PSG Set To Offer Kylian Mbappe Monstrous £41 Million-A-Year Contract
Kylian Mbappe is poised to be offered a whopping £41 million-a-year contract by PSG in order to fend off interest from Real Madrid.
Los Blancos continue to court the French boy-wonder and the latest, as per AS, is that club president Florentino Perez wants to sign him in 2021, by which point he'll have a year on his current deal at the Parc des Princes.
And in order to get the 21-year old to stay put, the club are reportedly prepared to make him their highest-earner and hand him a salary that isn't far behind what Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, the world's two best players, are earning.
Mbappe currently takes home a very tidy £375,000 per week but if he signs the deal said to be on the table, he'll be on a crazy weekly salary of £750,000-a-week, which would eclipse the £600,000 Neymar, the world's most expensive player, currently takes home every seven days.
The proposed contract offer is to be tabled prior to the Euro 2020 tournament, where he is hoping to guide France to more international glory.

Mbappe, who has 23 goals in 27 games in all competitions, is always the subject of speculation regarding his future.
But when asked about his situation recently, the World Cup winner was quick to play things down for now.
He told BBC Sport: "Now I'm with PSG and I'm 100% with the club. I want to help the club grow this season, to win a lot of titles, so for me it's not good to talk about [my future].
"I think about the club because the club helped me. I came here at 18. I was a talent but I was not a superstar. Now I'm a superstar, thanks to PSG and the French national team.
"I have to stay calm and stay focused on PSG. After that, at the end of the season, we will see. But now I'm focused on my game."
