The American newspaper New York Times, which published this Tuesday an interview with Kylian Mbappe, also revealed the figures of the multimillion-dollar contract that Qatar-backed PSG offered the player. These figures convinced the striker to stay in the French capital and back out of his promise to sign with Real Madrid.
According to this information, Mbappe will receive $250 million over the three seasons of his contract, roughly $83 million per year, or $158 per minute.
The New York Times claims that Mbappe was incentivized with $125 million just to sign with the Parisians, the biggest payment ever made to an uncontracted player in the history of the sport.
Mbappe himself assures in the interview with the newspaper that the huge sums of money offered were not what made them take their final decision. “Because wherever I go, they’ll give me money,” he said.
The striker, who has been announced as a near-certain new signing for Real Madrid, has clarified that both the big and small decisions he has to make come after in-depth discussions with the only two advisers whose opinions really matter to him : his parents, writes Telegraph.
Kylian Mbappé sat down with The New York Times to discuss his past, his present and his future ambitions.
