PSG send clear message to Kylian Mbappe as Real Madrid transfer speculation intensifies

Published

on

Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo has sent a clear message to star striker Kylian Mbappe on the club’s stance on his future.

Mbappe has recently hinted at a move to Real Madrid and his most recent interview suggested that he is open to a move away from Paris, where he is out of contract this summer.

Real Madrid lodged a world record bid – which Sky Sports reported to be in excess of €220million – which received no response from the Ligue 1 club in the closing hours of the summer transfer window.

That led to PSG sporting director Leonardo calling for Real Madrid to be punished by the authorities over their pursuit of the player.

Now, the Brazilian has admitted that the club “want him to stay for his whole life” but confessed that they must “respect his position” – hinting that it is a losing battle.

Mbappe will theoretically be available to speak to other clubs from 1 January – while PSG are due to play Madrid in the Round of 16 of the Champions League the following month.

Leonardo told an interview with Le JDD and Europe1, which will be aired on Sunday night: “If Mbappe decides to stay, he will stay because it is our wish.

“It is a complicated situation because we would like him to stay his whole life and we have to respect his position.

“I think there are still good opportunities to renew his contract. I believe in that.”

Salah overtakes Ronaldo as Premier League’s highest-paid player with new deal

Published

on

Mohamed Salah’s new £400,000-per-week salary at Liverpool has made him the top earner in the Premier League, according to Daily Mail.

The Egyptian has ended speculation about his future, by putting pen to paper on a bumper deal until 2025.

Salah is now ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United) and Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City), who are on reported salaries of £385,000-per-week.

City’s new striker, Erling Haaland, is close behind on £375,000-per-week, the same wage as United goalkeeper David de Gea.

Salah, however, ranks as the fourth highest-paid footballer in the world.

The 30-year-old’s wages is dwarfed by those ahead of him, all of whom play for Paris Saint-Germain.

Neymar comes in at third-place with £606,000-per-week.

Lionel Messi took a pay cut when he joined PSG from Barcelona last summer, but he’s still on a stunning salary of £960,000-per-week.

Messi was the biggest earner in the world until a few weeks ago, when he was overtaken by team-mate Kylian Mbappe, who signed a new three-year contract with the Ligue 1 side reported to be worth £1million-per-week.

Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly planning to offload forward Lionel Messi this summer, according to Spanish journalist Pedro Morata via PSG Talk.

Messi joined PSG last summer from his boyhood club, Barcelona.

The Argentine captain failed to live up to expectations, scoring just 11 goals from 34 games across competitions for PSG.

The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner, though, has shown signs of a revival over the summer.

Messi was outstanding for La Albiceleste in the last few games, scoring goals for fun and winning the Finalissima.

However, it appears PSG have run out of patience with Messi.

PSG’s new sporting director Luis Campos is planning a squad revamp and is also ready to axe Messi.

“They have agreed personal terms, and their talks with Tielemans date back for the best part of a year. But for whatever reason, Arsenal have decided not to swoop just yet and actually table a bid with Leicester City.

“And if they do so, and agree a fee at the lowest end £25 million, at the highest end £32 million, they will get Youri Tielemans.”
