Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly offered Kylian Mbappe an enormously lucrative deal to tempt the forward into staying in the French capital with his current contract set to expire this summer.
The 23-year-old had been linked with a move to Real Madrid but the Ligue 1 champions are reportedly confident he will commit his future.
Mbappe has scored 24 goals and provided 13 assists in Ligue 1 this season so it is easy to see why the likes of Madrid are so eager to sign him this summer.
He was signed by PSG in the summer of 2018 for £130million following a season on loan from Monaco and the French giants will be desperate not to lose him on a free transfer.
The Qatari-backed club are looking to make Mbappe an astronomical offer that could have a similar inflationary effect on the world of football as Neymar’s transfer did back in 2017.
It could even leave the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham feeling the effects for years to come.
Back in the summer of 2017, Antonio Conte spoke of the impact Neymar’s transfer had had on Chelsea’s own transfer business.
Alvaro Morata had just arrived for a club-record £70million and the Italian appeared resigned to the fact that this was the new normal.
“It is a difficult topic. Neymar is one of the best players in the world, all these types of players finish their career in the same team or they change,” Conte said at the time.
“We must be ready to accept this type of money. For a normal player it is £40million-£50million, for a top player you have to spend this type of money. It is an impressive amount of money, if PSG are able to do this then why not?”.
The new deal tabled by PSG for Mbappe will reportedly see him paid £42.5million-per-year, equalling a whopping £817,000-per-week.
For context, the deal that saw Cristiano Ronaldo return to Manchester United has seen the Portuguese earn a reported £500,000-per-week.
Mbappe will not only earn millions each year, he will also reportedly be paid a signing-on bonus of £85.1million.
According to Le Parisien, the lucrative deal has been agreed, though it is yet to be officially announced.
Other sources have reported that Mbappe is still keeping his options open amid the strong links to Real Madrid.
If the new contract were to be signed, it could leave similarly sought after players with the power to demand similarly outlandish terms when signing for their new clubs.
If that were to be the case, it would undoubtedly be felt at Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal.
