Real Madrid ?agree to sign Kylian Mbappe?s brother Ethan, 17, as part of deal to lure PSG superstar

Spanish club, Real Madrid have reportedly agreed on a deal to sign Kylian Mbappe’s brother, Ethan Mbappe to lure the PSG superstar to also join the club. 

 

The 25-year-old French superstar is out of contract at Paris Saint-Germain this summer. But he has since agreed to join Los Blancos for an £85.6million signing-on fee, though he will take an £8.5m pay cut.

Now it has emerged that Mbappe and his family requested for the Spanish giants to sign his younger brother, Ethan, as part of the deal. 

 

Kylian had reportedly already signed with Madrid but his family asked for this personal bonus to be added to his pre-contract agreement, as per Ok Diario director Eduardo Inda. 

 

 

Ethan plays for PSG’s U19s and has broken into the first-team set-up this campaign, making three appearances. 

 

 

While he is still only 17, he made his debut in December and it is understood that he would join Real Madrid Castilla, the Spanish side’s B team, who play in the third tier. 

 

Mail Sport revealed the details of Kylian’s sensational agreement to join the Bernabeu outfit after seven years of them trying to catch him. 

 

The transfer saga between him, Madrid, and PSG has been the longest-running and highest-profile one in football in recent years. 

 

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

 

He has agreed on 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 £85.6m and will keep an 80 percent 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.

 

 

He is expected to wear Luke Modric’s number 10 shirt next season with the Croatian not being offered a new deal. However, the 38-year-old has reportedly been offered a chance to stay on with their coaching staff.
