Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) striker Kylian Mbappe will join Real Madrid. It seems that a contract agreement has already been reached.

“Mbappe has agreed to a contract with Real. The agreement between Real and Mbappe includes the possession of 90 percent of portrait rights. It is difficult to say that it is a special case because there are already players in Real who take more than 50 percent of portrait rights.”

Mbappe started the match against Montpellier in round 26 of the 2023-2024 season French Ligue 1 at 4:45 a.m. on Saturday, and scored three goals and one assist as a full-time starter. PSG led by Mbappe’s performance won the game 6-2.

Mbappe, wearing the captain’s armband, assisted Vitinha’s score in the 14th minute of the first half and scored an attack point. He passed to Vitinha, who is located at the center, from the left side. Vitinha beat one defender and attempted to curl with his right foot. Vitinha’s shot stabbed Montpellier in the corner of the goal.

In the 22nd minute of the first half, he played the troubleshooter himself. PSG stole Montpellier’s ball and launched a quick counterattack. Mbappe grabbed the ball from the center and connected it to Randal Kolo Muani, who attempted an overlap. Mbappe, who took over the pass from Kolo Muani again, swung the net with a left-footed shot from a one-on-one chance with the goalkeeper.

He regained his lead in the fifth minute of the second half, when the score was 2-2. Vitinha passed the ball to Bradley Barcola from the left flank. Barcola passed to Mbappe, who once again shook Montpellier’s net with a fantastic curl from a position called the Son Heung-min zone.

Mbappe finally scored a hat trick in the 18th minute of the second half, when Lee Kang-in was leading 4-2. Again, he collaborated with Vitinha to score. Vitinha quickly developed a free kick he got in the midfield. He passed through Mbappe, and Mbappe scored with a near post this time. In fact, he sealed the match.

PSG scored another goal in the 44th minute of the second half, and secured a landslide 6-2 victory. With the victory, PSG secured 59 points to maintain its position at the top of the league table. It beat second-ranked Brest by 12 points. Mbappe scored his 22nd, 23rd, and 24th goals in one game, widening the gap with second-ranked Jonathan David (15 goals).

Mbappe is most likely to join Real after the end of this season. Mbappe, who has 24 goals and five assists in the Ligue 1 alone this season, will end his contract with PSG in June. He agreed to a two-plus-one-year contract in the summer of 2022, but Mbappe refused to invoke the extension option. PSG is on the verge of giving away superstar Mbappe as a free agent.

PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi had a meal with French President Emmanuel Macron to persuade Mbappe, but failed to change Mbappe’s mind. Mbappe said at the meal that his transfer to Real has not been confirmed, but he seems to have already decided to move to Real after the season ends.

Already, Spanish media have reported that the contract has been agreed. Alvarez even disclosed specific terms of the contract. “Mbappe will maintain 100 percent of his portrait rights in commercial terms, but Real will have 10 percent if there is another sponsor in the transfer,” he said.

Alvarez continued, “Instead, Mbappe’s signing bonus is a more favorable amount for Real. We’ve heard about the amount from several sources, but we won’t mention the exact amount,” adding, “It’s a amount that fans will definitely like. Mbappe will earn 13.5 million euros (W19.5 billion) in salary, excluding the Saini bonus and portrait rights, and is on par with Jude Bellingham and Vinicius Junior.” 토토
