According to the Spanish press, to have Kylian Mbappé and Erling Haaland in his team from next summer, Real Madrid would have to pay the modest sum of 852 million euros, spread over six seasons.
They are two aliens, the present and the future of world football. So obviously, it is expensive. Eager to recruit Kylian Mbappé (22) and Erling Haaland (20), according to the Spanish daily As, Real Madrid know what to expect: if it wants to afford the two European gems, the White House will have to invest nearly a billion euros! 852 million more precisely, the sum that would be necessary to pay if Florentino Pérez, the president of Real, makes the two players sign a contract spanning the next six seasons.
Wages would explode the operation
The Spanish media details this astronomical amount as follows. € 300m for gross transfers from Mbappé and Haaland, on the assumption that each costs € 150 – specialist site Transfermarkt currently assesses the French international from Paris Saint-Germain at € 180m, up from € 110 for the Norwegian international Borussia Dortmund.
An amount to which it would be necessary to add the 432 million possible salaries of Mbappé (i.e. 72 gross per year during these six seasons) and the 120 million Haaland (i.e. 20 per year during this period), salary aspirations put forward by As. 300 million euros in transfers + 552 million euros in salaries, a pharaonic investment if Real Madrid, also hard hit economically by the pandemic, wishes to bring together under his white tunic the two attackers, who walk on the water currently and have for them to be under 23 years old.
