payday from his current club imminently.


Mbappe 'set for PSG bonus'

According to Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol, Mbappe is set to pocket a loyalty bonus contained within his PSG contract worth €60 million (around €55 million).

The bonus will reportedly be paid in advance of the 2023/24 season in two separate instalments.

The caveat, however, is that Mbappe must be a PSG player at the end of Monday - and as the hours tick down, that is looking ever more likely.


But it is claimed that the payment will be made in two instalments. Relevo report that the second of those payments is due on August 31, meaning PSG could save that fee if they can sell the French forward before that date.

That leaves interested clubs with one month to scramble to sign Mbappe - in the eyes of the reigning Ligue 1 champions, anyway.

Whether Liverpool succeed in the race is unclear, although while manager Jurgen Klopp didn't completely deny reports that the club were planning a potential deal, he was not too optimistic either.


He told reporters on Monday (quotes via The Athletic): "We laugh about it. I can say that I think he is a really good player. But the financial framework conditions don't suit us at all.

"I would not like to destroy the story but as far as I know there is nothing to it. Maybe someone else from the club is preparing something and wants to surprise me!"
