Kylian Mbappe is the present and future of world football.
The Paris Saint-Germain striker is already one of the finest players around and he’s still just 21-years-old.
His best years are likely ahead of him, but the Frenchman has already scored 84 goals and assisted another 48 in just 115 games for PSG.
When you’re averaging 1.15 goal involvements per game, your club is going to do everything they can to keep you, especially with Real Madrid watching Mbappe’s every move.
Los Blancos have long been touted as the superstar’s next destination, with the presence of Zinedine Zidane in the Spanish capital only fuelling the rumours.

But PSG have an ace up their sleeve; their wads of cash.
As per AS, the Ligue 1 champions are prepared to flex their financial muscle to keep ahold of the most valuable player on the planet.
He would also be earning a significant amount more than Neymar, with the Brazilian currently pocketing around €707,692-per-week (€36.8 million-per-year).
Were Mbappe to put ink onto paper, he would be earning a cool €980,769-per-week.
Real Madrid have already influenced Mbappe’s decision to reject two renewal offers from PSG, but their latest offer may be too good to turn down.
The Frenchman’s currently salary reportedly stands at around €15 million-per-year, so the 21-year-old will be more than trebling his pay packet if he opts to sign the deal.
It’s alright for some, isn’t it?
The sheer financial power of PSG is almost quite scary and the French side recently saw their sponsorship money from Nike increase from €25m to €75m.
However, the funding would likely be heavily decreased if Mbappe of Neymar were to depart the club in the near future.
A hefty portion of PSG’s future rests on Mbappe’s shoulders and they know it.
