Kylian Mbappe ‘wants BANNED clause inserted in new PSG contract’ to allow Real Madrid transfer

KYLIAN MBAPPE wants to insert a BANNED clause into any new Paris Saint-Germain contract to allow a transfer to Real Madrid, according to reports.

The French forward, 22, has one year left to run on his current deal at the Parc des Princes.

He continues to be linked with a move away with Real Madrid and Liverpool both keen.

And according to Marca via Bild, he will only put pen to paper on an extension if PSG include an exit clause.

That would mean Mbappe could secure a departure if a certain club – in this case Los Blancos – made a suitable bid.

PSG would therefore get their star man tied down to a new contract so he would not leave for free next summer.

And Mbappe would keep his employers happy while stopping himself from being frozen out of a dream transfer to the Bernabeu.

However, exit clauses are outlawed in Ligue 1.

So the arrangement cannot be written into the legal documents.

Instead, Mbappe would need to sort a verbal agreement with PSG bosses.

The relationship between the striker and the club is good and PSG chiefs will be reluctant to do anything that will scupper their chances to keeping Mbappe beyond next summer.

As things stand, he would only leave in the current transfer window with PSG’s blessing – although it is unlikely anyone will be able to afford him anyway due to the financial impact of coronavirus.

However, reports this week suggested a bust-up between the two parties as Mbappe went off on holiday.

Before that, president Nasser Al-Khelaifi stepped in to take over the talks to try and tie Mbappe down to the new deal.

A source told Get French Football News: “Nasser gets on very well with the family and has done since Kylian’s signing in 2017.

“There is a real respect between them.”

Any new deal is expected to see Mbappe rewarded with a slight pay rise from his current £430k-a-week pre-tax package.

But Mbappe is thought to be more concerned with the Parc des Princes project – and wants to see Achraf Hakimi and Gianluigi Donnarumma follow Georginio Wijnaldum into the club.

He scored 42 goals in 47 appearances across all competitions last season but it was a campaign that ended in disappointment for PSG after their Ligue 1 and Champions League failures.

PSG are particularly desperate not to allow Mbappe to leave with the 2022 World Cup being staged in Qatar, where PSG’s owner Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani is the head of state.
