Kylian Mbappe will move to Real Madrid

This move has been in the post for some time. Mbappe signed a recent extension with PSG to make him one of the world’s richest and most powerful players, but there were always suspicions that his heart was set on Real Madrid in the long term. According to today’s reports, Mbappe will move to the Spanish capital on a five-year deal worth €15m a year. Over and above that €75m salary figure throughout the contract, the 25-year-old will also land a signing-on bonus of €150m. All in all, Madrid will shell out €225m to get their man. His estimated actual transfer value, however, is €180m. That’s 81 times the value of new Sundowns stars Matias Esquivel and Teboho Mokoena.
