PSG ‘unable to offer Kylian Mbappe new lucrative contract with same wages as Neymar’
The Ligue 1 giants were set to give Mbappe a deal that he simply could not refuse – one that would see him move in line with Neymar by earning £35million per season, according to Le Parisien.
However offering a similar deal is now not possible due to the bonuses Neymar has in his contract, according to French outlet L’Equipe, as reported by Marca.

Real boss Zidane said he was aware it is the World Cup winner’s ‘dream’ to play for the club earlier this week.
Mbappe, whose current contract at the club runs until the summer of 2022, featured in PSG’s 1-0 victory over Club Brugge in the Champions League on Wednesday night and after the match PSG’s chief responded to Zidane’s remarks.

‘Honestly, it’s a bit irritating, it’s annoying, it’s not the first time this has happened,’ Leonardo said.
‘I think that now is not the time to talk about this.
‘He is a player who has two-and-a-half years left on his contract with us, so to talk about what he wants, his “dream”, every time… if we can just stop this, pause this talk.
‘Kylian is a very important player for us. Now is not the time to destabilise him.’
