According to a report by L’Equipe, Kylian Mbappe has not received his salaries and various bonuses from Paris Saint-Germain since April. 

As a result of this event, he has formally notified the club to settle the outstanding amount, which totals nearly €100 million.

The outlet claims that Mbappe’s legal representatives have taken this claim to the French Professional Football League (LFP), which stipulates that salaries must be paid by the last day of each month. 

The media had previously highlighted that PSG had not paid the salaries for April and May to their star player. This happened amidst Mbappe’s announcement to join Real Madrid despite having a contract with PSG until June 30.

The situation has escalated further with indications that the club, owned by Qatar, appears reluctant to pay Mbappe his June salary as well.

Additionally, Mbappe is yet to receive certain bonuses that were due to him for the recently concluded season. This development marks another contentious chapter in the strained relationship between the French striker and PSG’s president, Nasser Al Khelaifi.

It must be noted that previously, Mbappe had been sidelined from preseason activities almost a year ago but was eventually reintegrated into the first team after reaching a verbal agreement with the president. 

This agreement was conditional on Mbappe waiving some bonuses if he chose not to leave the club via a transfer. 

However, there was no formal documentation of this agreement which emphasises that Mbappe is resolute in ensuring he receives what he believes is rightfully his.

Meanwhile, Mbappe, who has already been announced as Real Madrid’s latest signing, spent the last seven seasons with PSG and during his tenure with the French club, he amassed impressive statistics: 308 games played, 256 goals scored, and 108 assists provided.

Recently, he did not participate in the Netherlands-France match due to precautionary reasons following a nose injury sustained in a previous game against Austria. 

Despite wearing a protective mask, the national team coach, Didier Deschamps, opted not to risk Mbappe’s health.

Real Madrid are in active negotiations with LOSC Lille for the transfer of Leny Yoro. After weeks of impasse, the club appear to have made some ground in the race to sign the Frenchman.

However, should the Yoro deal fall through in the coming weeks, Real Madrid have identified Lazio’s Mario Gila as the ideal alternative.

Formerly of RM Castilla, Gila currently plies his trade for Lazio and has emerged as a key defensive lynchpin for the Italian outfit, impressing onlookers with his technique and discipline.

However, in a major development, it appears Mario Gila has picked up a fresh injury during training, reports Diario AS.

In the pre-season camp at Auronzo di Cadore, Gila appears to have fractured his left foot and could be out for several weeks.

Lazio confirmed the defender’s injury, stating, “Mario Gila underwent clinical and instrumental examinations which revealed a fracture of the phalanx of the big toe of his left foot, suffered during training.”

Gila has started taking the appropriate treatment and the extent of his injury will be known soon. However, as things stand, the defender could be out for at least the next few weeks.

What does this mean for Real Madrid?

Mario Gila’s fresh injury setback is sure to dwindle any hopes of a potential return to Real Madrid this summer.

In any case, Gila’s chances of returning to Santiago Bernabeu were slim given that Real Madrid have finally made some ground in the deal to sign top defensive target Leny Yoro.

Los Blancos, though, would have liked having someone like Gila available as an alternative, especially with LOSC Lille still demanding a fortune for the Frenchman.

Unfortunately, that might not be an option anymore, no thanks to Gila’s injury. The club, though, will keep a close eye on the Spaniard’s injury situation, knowing he could return to fitness before the end of the summer break.
