$772 million. That’s how much a Saudi soccer team called Al-Hilal just offered French star Kylian Mbappé to leave Paris Saint-Germain. And no, that’s not $772 million over 10 years. Or over 5 years.
Al-Hilal just offered Kylian Mbappé $772 million to play for them for ONE SEASON!
If he accepts, in the 12 months of the deal Kylian would make:
- $64 million per month
- $2 million per day
- $90,000 per hour
- $1,400 per minute
- $25 per second
Let me repeat that.
If he accepts this deal, Kylian would make $64 million PER MONTH. His current salary at Paris Saint-Germain pays $50 million PER YEAR.
For additional perspective, literally earlier today Jaylen Brown signed the largest contact in NBA history. Jaylen’s record-breaking $304 million, five-year deal breaks down to $61 million PER YEAR.
Here are some additional points of perspective:
In 2020 Patrick Mahomes signed the largest contract in NFL history. That was a 10-year, $503 million deal. Average annual salary = $50.3 million.
In 2019 Mike Trout signed the largest contract in MLB history. That was a 12-year, $426 million deal. Average annual salary = $35.5 million.
To get the deal done, Al-Hilal offered Paris Saint-Germain a record-setting $333 million transfer fee. That would just represent the fee paid to PSG for releasing Kylian. The previous record for a transfer fee was $260 million, which PSG paid to Barcelona for Neymar in 2017.
It took me 8 minutes and 23 seconds to write this article. If I had Kylian’s deal, I would have just made $11,775. And I’m not even counting the time I took to do background research and reading.
