Kylian Mbappe has agreed to take a massive pay cut to join Real Madrid this summer.

The 25-year-old, who earns 25m euros net (£21.4m) in Paris, will clear 15m euros net (£12.8m) a season at Madrid, still making him the club’s top earner despite the huge salary cut.

Mbappe has agreed terms with the Spanish club although neither Paris Saint-Germain nor Madrid will make any formal statement while both could still meet in the Champions League.

Despite losing out in terms of basic wage Mbappe will be paid a sizeable signing on fee understood to be over 100m euros (£85.6m) and will keep an 80 per cent share of image rights on any new commercial deals he signs after becoming a Madrid player. This breaks from the normal 50-50 split the club usually imposes on new players.

Mbappe is expected to wear Luka Modric’s number 10 shirt next season with the Croatian 38-year-old not being offered a new deal.
