Kylian Mbappe rejects blank cheque offer from club

PSG, in a concerted effort to pull all the stops to convince Mbappe to stay in Paris beyond this summer, have allegedly made him a blank cheque offer after the French World Cup winner’s impressive goal in stoppage time during the first leg of Paris Saint-Germain’s UEFA Champions League last-16 clash against Real Madrid.

In the aftermath of the victory over the Los Merengues at the Parc des Princes, the French giants are definitely even more convinced than ever that their lynchpin Kylian Mbappe has to stay in the Parisian club at all costs. However, a report has emerged that the striker has turned down a “name your price” offer from his PSG employers, with no reasons disclosed.

Mbappe’s current contract is due to expire at the end of the season, and the popular belief is that he is determined to finally don the famous Real Madrid color except that a deal has yet to be finalised between the player and the Spanish giants. As such, PSG are still hopeful, even desperate, to find a way to keep their man at the Parc des Princes for as long as they can.

According to Marca, PSG have just suffered the latest drawback in their plans to retain the French striker, with Mbappe supposedly having rejected their latest blank-cheque renewal offer. Earlier in the week reports had surfaced alleging that the Parisians have put forward a new deal that will supposedly make Mbappe the highest-paid footballer on the planet, but that apparently has been turned down.

News has it that the club has decided that the sky’s the limit when it comes to their forward that’s now been touted as the best player in the new era and the club had a meeting with Mbappe’s camp last week, with the improved deal placed squarely on the table.

Apparently, PSG’s deep-pocketed Qatari owners are extremely eager to keep Mbappe at the club until the FIFA World Cup in Qatar at the end of the year. This would also mean that PSG would be entitled to a transfer fee if his extension runs until 2024.
