While Kylian Mbappe’s next destination is all but official, a report from MARCA has affirmed that in recent days, one of the most powerful clubs recently entered the competition, but the player’s representatives asked them to stay away as he has already committed to Los Blancos.

As reported before, the PSG and France star has already signed his contract with Real Madrid, which will run until 2029, earning him a salary of €15-20 million net plus bonuses.

The player will officially become Real Madrid’s new signing on July 1 but the story could have been very different if that unnamed club had tried to tap-in this transfer.

A transfer that was interrupted

Real Madrid have been negotiating with Mbappe since January when the French World Cup winner became eligible to listen to offers from elsewhere. While they were always thought to be the frontrunners, distractions were aplenty for the record European champions.

It took Madrid a while but a mutual agreement was eventually reached between them, Mbappe and PSG. However, before the story panned out entirely, a top football club considered the idea of extending an offer to Mbappe.

The player’s inner circle, though, conveyed a clear message to them, advising against pursuing the matter further after It appeared that Mbappe had firmly committed himself to joining Real Madrid, making any potential offer from the other club useless.

How much will Mbappe make at Real Madrid?

Upon agreeing to terms with Real Madrid, the 25-year-old will arrive in the Spanish capital as the highest-paid player in the squad, although not too far away from the likes of Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and David Alaba.

As suggested by us before, the contract Mbappe will have is likely to be between €15 and €20 million per year, plus extra money for meeting certain goals. This would be for a five-year contract, which is the usual type of contract Real Madrid gives its players these days. 

Interestingly enough, it is to be noted that back in 2022, there was an agreement between the player and Madrid, and all that was left was for the player to sign the contract. 

Back then, the average salary mentioned in that agreement was around €26 million. In the last two seasons at PSG, after signing the contract, Mbappe has been paid €32 million per year, which is €72 million before taxes.

Real Madrid will be on their way to England this Thursday as they gear up to take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday.

The players and the staff will be on a flight to London tomorrow to prepare for the clash at Wembley.

However, according to a report from journalist Arancha Rodriguez, Real Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin might not travel with the rest of the team tomorrow.

The 25-year-old Ukrainian goalkeeper has not trained for three days in a row after coming down with the flu.

Lunin has overcome the flu, but he still has the virus and there is still a chance he could be contagious.

As such, Real Madrid, aware of the importance of Saturday’s match against Borussia Dortmund, are considering leaving the Ukrainian behind to avoid any possible contagion ahead of the Champions League final.

The goalkeeper will likely not travel with the rest of the expedition to London on Thursday and will fly alone on Saturday to avoid the risk of infection.

On Thursday, Lunin will undergo another check-up and, depending on the viral load, he could even travel on Friday. But it seems impossible for him to travel with his teammates.

It has already been suggested that Lunin would be making way for Thibaut Courtois in the starting lineup against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. The likelihood of that has increased following the events of this week.
