Kylian Mbappe’s rumoured free transfer to Real Madrid this summer could end up being the most expensive signing in their history if a baffling request from his mum is met
Kylian Mbappe’s proposed free transfer to Real Madrid could end up being the most expensive transfer in the history of the club should a baffling demand be met.
It has been reported that Mbappe’s mum Fayza Lamari has demanded that the club pay an extraordinary £125million signing on fee for the forward to agree to leave France for Spain this summer.
The France striker has snubbed talks over a new contract with PSG despite the best efforts of the club – and although a deal appeared close there might now be some more deliberations to be done following the shock request.
Spanish outlet El Chiringuito were told by Okdiario’s Eduardo Inda that Mbappe will be a Real Madrid player, but that a €150m bonus offered by PSG needs to be matched.
It was reported earlier this year that Los Blancos have secured an agreement with Mbappe for wages in the region of £41.5m per year.
That would be a huge rise on his current pay packet of £22million-per-season in France – and see him earn an astonishing £800,000-per-week.

Mbappe has scored an impressive 26 goals in all competitions so far this season, but PSG’s Coupe de France and Champions League exits have made for plenty of disappointment.
Back in October, Lamari told RMC Sport that talks were progressing well with PSG over a new deal for her son – before they fell through.
She said at the time: “We are in talks with PSG right now and it’s going well. I even spoke to Leonardo last night [Monday]. But will we reach an outcome?
“One thing is sure: he will give his all right up until the end to win the Champions League.
“Kylian needs to feel satisfied. If he’s unhappy, he is capable of telling you: ‘I’m finishing my career’.
“And he says that to us often, actually [smiles]. With Kylian, it can all change from one day to the next.”
