Kylian Mbappé net worth: Salary, sponsorships and image rights revealed

Kylian Mbappé, currently of French Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain, is one of the biggest stars in world football. He burst onto the scene in 2015 playing for Monaco, and a switch to PSG in August 2017 would elevate him onto the global stage. Since then, he has became a profitable asset for any sponsor wanting him to show off their particular brand.

Furthermore, the pure footballing ability of Mbappé comes at a price, with PSG, known for their large financial power, paying him a huge weekly wage. However, with his contract running out in one year, the future of the Frenchman remains up for debate, with a switch to La Liga giants Real Madrid seemingly an inevitable either now or next year.

Mbappé would surely see an increase in the wage he receives currently, whilst he would likely encounter greater sponsorship opportunities to improve his finances even more. With La Liga holding a greater worldwide appeal in comparison to Ligue 1, Mbappé could be soon set to embark on yet another major step in his career, both on and off the pitch.

Whilst we all know about the on-field ventures of football players, understanding how they perform off the pitch in relation to matters such as sponsorship and image rights is something every average football supporter would surely be interested in.

Forbes places Cristiano Ronaldo as the highest-paid athlete in the world at this moment in time, with the Portugal international earning $46million for his pure footballing achievements, in addition to a whopping $90million for all off-the-field endorsements and sponsorships. The question is, how close is Kylian Mbappé to matching those type of figures? Let's find out.

Kylian Mbappé: Salary

Over the last year, Forbes has revealed that Mbappé earned a total of $100million over the past year based upon on-the-pitch earnings.

Whilst this clearly an excellent return, it still isn't the greatest figure on Forbes' list regards to on-the-pitch earnings. Phil Mickleson and Dustin Johnson, who both switched across to the Saudi-backed LIV Golf, headline that list on $104million and $102million respectively, whilst boxer Canelo Alvarez can match Mbappé on the $100million mark.
