Kylian Mbappe has confessed he earns an indecent amount of money playing for Paris Saint-Germain.
Mbappe is considered to be one of the world’s finest young talents on a football pitch and looks on course to claim a Ballon d’Or in the not so distant future.
Along with becoming the world’s second most expensive footballer, only behind team-mate Neymar, the forward was handed a bumper five-year contract.
According to recent reports from Football Leaks, a whistleblowing website, the 19-year-old’s deal is worth roughly €55m after tax.
“It’s truly indecent for me, who comes from a fairly modest family,” he told RTS. “It’s true that it’s indecent but the market is like that. The world of football works like that.”
“I’m not going to revolutionise football. I’m in a system. You have to know how to respect it and to stay in place.”
Following France’s World Cup success in the summer, L’Equipe reported that Mbappe made €439,000.
