Who Is Kylian Mbappe?
Kylian Mbappe is a French international football player who plays for the money-rich French club Paris Saint Germain. He made his debut in 2015 and within 3 years, he has won a World Cup and has been labeled as the best young player in the world.
Mbappe is a naturally gifted player. His talent was obvious from a very young age. He is a versatile forward and can play on any forward position whether it be on the left or right flank or as a center forward.
Although his right foot is the stronger one, he could rely on his left foot as well. His speed makes him extremely dangerous on counter attacks.
The player doesn’t only have an eye for the goal. He could also set-up his team-mates for scoring. Mbappe’s dribbling and skills add to his set of abilities.
This fame and talent at this young age is the reason why Kylian Mbappe net worth is $80 million.
Kylian Mbappe’s father, Wilfried Mbappe, was a coach at AS Bondy. So naturally, he admitted his son to the same academy where he used to coach.
However, Mbappe was under his father’s colleague Antonio Riccardi who instantly knew that the boy is more than ordinary. Kylian’s dribbling and speed were better than other children at the academy. All he needed was grooming.
In a couple of years, he became famous among the youth scouts and got offers from big clubs like Real Madrid and Chelsea. But settled to go to AS Monaco at the time.
In 2015, Mbappe made his first-team debut for AS Monaco. Within a few months in 2016, he scored his first ever first-team goal becoming the youngest ever scorer for AS Monaco beating the previous record held by the French legend Thiery Henry.
The player rose to fame in the 2016-17 season when he became a regular for an AS Monaco side which won a Ligue 1 title and progressed to the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League.
Mbappe himself scored 26 goals which made him a star at the club and in France. The excellent performances earned him a place in the French international football team.
In the summer of 2017, AS Monaco’s French rival PSG came in and offered the club a fee of $182 million to allow him to come to the French capital.
Mbappe joined the newly arrived PSG team-mate Neymar and became the second most expensive player in football after the Neymar who recently took the first position on the list upon his transfer from FC Barcelona to PSG.
Neymar left Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi and formed a trio with Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe. The trio was lethal to opposing teams but couldn’t conquer the European football.
Kylian Mbappe scored a total 21 goals being under the shadow of Edinson Cavani and Neymar since both of them are much more experienced and mature forwards.
But for a 19-year-old, reaching this goal tally is an achievement. In the summers of 2018, Mbappe was called up to the World Cup in Russia.
He was crucial in the winning campaign of France and became the youngest ever scorer in the world cup and the second teenager to score a goal in a world cup final after the Brazilian Pele who holds the title of the greatest football player of all time.
Net Worth, Salary, And Income
Mbappe was born in 1998 and is only 19 years old. Usually, a 19 years old football player struggles to get a chance in the first team of a mediocre football club. This was not the case with Kylian Mbappe.
Kylian Mbappe net worth is $80 million which is huge considering that Neymar Jr’s net worth is $125 million when he is 26 years old and already one of the best players in the world.
However, he is still far behind Neymar when it comes to the salary he receives from the club. Mbappe is paid $26 million a year which is way lesser than what Neymar earns.
But this $26 million mark is an achievement as he has just started his career and his strike partner, the 30 years old Edinson Cavani earns the same.
The boy was a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo since he was a kid. Just like the Portuguese talisman, Mbappe has also signed a professional sponsorship contract with the Nike. This has increased his income massively.
