Kylian Mbappe is poised to receive a substantial signing-on bonus should he finalize his much-anticipated move to Real Madrid in the upcoming summer transfer window. The French star, a long-standing target for Los Blancos, is reportedly on the brink of joining the Santiago Bernabeu side, as outlined by Le Parisien (via Managing Madrid).
According to Football Espana, Real Madrid is preparing to make a significant financial commitment to secure Mbappe’s services, even though he will be available on a free transfer. It’s been indicated that the club intends to offer the French captain a staggering €100 million as a signing-on bonus.
Mbappe, who has entered the final phase of his contract with Paris Saint-Germain, appears destined to depart the club. Reports suggest that he informed the French outfit at the beginning of the season of his intention not to extend his tenure beyond the summer.
Despite a previous change of heart in the summer of 2022, Mbappe has remained a top priority for Real Madrid. The latest reports indicate that he is willing to accept a reduction in salary to facilitate his move to the Spanish capital.
Moreover, it’s been disclosed that Real Madrid is prepared to grant Mbappe a 60% share of his image rights, surpassing the typical club standard of 50%. The agreement is structured in a manner that will see Mbappe earn less than his current annual salary of €25 million at PSG.
