According to El Pais, Mbappe was presented with Real Madrid ‘s fourth and final offer in mid – March, totaling a € 180 million signature bonus and a € 40 million net salary per year. But only 50% of the rights to his image. Allegedly, this was a surprise for the 23-year-old striker and his team, who were unaware of the demand for his image rights. Image rights, which affect sponsorship, are in themselves worth many millions to a player like Mbappe.

The report states that this led the French national team player to reconsider things and reopen negotiations with the Parisian club, which is ready to make a similar offer, but cede all rights to the picture. At the moment, Mbappe’s choice is uncertain, and the rights to the picture seem to open the possibility of torpedoing the deal from the point of view of Real Madrid. But what is the striker doing in Madrid?
