PSG must pay a fortune to sell Kylian Mbappé or they'll lose him for freeYes, just like you read. PSG wants a fortune for Kylian Mbappé, but still, they would have to pay a fortune to sell him.
It is very likely that if PSG wants to sign Lionel Messi in the next summer transfer market they will have to get rid of Kylian Mbappé. The idea of sending both together to the field is extraordinary but it could be difficult to become true because of the high salary the Argentinian will demand. It will be only reserved for videogames.
It is also reported and suspected that the club does need to sell Mbappé for two reasons: the first one is that their finances are not so well, and a huge income of money by selling him would not be only beneficial, but also necessary. The other one is that the Frenchman’s contract is expiring at the end of June 2022, and if he does not renew soon, he could probably leave as a free agent. That would be an extreme disappointment for the club who paid AS Monaco over $170 million in 2017 for his transfer.
But allegedly, they would still have to pay a lot of money, even if there they reach terms with another club to sell the 22-year-old rough diamond. This comes out after a report from L’Equipe, which states that the French champions have already paid €145 million ($175 million), but still should have to pay some other €35 million that are pending. That means another $42 million that will only be paid if the player is transferred or renews the contract with the club.
It is a secret clause that was completely unknown until now. Meanwhile, Real Madrid is looking closely after Mbappé since it’s one of the biggest priorities for the Spanish board. Apart from the French star they are chasing Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland. We are sure that this will be one of the most interesting movies in the transfer market in 2021.
