Kylian Mbappe will ‘receive a huge SALARY CUT before joining Real Madrid’ – as outgoing superstar confirms he’s leaving PSG in farewell video… but what are the two key figures the French captain has did he fail to mention?

Kylian Mbappe is reportedly set to take a pay cut before joining Real Madrid, after confirming on Friday evening that he will leave Paris Saint-Germain after seven years this summer.

The French captain has long been linked with a move from Parc des Princes to the Bernabeu and last summer refused to sign a new one-year contract to allow him to join La Liga as a free agent.

Mbappe has since remained tight-lipped about his future destination, refusing to comment on his next move until the end of the campaign.

The striker will play his last match in PSG colors on Saturday at home against Toulouse, before the last match of the season next Wednesday against Nice.

But with his departure from the French capital, Mbappe will see his situation change dramatically as he turns his back on his current blockbuster contract with the Ligue 1 champions.

According to reports, Mbappé’s salary is expected to be significantly reduced to bring him in line with Real Madrid’s highest-paid employees, although his proposed salary is expected to eclipse that of even the most experienced members of the squad.

The 25-year-old previously signed a two-year deal with the Paris giants which saw him pay a staggering £5.1million (€6million) per week, with a gross annual salary before tax estimated at 62 million pounds sterling (6 million euros). 72m).

But the Spanish outlet claims Mbappe’s new contract will be almost two-thirds less than the mammoth sum commanded at his former club – around £21m (€25m) a year after tax.

Despite this seismic drop between PSG and Real Madrid salaries, Mbappe will still be able to claim to be the highest earner at his new club.

His salary will be almost double that of the two highest-ranking figures in the team currently: David Alaba, who earns £9.3 million (€10.8 million), and Toni Kroos, on a salary of 9.2 million pounds sterling (10.7 million euros) per year.

Superstar signing last summer Jude Bellingham is also believed to command a similar amount.

To announce his departure on Friday, Mbappe posted a heartfelt message in which he personally thanked the club, his teammates, his supporters and each of the managers he played under during his time in Paris.

“It’s hard, and I never thought it would be this difficult to announce that I will leave my country,” Mbappé said in the video. “France, Ligue 1, a championship that I have always known.

“But I think I needed this, a new challenge after seven years. It’s difficult and of course there are some people I want to thank above all. It’s the fans.

“I know I’m not the most demonstrative player. I haven’t always lived up to you for seven years. I always wanted to be efficient.

“PSG is a club that never leaves anyone indifferent. We can love it or hate it. I made the choice to love it and I did it for seven years, with ups and downs of course. But I do not regret at any time having signed with this prestigious club.

“It’s a club that I will remember all my life. I will tell everyone all my life that I was lucky to play.”

But two notable omissions during Mbappe’s surprise confirmation statement speak volumes about the player’s dealings during his final seasons in Paris.

Mbappe chose not to name either club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi or former sporting director Antero Henrique.

According to L’Equipe, Mbappé has not spoken to Al-Khelaïfi since February and relations are deeply strained.

The player is not believed to have made it known to Al-Khelaifi that he planned to issue a farewell statement – although several key figures at the club knew, including sporting director Luis Campos.

According to rumors, things are so frosty between Mbappé and the Qatari executive that the two men have avoided each other in recent weeks so as not to have to say hello.

Fans will be able to say goodbye to Mbappe in person on Saturday evening, with a tifo honoring the club’s success in Ligue 1 this season, and a lap of honor planned for Mbappe to say thank you in return.
