Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) superstar Kylian Mbappe is one of the most coveted players in world football at the moment. Since bursting into the spotlight during the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the Frenchman has gone on to become one of the best in the world.
Mbappe is currently shining for France in the 2022 FIFA World Cup. He has already scored five goals in the tournament and is leading the race for the Golden Boot.
Apart from his exploits with the French national team, Mbappe has been impressive with his club side PSG as well.
He joined the Parisians back in 2017 for an eventual fee of €180 million. Since then, he has scored 190 goals and provided 93 assists in 237 games for the Ligue 1 giants.
Mbappe's contract with the French club was set to expire in the summer of 2022 and a move to Real Madrid seemed imminent for the 23-year-old. However, after a protracted negotiation process, Nasser Al-Khelaifi's side tied him down to a new three-year-contract.
Astonishing details of the lucrative deal have now emerged. He is the Parisians' highest-paid player despite the presence of Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr. in the squad. The 2018 World Cup winner currently earns more than a million per week. Here are the full details of his current deal with PSG (via Capology):
Contract length: Three Years
Total value of the deal: $224,120,000 (€216,000,000)
Yearly Salary: $74,706,581 (€72,000,000)
Weekly Salary: $1,436,665 (€1,384,615)
