Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly preparing to offer Kylian Mbappe a bumper new contract which will see him pocket a cool £25m annual salary as they look to keep him at the club.

The 22-year-old has just one year left on his current deal at the club, and negotiations have been ongoing to convince him to stay in France. A number of top clubs, including Real Madrid and Liverpool, are interested in signing the World Cup winner, who has made a name for himself as one of the leading forwards in the world.

According to L'Equipe, Mauricio Pochettino's side are willing to offer Mbappe a financial incentive of £25m-per-year to ward off potential suitors and convince the player to stay on the Parc des Princes.

Speaking earlier this year, Mbappe insisted that he would not rush into a decision and would take his time before committing his future to any club. He told Telefoot: "We are talking with the club. 'I said that I am reflecting on it too, because I think it is a signature, that if I sign, I am investing myself for the long term into PSG."

He added, "And I am very happy here. I have always been very happy here. The fans and the club have always helped me. And I will always be very thankful to the club. I want to think about what I want to do in the coming years, where I want to be, and that is now I will be reflecting on it. I think that yes, I will have to soon make a decision. But for now I am in deep thought. If I had the answer today, I would have given it today. This is not a desire to take up time, it is just to really think about it."

Revealing his intentions for the delay, Mbappe concluded, "I don't want to sign a contract and then one year later say I want to leave because I did not want to sign the contract. If I sign, it is to stay. That is why it requires thought."
