Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) superstar Kylian Mbappe is reportedly inching closer to joining Real Madrid as a free agent in the summer of 2024. However, the 25-year-old has yet to sign over the dotted line, as the two parties have not yet hashed out the monetary side of the highly anticipated deal.
PSG ace Mbappe will become a free agent after his contract with the club expires on June 30, meaning prospective suitors will not have to go through the hassle of negotiating with the Parisians and paying a ludicrous fee.

Second, Mbappe wants a mammoth €125 million ($134.5 million) as a signing bonus, which he will share with his mother/agent Fayza Lamari. Madrid can see it as a discounted fee for the 25-year-old.
Third, the 2022 FIFA World Cup Golden Boot winner wants to retain a portion of his image rights. Usually, Los Merengues take complete control of the image rights of the players they sign. However, a recent report claimed they were prepared to settle for only 40% in Mbappe’s case.
Although the demands are undoubtedly astronomical, Madrid are unlikely to let them prevent them from signing one of their long-time targets.
