Ligue 1 table-toppers Paris Saint-Germain will have to pay the full €180million fee to turn Kylian Mbappe‘s loan into a permanent transfer this summer.

You may think you already knew this given Monaco and PSG had signed a pre-agreement, making the Parisians obligated to buy the forward regardless when the season is out, but there was one potential caveat, or road bump in the deal.

Remarkably, the fully-fledged contractual terms between the two sides included a clause, whereby, if PSG were relegated from Ligue 1 this season, they would not have to pay the massive price and as such the transfer would have been called off.

However, after a comfortable 5-2 romp over Strasbourg on Saturday, Unai Emery’s men – who are runaway leaders at the top of the table – confirmed, mathematically, they could not go down!

Relegation, of course, was never going to happen but PSG fans will be excited, as well as the wider footballing world, that the deal is now completely set in stone.
