To the gratitude of all Real Madrid fans around the world, the Kylian Mbappe saga may finally be coming to an end this summer. The Frenchman has reportedly decided that he wants to leave PSG, and is heading towards the Spanish capital.

Madrid have been pursuing his signature for nearly half-a-decade at this point. They were even close to signing him on a free transfer before he decided to extend his contract with PSG in 2022.

History could still repeat itself, though. Mbappe’s contract with PSG clocks up this summer, and the French capital outfit are definitely trying to get him to stay, with the €80 million loyalty bonus up in the air.

And while Madrid are ready to make him the highest-paid player in the squad and Europe, the Mabppe will definitely not be getting the same as his bizarre €73 million wages in the Spanish capital.

Instead, according to AS, Mbappe is seeking a €50 million salary at his new club — more than likely Madrid, and with it, a €120 million signing bonus. The World Cup winner also wants to retain a part of his image rights.

Since he will be arriving on a free transfer, Mbappe probably believes he is entitled to the €120 million signing bonus for choosing Madrid over other clubs, including PSG. Part of it could also be the loyalty bonus he will never get now.

And while the salary is still sky-high, it come with an over 30% discount. It will make him the highest-earner in the Madrid squad by more than 50%. Toni Kroos currently bags the most in that squad, with his reported numbers at just under €25 million.

Real Madrid confident that star midfielder will renew contract for another season – Romano

Real Madrid have a lot of work cut out for them before the 2024 summer transfer window even kicks off, with several important players in the squad running out of a contract come the end of the season.

Luka Modric is among them, with his future still undecided. The Croatian’s game-time has reduced drastically this season, and it seems he will only extend his deal if he gets more minutes on the pitch.

Lucas Vazquez and Nacho, meanwhile, are considered important rotational pieces in the squad, and will likely be handed a one-year offer. The final decision will be up to them, though, and Madrid will not push them to renew.

The more important concern for Madrid, though, is Toni Kroos’ contract. The German has been a vital player for them this season, and they want to renew him for at least another season.

However, the player has always been vocal about his desire to not stretch his playing career for too long.

After a lot of back-and-forth, though, Fabrizio Romano reports that Madrid are confident that Kroos will end up staying for another season. They have already tabled him the new contract, and the feeling within the club is that he will eventually put pen to paper.

This comes on the back of Kroos’ decision to return to the German National Team for the 2024 European Championship at Julian Nagelsmann’s request.

The player is enjoying a wonderful season at Madrid, and has been their best midfielder for at least a couple of years running now. He is a difference-maker for the Spanish capital outfit, and could extend his time as a footballer for another year.

Madrid will likely plan their next season with Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga, and Federico Valverde at the helm of the midfield, while Kroos serves as their mentor and the first deputy when time calls.
