Striker Kylian Mbappe will be paid a full €60 million bonus by Paris Saint-Germain tomorrow (Tuesday).
The 24-year-old has been the subject of a major transfer saga this summer, with PSG said to be confident he has already agreed a deal to join Real Madrid in 2024.
Such a move would see Mbappe move to the Bernabeu as a free agent, as his current contract with PSG expires in 12 months.
As a result, PSG are keen to sell the striker, with Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol claiming the French giants are willing to listen to ‘any offer’, including loan deals, for their player.
On Saturday, the Daily Mirror reported that Liverpool were in talks over a temporary move for the Frenchman and were ready to include a loan fee in a deal that would see Mbappe join for the 2023/24 season.
He has already turned down the chance to negotiate with Saudi side Al Hilal after the club had a world record bid of €300 million accepted by PSG.
Now, he could be in for a major payday from his current club.
According to Kaveh Solhekol, Mbappe will receive a loyalty bonus included in his contract with PSG worth €60 million.
The bonus is said to be paid before the 2023/24 season in two separate installments.
However, the caveat is that Mbappe should be a PSG player come the end of Monday and as the hours tick by, that looks increasingly likely.
Media outlet Relevo report that the second of those payments is due on August 31, meaning PSG could save that fee if they can sell the French forward before that date.
That leaves interested clubs a month to battle to sign Mbappe, with the reigning Ligue 1 champions eager to land him.
