After Kylian Mbappé’s announcement that he would not be renewing his contract with Paris Saint-Germain, reports have been swirling about his current finalization stages of moving to Real Madrid, with the transfer set to become official from July 1.

Critical aspects such as image rights and signing bonuses are yet to be finalized, with Mbappe’s base salary expected to be comparable to that of other Spanish talents like Vinicius Jr and Jude Bellingham.
