Kylian Mbappe is set to earn an enormous salary at Real Madrid next season if he joins them in the summer.
Mbappe is in the final few months of his contract with Paris Saint-Germain and has refused to put pen to paper on a new deal so far. He was free to speak with foreign clubs during the recently concluded January transfer window and agree a pre-contract with interested clubs.
According to BILD, the 23-year-old has agreed to join Madrid on a free transfer at the end of the current campaign.
The report goes on to claim that Mbappe is set to be offered a deal worth €50m per year before tax - a deal that will make him the highest-paid footballer in the world. The Frenchman would earn €137,000 each day, or around €1.58 every single second.
The Los Blancos tried hard to sign Mbappe last summer, even making a €200m bid for the forward, but PSG refused to sell him, and Madrid eventually walked away from their final bid after receiving no response from Mauricio Pochettino's side.
Madrid president Florentino Perez complained about PSG's attitude, saying: "The state-owned clubs don’t sell their players. It’s a madness.
“Now we offer €200m for a single player and they don't sell him. When players finish their contract it's better.”
Now, PSG are set to lose their talented star for free. Mbappe previously admitted he hoped PSG would sell him so that they could receive a transfer fee rather than lose him for free.
He told RMC Sport last year: "I asked to leave, because from the moment where I did not want to extend, I wanted for the club to receive a transfer fee so that they could bring in a quality replacement.
“This club has given me a lot, I have always been happy [during] the four years I have had here, and I still am. I said it early enough so that the club could react.
"I wanted everyone to come out of this stronger, that we leave hand in hand, to make a good deal and I respected that. I said, ‘If you don’t want me to go I will stay’.”
