Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe is ready to give up a loyalty bonus worth $85.5m in his contract but has made it clear to the club that he will not sign a new deal.
According to 90min writer Graeme Bailey, the World Cup winner has agreed to waive the bonus that he is due over the course of this season after joining the Parisian giants from Monaco back in the summer of 2017.
Kylian Mbappe’s contract at PSG up next summer
The move is seen by many to be a sweetener by Mbappe who has decided not to extend his current deal at Paris Saint-Germain until 2025- meaning he will be available on a free transfer next summer.
Real Madrid are currently playing without a recognized number nine and are red hot favorites to snap up the Frenchman in 2024 whilst Liverpool have also been linked.
After a high-profile fallout with Mbappe in July, the club reversed their decision to banish him from the first-team squad in an attempt to keep him for the long-term future. Sources close to the deal understand that the Parisians remain hopeful they can reach an agreement before 30 June 2024, which would potentially include a release clause. However, this is not believed to be under consideration at this stage.
