Paris Saint-Germain will reportedly offer Kylian Mbappe a substantial pay raise to prevent Real Madrid from signing their star forward next summer
The Parisians have reportedly prepared an improved £41million-a-year contract for the 21-year-old Frenchman to keep hold of him for years to come and fend off potential suitors.
Los Blancos have been following Mbappe for quite some time and have been tipped to make an effort to lure him away from Paris in the summer of 2021 when he would enter the final year of his deal at the Parc des Princes.
Florentino Perez is a known admirer of the pacey forward and is keen to see him spearhead Real Madrid’s attack in the future.
According to @diarioas' source in Paris, PSG is preparing to present Mbappé with an almighty offer ahead of Euro 2020 this summer, which would see his salary rise to the level of Ronaldo and Messi (around €50m after tax per season).

But, according to the Daily Mail, PSG’s desire to retain the World Cup winner has seen them decide to make the former Monaco star the highest-paid player at the club.
Mbappe currently earns £375,000-a-week, which is much less than his partner in crime, Neymar, whose weekly salary sees him get £600,000.
The reigning Ligue 1 holders are now looking to put the France international on a pair with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, with a new upgraded deal.
In addition to the Santiago Bernabeu outfit, Liverpool are also interested in Mbappe, which makes PSG’s job of keeping their star in the French capital even more challenging.
