This is not the first time that Kylian Mbappé’s contract has made noise. The Team had revealed a few weeks ago that the extension of the PSG star striker was not for three years but only for two seasons – the last being optional -, which changes everything and could still happen to the Frenchman to animate the transfer market next summer. But this time, it was the amounts that came to light. And they make you dizzy.

Or even 90 million at the end of the summer transfer market of 2024. Enough to increase the total envelope according to The Parisian to… 630 million euros gross if the international tricolor stays on the banks of the Seine until the end of his contract.
Back to the wall when he was free of any contract last June, PSG could hardly do otherwise. The pressure put on by Real Madrid, who had been eyeing the French prodigy for months, forced the French champions to break the bank in unparalleled proportions to keep their jewel. It remains to be seen whether PSG will not put themselves in the red with a contract of this size. And if the clauses of the contract will push Kylian Mbappé to stay until the end despite the Madrid sirens who will quickly return…
