Mbappe takes €10m pay cut to join Madrid

According to The Daily Mail, Kylian Mbappe, the Paris Saint-Germain striker, is set to experience a notable reduction in salary upon his departure from the club this summer.

His earnings at Real Madrid will amount to €15 million net (£12.8m), a decrease from the €25 million net (£21.4m) he currently earns at PSG.

“Kylian Mbappe has agreed to take a massive pay cut to join Real Madrid this summer,” the paper reports.

“The 25-year-old, who earns 25m euros net (£21.4m) in Paris, will clear 15m euros net (£12.8m) a season at Madrid, still making him the club’s top earner despite the huge salary cut.

“Mbappe has agreed terms with the Spanish club although neither Paris Saint-Germain nor Madrid will make any formal statement while both could still meet in the Champions League.

“Despite losing out in terms of basic wage Mbappe will be paid a sizeable signing-on fee understood to be over 100m euros (£85.6m) and will keep an 80 per cent share of image rights on any new commercial deals he signs after becoming a Madrid player. This breaks from the normal 50-50 split the club usually imposes on new players.”

Mbappe is expected to wear Luka Modic’s number 10 shirt next season with the Croatian 38-year-old not being offered a new deal.
