Mbappe reinstated as PSG first team player

Kylian Mbappe’s future is back in the spotlight after the Liverpool transfer target entered the final six months of his lucrative contract with Paris Saint-Germain.

Mbappe has already agreed to forgo a loyalty bonus worth £69 million in order to secure a more amicable exit from Paris Saint-Germain this summer as Liverpool prepare to make their move.

Twenty-five-year-old Mbappe has just entered the final six months of his lucrative PSG contract, which was only signed in 2022 after Parc des Princes chiefs managed to fend off strong interest from Real Madrid.

At the beginning of this campaign, however, the Ligue 1 champions were left furious with Mbappe and axed him from their pre-season tour of Asia after the French superstar wrote to the club informing them that he wouldn’t be agreeing to sign off on a one-year extension, as PSG had previously expected him to do.

Despite the dispute, Mbappe was still rewarded with an 80 million euro loyalty bonus after he remained with the club beyond the closure of the summer transfer window and was reintegrated into new manager Luis Enrique’s squad. Mbappe, though, waived the first installment of that bonus and would be willing to forgo it completely should he leave Paris this summer.

Amid the complex financial developments reported by Caught Offside, the France captain can now sign a pre-contract agreement with a new club, and Liverpool hope to take advantage of his uncertain future.

Spanish giants Real Madrid were long considered to be the most interested party, but multiple reports over the winter have suggested that Jurgen Klopp’s Reds are now the frontrunners after holding previous discussions over a transfer.

“I talked to Liverpool because it’s the favourite club of my mum,” Mbappe told the Telegraph in 2022. “I don’t know why; you will have to ask her! It’s a good club, and we met them five years ago. When I was in Monaco, I met them. It’s a big club.”

He hasn’t ruled out staying in the French capital, though, with the former Monaco starlet declaring after PSG beat Toulouse 2-0 in the French Super Cup on Wednesday: “I’m very, very, very motivated for this year. It’s very important.
