10 highest-paid football players in Europe right now
- A look at the ten highest-paid football players in Europe.
#8 Kylian Mbappe- €20 million
Pundits call Kylian Mbappe a player for the future but he is already the present. The Frenchman is one of the best players in the world right now. At just 21 years of age, he has conquered the French top-flight and is already a World Cup winner.
Mbappe joined Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 on loan from AS Monaco. In 2018, PSG sealed the move permanently after they coughed up €180 million to secure his services. However, that's not all as the Parisians shell out close to €20 million in wages yearly for their starlet which means the Frenchman takes home €1.9 million gross per month.
With a host of elite clubs chasing Mbappe for his signature, the sum is only going to rise going forward. The PSG sensation has been touted as the heir to Cristiano Ronaldo and is expected to make a big switch to Real Madrid in the foreseeable future.
#7 Eden Hazard- €30 million
Eden Hazard sealed his dream move to Real Madrid in the summer of 2019. In an overhaul at the Bernabeu, Zinedine Zidane decided to bring the Belgian to the Spanish capital for €100 million from Chelsea.
Becoming Real's most expensive signing in recent times, Hazard got himself a lucrative contract which sees him earning €2.5 million gross per month. That takes the amount to €30 million yearly. The Belgian also took the iconic No. 7 which was once worn by Ronaldo.
After guiding the Blues to Europa League victory, Hazard was ready to embark on a new journey with his dream club. However, the winger is currently struggling with injuries and has already missed more games for Los Blancos than he ever did for Chelsea in his seven-year tenure.
