Kylian Mbappe, the French Ligue 1 top player and top scorer, landed an international exclamation point with his hat trick in the 2022 World Cup for France, but the secret had been out for quite some time.

Mbappe already had graced the cover of Time magazine in 2018. 

He’s now comfortably among the world’s top five players and is set to raise his profile further when he departs Paris Saint Germain (PSG) for Real Madrid in the coming months.

Only 25 years old, Mbappe is well placed to take advantage of everything a world-class athlete is offered.

Kylian Mbappe Net Worth

Kylian Mbappe’s net worth is listed anywhere from $120 million to $180 million.

Forbes reported Mbappe’s net worth to be $120 million in 2023, good enough for No. 3 on the list for the highest-paid athletes in the world.

Blessed with an amazing set of soccer skills, Mbappe’s personality serves to raise his potential much further. It’s no wonder you’ll often see his name listed at top online sportsbooks for various betting markets.

If, as expected, he does land with Real Madrid, his image alone will be worth another massive promotional financial stake.

Multiple outlets reported Mbappe’s net worth this year at roughly $180 million, a number that figures to dramatically expand in the years ahead.

The $180 million stands as a natural enhancement from the year before since Mbappe continues to prove his value on the pitch.

Salary & Career Earnings

Mbappe’s salary continues a lucrative earnings history for the French superstar, reported to be making $95 million for this season and, according to capology now has career earnings topping $346 million.

The soccer world is focused intently on Mbappe’s next move.

His contract with PSG expires at the end of June 2024, and, with the negotiating window now open (a contract expiring within six months allows the player to discuss a contract with new teams), Real Madrid holds the advantage.

According to The Athletic, Real Madrid’s attempt to lure Mbappe in 2022 came with a signing bonus of $165 million and a yearly salary of $33 million.

The total compensation for Mbappe’s next deal figures only to go higher.

The BBC reported Mbappe is prepared to go to Real Madrid under a contract that pays more than $16 million annually with a hefty $162 million signing bonus.

Also significant in the proposal is Mbappe’s rights to a percentage of his image rights.

The Mirror reported the deal is already done, citing Spanish media outfit Marca.

Mbappe’s Biggest Offer

During the summer of 2023, Mbappe found more evidence that he was going to become a much wealthier man.

Playing for Real Madrid is an athlete-based decision; taking the absurd amount of money reportedly offered him by the Saudi soccer club Al Hilal would have been a financial decision.

The reported one-year offer was just more than a $200 million salary but came with other sponsorships and image rights driving the offer north of $700 million.

And it would have come with the player’s option to leave as a free agent to joining Real Madrid this summer.

Mbappe turned it down, stayed with PSG, and now appears ready to jump to Real Madrid.

Endorsements & Sponsors

Mbappe’s income from endorsements includes deals with Nike, Louis Vuitton and the watchmaker Hublot, as well as past contract agreements with the FIFA (now EA Sports) video games.

His decision to reach a 10-year, $187 million deal with Nike in 2019 has paid off handsomely. The agreement requires Mbappe to continue playing in a top-level league (PSG and Real Madrid certainly qualify).

Mbappe also is in partnership with Sorare, a crypto-centric fantasy game.

Business Ventures

In addition to an Instagram account (more than 100 million followers) that brings him about $1.2 million for each sponsored post (!), he established a production company called Zebra Valley in 2022.

Based in Los Angeles, Zebra Valley produces themes associated with sports, technology, music and arts, as well as youth culture. The company also reached a multiyear deal with the NBA to produce content.

Conclusion

Mbappe is living every bit of his celebrity life, owning a place in the heart of Paris with a view of the Eiffel Tower as well as one in Madrid, reportedly his next soccer-playing destination.

As an immense, top-five soccer talent with an engaging persona and a good dose of common sense, Mbappe is an athlete to follow as his career continues its meteoric rise.

It would be no surprise to see him join the billionaires club in the next five to 10 years.
