Kylian Mbappe (22) was named Ligue 1 Player of the Month in August, but time is running out if PSG are to retain the shooting star.
This season, Mbappe scored four goals and provided three assists in seven matches. The Frenchman was a very important contributor to PSG dominating the top of the table with a full pot.
However, the French striker is causing a headache for Paris Saint-Germain. The contract expires in the summer, and within 100 days Mbappe and his representatives can start negotiations with other clubs.
According to FIFA rules, a player can be contacted and signed for a new club when less than six months remain from the current contract. For Kylian Mbappé, this rule will come into effect on January 1, 2022.
Rejected several offers
The Frenchman must have decided to leave the club once the contract expires, according to as. French media also claimed that Mbappe told his Paris Saint-Germain teammates that he wanted new challenges.
According to L’Équipe, the current world champion has consistently turned down four specific contract offers from PSG.
The same source claims that the 22-year-old has been offered a five-year contract with the option of a one-year extension. The salary should be €25 million per year after tax. This corresponds to just over NOK 250 million at today’s exchange rate.
Mbappe is said to have been offered a contract that spans over many years. PSG is said to have offered the Frenchman a two-year contract with the same salary terms as the previous proposal. This proposal was also rejected.
The 22-year-old earns about 15 million euros a year, which is equivalent to about 150 million kroner.

This summer, Real Madrid intensified their pursuit of Mbappe, finally turning down an offer of just under 2 billion crowns, according to L’Equipe.
Spanish newspaper AS claims that Real Madrid will be ready to sign the French player already in January, if PSG are willing to negotiate. If not, the Spanish club will do all they can to secure the star this summer. AS claims that Real Madrid will offer Mbappe a six-year contract and an insane signing bonus.
Then it remains to be seen how PSG will deal with the situation around Kylian Mbappe. The pressure from both the club and the fans is, of course, great. The Frenchman noticed this, too, after his supporters directed a gala concert towards their star.
