Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly willing to offer star attacker Kylian Mbappe a mammoth contract to keep him from joining Real Madrid. According to multiple reports, PSG is preparing to offer Kylian Mbappe a mouth-watering salary of around €50 million a year after tax. This should see his salary rise to the level of the likes of superstars Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Roughly around £42m so that would be roughly around 800k a week
That is bloody insane, that's around what a lot of us will earn in our life time
AS suggests that PSG do not want to let Kylian Mbappe leave before the 2022 Qatar World Cup. They will offer him a huge contract before he heads out for Euro 2020.
Recently, French outlet L'Equipe leaked the salaries of players in Ligue 1. According to the list, Mbappe is the second-highest earner in the French top flight with €15 million per season. However, it is starkly below his PSG teammate Neymar, who reportedly makes around €35 million per season.
Kylian Mbappe's current deal reportedly ends in 2022. However, after his recent bust-up with manager Thomas Tuchel, it is believed that the 21-year-old is looking for a way out of the club. Reports in Spain suggest that Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is a big fan of Kylian Mbappe. Real chairman Florentino Perez has also earmarked Mbappe as his next Galactico signing.

AS also reported that Real Madrid are plotting a similar strategy that they used to sign Eden Hazard. Real will look to sign Mbappe in the summer of 2021. At that time, Mbappe will have just a year left in his PSG contract, allowing Real to sign the Frenchman for a lower price.
Kylian Mbappe will line-up with PSG on Saturday to take on Amiens in Ligue 1.
