Real to smash transfer record with Mbappe signing
principle for the player.
Real have broken the record on six occasions previously.
United hold the current record after they brought Paul Pogba from Juventus for £89m last season, but Real’s capture of Mbappe would shatter that.
The record will not last until the start of the new season if Paris Saint-Germain manage to sign Neymar from Barcelona for £200m, but whatever happens between now and the closing of the transfer window, Mbappe looks set to become the highest-paid teenager in history.
Real say Mbappe will sign for six seasons, earning £6.2m. That translates to £241 000 a week for an 18-year-old.
Real want to pay a flat fee of £143m rising to £160m over the six-year deal, depending on the player’s progress. — Daily Mail
