Surprise.. Mbappe’s contract with Real Madrid includes a release clause

The Cadena Cope network confirmed that Kylian Mbappe’s contract with Real Madrid includes a release clause, but it is not a cause for concern. On the contrary, it reassures the Royal Club that the player will continue at the Santiago Bernabeu.

On Monday, Real Madrid announced an official contract with Mbappe, with a contract extended until the summer of 2029, in a free transfer deal after the end of his contract with Paris Saint-Germain.

According to the latest report, the Spanish club placed a penalty clause worth one billion euros in Mbappe’s contract to protect him from any possibility of leaving in the next five years.

In general, this is a consistent strategy of the Real Madrid management in recent years, as the penalty clause is also present in the contracts of most stars such as Vinicius Junior, Rodrigo and Jude Bellingham.

Of course, there is no club around the world that can pay a billion dollars to sign a player, and thus the release clause reassures the management that the stars will continue until the end of their contracts.

In the same context, the Spanish network said that Mbappe’s salary with Real Madrid will be 30 million euros annually, making him the highest paid in the Merengue locker room.

The French international will benefit from a transfer bonus of up to 150 million euros, and will also receive 70% of the image rights, which is a huge percentage that Real Madrid does not usually grant to its players.
