Here Is How Much Mbappe Earns At PSG

Paris Saint-Germain are committed to paying Kylian Mbappe £546million after pulling out all the stops to keep him from joining Real Madrid in the summer.

PSG announced in May that Mbappe had signed a three-year contract extension with the club, which would keep him in Paris until June 2025. It later emerged that Mbappe had in fact put pen to a two-year contract until June 2024, with the third year optional and up to him, not the club.

Mbappe initially looked set to join Real Madrid when his contract expired at the end of June, but PSG lobbied hard to keep him. That commitment was thrown into doubt earlier this month amid explosive reports that the 23-year-old striker regrets signing the contract and again wants to push for an exit.

If Mbappe does agitate for a move then the financial implications for PSG could be huge, following revelations about his contract from Le Parisien. According to the French newspaper, the French giants have committed to paying Mbappe a whopping €630m (£546m) over the next few years.

It is a figure which they claim makes it the biggest contract in football history, ahead of the €555m Barcelona paid Mbappe’s now teammate Lionel Messi between 2017 and 2021. And it is way bigger than the €267m Neymar will earn over six years from 2017 to 2023 at the club.

Mbappe is now responsible for a quarter of the club’s entire budget and he holds all the cards. His basic wage is reported to be €6m (£5.21m) per month, which is reduced to a more modest €2.7m (£2.34m) after tax, but does represent a tripling of his previous agreement.

There are no performance-related bonuses, such as for helping PSG win the Champions League. But his much-reported signing-on bonus of €180m (£156m) is payable over three instalments due every July – and he will receive all of it, even if he leaves early.

Finally, there is also a loyalty bonus of €70m (£60m) due at the end of every season and it will increase by €10m (£8.68m) for every season he remains at the club.
