Thanks to his XXL contract signed with Paris Saint-Germain, forward Kylian Mbappé has established himself as the highest paid player in the world in 2022-2023 according to the American magazine Forbes. However, in terms of sponsors, the French international is far behind Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Kylian Mbapp, the highest paid in the world.
One more proof of the status that Paris Saint-Germain grants to Kylian Mbappé! As we know, in order to retain the French international, the reigning French champions did not look to waste when it came to extending his contract until June 2025.
And thanks to this new XXL contract, the former mongasque simply stands out as the highest paid player in the world, according to information from the serious American economic magazine Forbes this Friday.
Mbappé breaks Messi-Ronaldo domain
I could well say it right away, it’s a real earthquake in the world of football! For 8 years, this ranking was always dominated by Paris Saint-Germain attacking midfielder Lionel Messi or Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo. But during the financial year 2022-2023, Mbappé will receive a total of 131 million euros (some commissions are foreseen for his agents), including 18.5 million euros linked to his sponsors.
Propelled to the top thanks to his massive contract with Paris, the former Mongasque is ahead of Messi (€123m), Ronaldo (€103m), Neymar (€89m), Mohamed Salah (€54m ), Erling Hland (40 million euros), Robert Lewandowski (36M€), Eden Hazard (32M€), Andrés Iniesta (31M€) and finally Kevin De Bruyne (30M€). An honorary title that counts in relation to his importance in Paris.
Another world in terms of sponsors
Despite this first place, Mbappé is still very far from the world of Ronaldo and Messi in terms of sponsors. While the Portuguese and the Argentine receive respectively 61 million and 56 million euros thanks to their contracts with brands, the Habs must therefore just be satisfied of 18.5 million euros at this level. Suffice it to say that the Parisian still has a lot of room for improvement in developing his image…
