Kylian Mbappé finally joins Real Madrid

Alongside talents such as Vinícius Jr. and Karim Benzema, Mbappé will form a formidable forward line that promises to rattle opposing defences. Fans, euphoric at the news, are eager to see how the coach will integrate this golden nugget into his system. Mbappé's impact on the pitch, as well as his influence off of it, could well mark the start of a new era for Real Madrid.

But how much will Kylian Mbappé earn at Real Madrid? While at PSG, the footballer had a gross salary of £60 million a year and a signing bonus of £126 million. However, his transfer to a club doesn't necessarily mean he'll get a raise. Indeed, the striker's salary is set to drop 'drastically'. Florentino Perez, the current president of Real Madrid, is not known for overpaying his club's players.

His new salary is half what it used to be

Spain's two leading sports newspapers have already addressed the issue. Spanish publication Marca has estimated that the striker will receive an annual net salary of between £12 and £16 million for five years in Madrid, with a signing bonus of around £84 million, spread over five years in Real Madrid's accounts.

Madrid's other leading sports daily DiarioAS has forecast a net annual salary of £12 million, plus 80% of his image rights, which he already owned at PSG and which, according to Forbes, would represent around £16 million a year. According to these Spanish publications, Kylian Mbappé's salary would therefore be divided by around two or three.
