The change is not yet official. But it seems almost decided that France's football superstar Kylian Mbappé will hunt for goals for Real Madrid in the future. There he should be able to count on a princely salary. But that's not all: according to media reports, he can also expect a signing bonus of 150 million euros.

The BBC broadcaster and the newspaper “The Times” reported this unanimously on Tuesday. The so-called “signing-on fee” is to be paid out over five years depending on the contract term.

According to a report in the Spanish sports newspaper Marca, France's former world champion has already signed a contract with Real. The 25-year-old is said to have told Paris Saint-Germain President Nasser Al-Khelaifi his decision in a conversation a week ago.

There has been speculation about the move to the Royals for months. His contract in Paris expires in the summer. As early as 2022, Mbappé was about to move to Real, his favorite club from his youth. At that time he extended his contract again. The year before, he also publicly toyed with the idea of ​​a change.

PSG President: “Best player in the world”

PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi recently refused to comment on the impending departure of his star striker. "When we have both decided, we will tell you," said the PSG boss on the sidelines of the UEFA congress in the French capital. But Al-Khelaifi had not yet given up hope of staying: “Of course I want Kylian to stay. For me he is the best player in the world and for me Paris is the best club for Kylian.

With PSG, Mbappé has won the French championship five times and the cup three times, but he is still missing a triumph in the Champions League. The striker moved from Monaco to Paris in 2017. The transfer fee for the 2018 world champion is said to have been around 180 million euros.
