The best-paid footballer in the world
A particularly high wealth therefore for Mbappé, whose main income comes from the PSG football team. The French striker would become, thanks to his contract extension signed this summer, the best-paid footballer in the world.
Emerging at more than 131 million euros before tax according to the newspaper Forbes, he would be ahead of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, a first since 2014.
Mbappé number 1
Although the calculation is particularly difficult, the site would have estimated the wealth of the Parisian to be more than 150 million euros. A colossal sum that would already make him the richest French footballer.
According to this ranking, Mbappé would be placed in front of Thierry Henry, second in the ranking with a wealth amounting to 130 million euros. Paul Pogba would complete the podium, the Turinese would have accumulated 125 million euros during his career.
If the absence of Zinedine Zidane may seem strange, the 1998 world champion would be placed just behind 'the pick' in view of his fortune estimated at 120 million euros.
The patrimony of 150 million 'Kyk's', would already make him the ninth richest footballer in the world. He would still be far from Lionel Messi (600 million), Cristiano Ronaldo (500 million) and David Beckham (450 million).
