France attacking star Kylian Mbappé is reportedly on the brink of agreeing a new deal with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), that will make him the highest paid striker in the squad.

The new deal is to keep him at the club beyond his contract’s expiration in summer.

2021/2022 UEFA Champions League finalists Real Madrid have been heavily linked to the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner.

But local newspaper Le Parisien reported on Thursday that the 23-year-old is set to stay till 2024 on a contract worth 50 million euros (52.7 million dollars) net per year.

That will place him higher than Leo Messi who is earning $41 million annual net salary, including bonuses.

Brazilian Neymar who joined PSG from Barcelona in 2017, is being paid $36.5 million per season.
