Ballin’ Footballer: 5 ways Kylian Mbappé spends his huge salary

Kylian Mbappé is one of the world’s biggest football stars. And he is definitely paid as such, earning an estimate of around $128 million per year.

Last year, Forbes listed the French footballer at the top of their list of “The World’s Highest-Paid Soccer Players in 2022.” Based on their list, Mbappé reportedly earns $110 million on the field and $18 million off the field.

As a 23-year-old earning that much, one has to wonder, what does this kid do with his money?

Here are five things that Kylian Mbappé spends on.

1. A Parisian home

Like any other star football player, Kylian Mbappé lives in a luxurious home.

According to several sources, the PSG player lives in a multi-story penthouse in Paris with beautiful views, including the Champs de Mars and the Eiffel Tower.

The entire property is reportedly worth $10.4 million.

In addition, his flat also includes 12 bedrooms, a basketball court, a library, and a jacuzzi on deck.

With all these amenities, Mbappé must certainly get the relaxation he needs when he’s not training or competing.

2. Trips and travel

When the Frenchman isn’t kicking it back in the comfort of his own home, Kylian Mbappé likes to spend his time vacationing around the world.

Earlier this year, he took a trip to New York with his PSG teammate and friend, Achraf Hakimi. He also has traveled with another teammate, Karim Benzema, to Greece.

3. Fast cars (to match his speed, of course)

For a guy who doesn’t have a driver’s license, Kylian Mbappé spends a lot of money on his extensive collection of luxury cars.

His most expensive car is his Ferrari 488 Pista, which is worth $565,000 — and this isn’t even the only Ferrari in his garage. He also reportedly owns a Ferrari Hybrid SF90 Stradale.

But he isn’t just a Ferrari kind of guy. In his collection, he is also known to have a Volkswagen (which he frequently takes to training), a Mercedes, an Audi, a BMW, and a Range Rover.

4. Keeping up with fashion trends

Mbappé is one of the most fashion-forward footballers. And apart from spending on clothes, one of the things he loves is collecting the hottest pairs of sneakers.

In 2019, the footballer starred in a Complex video where he went shoe shopping in LA. After talking a lot about sneakers, he purchased two rare pairs, worth around $1,225 for both.

5. Donating to charity

Even though Kylian Mbappé sports a rather lavish lifestyle, he still finds many ways to use his money to help others, as he is known to be a generous donor to several charities.

For instance, after France’s win at the 2018 World Cup, the star player famously donated all his earnings from the tournament — which totaled around $500,000 — to charity.

In addition, he also has his own foundation, ‘Inspired by KM,‘ which he established as a way to help children achieve their goals.

Indeed, Kylian Mbappé is definitely a football star that many look up to, but not only because of his successes and his lifestyle, but also with how he gives back.
