Revealed: Kylian Mbappé’s massive financial demands to sign for Real Madrid

An insight into the extent of the financial demands laid out by Kylian Mbappé to the powers that be at La Liga giants Real Madrid has been provided this evening.

It is of course football’s worst kept secret that negotiations over a summer transfer are currently in full swing between France international Mbappé, and the brass at the Santiago Bernabéu.

After the former came to the definitive decision not to put pen to paper on fresh terms with Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid were given the green light to reignite their long-standing pursuit of the 25-year-old.

Mbappé, for his part, is understood to be desperate to make the move to Spain’s capital, where he would join the likes of Jude Bellingham and Vinícius Jr. in a staggeringly star-studded squad under the watch of Carlo Ancelotti.

The prolific frontman, however, is still not ready to make it easy for Florentino Pérez and co. to find an agreement.

This comes amid claims that Mbappé is seeking an eye-watering pay day to seal his long-awaited La Liga switch.

As per a report from Diario AS, the PSG man has laid out salary demands of 50 million gross (25 million net) to Real Madrid.

On top of this, he is seeking a 120 million signing bonus, added to further by a host of commissions, centering largely on image rights.

This actually represents a massive cut on his current financial earnings in Paris, but it now remains to be seen whether the Bernabéu hierarchy are willing to bend to the demands of their long-time no.1 target.
