PSG Agree Mammoth €180 Million Deal With Monaco For Kylian Mbappe

PSG Agree Mammoth €180 Million Deal With Monaco For Kylian Mbappe”

The 18-year-old, who only made his first-team breakthrough last season, has been the subject of constant transfer speculation in the off season after a scintillating first season in professional football.

Mbappe is a man in demand this summer and while Manchester City and Real Madrid have kept in the hunt, along with Liverpool through manager Jurgen Klopp staying in contact with the striker's agents, it is PSG putting in a big tilt to sign the striker.

The news comes barely a week after Neymar was unveiled at the Parc des Princes in a world-record £198m move, with Mbappe excited about the prospect of playing with the Brazilian.

Quite how PSG are funding the deal without breaching Financial Fair Play rules is another matter entirely, and the deal will likely see UEFA scrutinise the club's summer business to ensure FFP is not being exploited. The players was convinced after a meeting with PSG boss Unai Emery that he would get good game time this season and will be in his plans. But in order for a deal to be completed, Mbappe would need to reach an agreement with PSG and that has not happened yet despite conflicting reports that said otherwise.

Reports in Spain say Mbappe will receive a salary of £10.8m-a-year after tax (over £200,000-a-week).

For their part, Monaco are furious over the potential sale of Mbappe to PSG, and are looking at alternatives, including AC Milan player Carlos Bacca, suggesting Diego Costa could indeed be on his way to the Serie A side, who have been no slouches themselves in the transfer window this summer. Bernardo Silva and Benjamin Mendy have joined Manchester City for a combined total of close to £100m, while Tiemoue Bakayoko has linked up with Premier League champions Chelsea.
