As per reports, the world cup winner will be drawing a salary of around £4 million, not including a signing bonus of a whopping £100 million!
If the numbers are accurate, this will put him in the league of some of the highest-paid athletes in the world! This brings us to the question: What is the Frenchman’s net worth in his brief footballing career? We find out.
Net Worth and Current Salary
As per reports, the French forward is rumoured to be worth around £140 million, which includes the earnings from his new salary, endorsements, and more. Before his renewal, Mbappe earned a paycheck of around £22 million a year, which was recently doubled to £48 million.
Along with being the face of Paris Saint-Germain, Mbappe has signed up with some of the best brands in the world, and this includes partnerships with Nike and EA Sports. Hublot, another brand he is associated with, is said to have paid him £913,774 million to be their global ambassador.
Mbappe has also been the face of the FIFA franchise in recent times, recently making it to the cover of the long-standing video game this year. As per Forbes, Mbappe took home almost £11 million in endorsements alone.
Properties and Cars
While not much is known about Mbappe’s real-estate investment, he is said to own a luxurious apartment in Madrid. The 23-year old also reportedly bought the house in Monaco, which he was leasing during his tenure. Currently, he is said to have leased out a penthouse apartment in Paris.

The Frenchman has often showcased his philanthropic side, like the time he donated his entire World Cup bonus of $500,000 to a charity that supports disabled children.
