Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappé has re-signed with the club. It is reportedly a three-year deal, according to noted soccer reporter Fabrizio Romano.
The new contract will run through the 2024-25 season. Romano said that the deal will be approved in the morning.
For some time, it looked like Mbappé was going to walk in free agency. He snubbed Real Madrid to remain with PSG and continue to play in his birthplace.
Last summer, PSG refused to sign Mbappé to a contract extension. Then, towards the end of this season, he was eligible to leave via a free transfer.
Instead of leaving, he has a change of heart to remain with the club. He has been playing with PSG since the 2017-18 season.
In his first season with the club, he was on loan. Then, before the 2018-19 season, PSG triggered a permanent transfer with Monaco to allow him to remain with the team.
This past season in the final year of his contract, the 23-year-old made $22 million. His new deal — which will kick in next season— will undoubtedly have a pay increase.
Right now, PSG will remain to have three superstars on their club. Besides Mbappé, the club also has Lionel Messi and Neymar on its roster.
This season, Mbappé has appeared in 34 matches with 33 starts. He scored 25 goals.
In addition, he appeared in eight Champions League games. He had six goals in those games.© 2007-2023 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcasted, rewritten, or redistributed.
