It seems that even the Spanish government will do its part to facilitate Mbappé's arrival at the Santiago Bernabeu

The government of the Community of Madrid is developing a law that is already popularly known as the 'Mbappé Law'. According to El Nacional, the new rule will eliminate the payment of the autonomous tax for foreign individuals who settle in Spain and make some kind of investment. This means that the French striker, in the event of materializing his arrival to Real Madrid, will not have to pay such high taxes and would pay just 24.5% tax, which would be just 2% higher than what a person who earns around 20 thousand euros per year pays, although the difference is that Mbappé would earn up to 30 million net per year.

This information has been replicated by various media in Spain, including Mundo Deportivo, which has generated much criticism of the Spanish government and has led to speculation about the power of Real Madrid. In the past, in 2005 to be exact, there was also a very similar case that is remembered as the 'Beckham Law', which occurred two years after the former English midfielder signed for Real Madrid.

That measure consisted of a tax regime that allowed foreigners who moved to Spain to work to pay a fixed tax rate of 24% regardless of income. Until then, foreigners who resided in Spain for more than 183 days, had to pay a global tax with rates of up to 47%, which caused many soccer players to think twice before signing for a Spanish club, since a large part of their salaries went in taxes.

In this regard, it is worth remembering that many players of both Real Madrid and FC Barcelona have had problems with the Treasury for the payment of taxes. From Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and even Gerard Piqué, have been involved in such problems and it seems that in Madrid, they are doing their best so that Kylian Mbappé finally joins the team of the Spanish capital, which seems inevitable, since the Frenchman has said that he will not change his mind about staying in Paris.

Mbappé plays less and less at PSG

Speaking about Kylian Mbappé, the French star is playing less and less minutes for PSG, who already seem to be preparing for the departure of their star player this summer. While Mbappé remains key in important duels and will surely be crucial in the UEFA Champions League semifinal duels, in the last Ligue 1 match he was left on the bench and did not play a single minute. Without him, PSG beat Olympique Lyon 4-1. It should be recalled that Mbappé is the top scorer in PSG history with 253 goals in 302 games played.
