PSG have reportedly withheld payments to Kylian Mbappe to the tune of €80million (£70m) in the wake of his free transfer to Real Madrid

PSG ‘REFUSE to pay Kylian Mbappe £70m he’s owed in salary and bonuses’

The French superstar was confirmed as the European champions’ newest ‘Galactico’ on Monday, ending a transfer saga that rumbled on for years. He joins the side on a five-year deal.

Mbappe looked to set to move to the Bernabeu in 2022 before he sensationally made a late U-turn and penned a new deal with the French giants until 2024, with the option of an extra year to 2025 that only he could activate.

Last summer, however, he made it clear he would not be triggering a one-year extension, before announcing that he would be leaving at the end of the season on a free.

Reports abounded of the fury his decision sparked at the Parisian club and especially in president, Nasser al-Khelaifi. According to L’Equipe, the loss of their star player for nothing has prompted the withholding of large payments in order for the PSG boss not to ‘lose face in this matter’.

The outlet report that PSG refused to pay the 25-year-old his salary in April and May as well as his bonus in February. This has allowed the side to recover around £70m – the amount promised to the France captain as a loyalty bonus when he signed his 2022 extension.

In November, French outlet RMC Sport reported that Mbappe – who was exiled from PSG’s squad last summer after he informed the club he would not be utilising his extension – was only allowed to return if he agreed to forego bonuses that he was owed.
