Kylian Mbappé will finally leave Paris Saint-Germain after the end of the 2023/24 season. After months of rumors and speculation about his future, he decided not to renew his contract in France nor activate the automatic extension clause until 2025, putting an end to a successful seven-year stint. During that time he not only helped the team become one of the best in Europe, but he himself achieved world star status.

Revealed! The contract that Mbappé would've already signed with Real Madrid

According to Marca newspaper, his future will be at Real Madrid, with whom he signed an agreement a couple of weeks ago to join as a free agent as of July 1. If this news is confirmed, Los Merengues will finally have the top-level forward they have been looking for since the departure of Karim Benzema to Al-Ittihad in 2023.

To achieve this agreement, Mbappé had to resign a lot of money. The Spanish side have a very strict salary cap policy to avoid conflicts between players in the squad and so he will have a much lower salary than at PSG, although part of that amount will be compensated with bonuses and performance awards.

However, the French striker has a plan to make money in other ways. According to the newspaper AS, Kylian filed an application with the European Union Intellectual Property Office through a law firm on February 8 to register the trademark of his surname and his usual gesture of celebrating goals: his arms crossed. That decision will allow him the commercial use of those trademarks for the sale of different products, such as clothing, toys, video games, footwear and cosmetics.

It is an iconic celebration

Over the past few years, it has become commonplace for soccer players to repeat their goal celebrations until they have become an image known to fans around the world. Kylian Mbappé usually crosses his arms, while Cristiano Ronaldo jumps in the air and falls with his arms and legs outstretched (something that other stars such as Alejandro Garnacho have imitated). Lionel Messi also has his own: he points the index fingers of each hand toward the sky. And Erling Haaland points one finger to his ear and the other upwards.
