Mbappe reportedly set to join Real Madrid on a five-year deal


Paris Saint-Germain F.C. (PSG) striker, Kylian Mbappe, has agreed to join Real Madrid this summer.

According to BBC, the France captain, 25, has told PSG that he intended to leave the club with his contract expiring in June.

Mbappe had not signed a contract with Real Madrid yet, but the deal could be announced once it was no longer possible for the clubs to meet in this season’s Champions League.

The World Cup winner has been PSG’s record goal scorer with 244 goals.

Mbappe wanted his future sorted before March, so on 13 February, before training, he met PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi and told him he was leaving and joining Real Madrid.

After reports emerged last Thursday that he would leave, Mbappe was left out of the starting line-up for Saturday’s match against Nantes, but came off the bench to score a penalty as PSG went 14 points clear at the top of Ligue 1.

He is set to sign a five-year deal with Real Madrid, earning 15 million euros (£12.8 million) a season, plus a 150 million euro (£128m) signing-on bonus to be paid over five years and he would keep a percentage of his image rights.

If Croatia midfielder Luka Modric leaves this summer, then Mbappe would inherit the number 10 shirt he wears for France.
