PSG To Make Kylian Mbappe Highest-Paid Player With €38 Million Per Year Pay Rise
Paris Saint-Germain want to offer Kylian Mbappe a mammoth five-year €250 million contract to fend off interest from Manchester City.
It had recently been reported that the Blues are still monitoring the French boy-wonder's situation but according to El Pais, via SPORT, PSG are prepared to show Mbappe just how much they value him by giving him a monumental €38 million-per-season wage increase.

Kylian Mbappe wants to join Manchester City in the future because he wants to work with Pep Guardiola. PSG are therefore urgently trying to renew his contract to until 2025 and make him the highest-paid player in the world. (@diegotorresro)#PSG #ManCity- Transfer News (@TransferBrief) July 18, 2019
Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the Parisians president, is said to be content with losing Neymar to Barcelona and freeing up his wages so that they can tie Mbappe down for the foreseeable future.
Wages of around €50m-per-season would see him become the second highest-paid player in world football, while he'd also be on €20 million more than what Neymar currently pockets in his bank account in the French capital each annum.
Even for a global superstar like Mbappe the money we are talking about really is something else and somehow makes Matthijs's de Ligt's Juventus wages look a tad ordinary.
The Dutchman's contract is the latest bit of master negotiating from superagent Mino Raiola, who has managed to see his client earn a basic salary of £14.5 million per season in Turin after interest from PSG and Barcelona dropped.
But when add-ons are factored in courtesy of various performance-related bonuses being achieved, De Ligt could well find himself on £416,000-a-week and £21.7 million per season.
