Kylian Mbappe’s future was a huge talking point in the 2021/22 season.
The Frenchman was in the last year of his contract with Paris Saint-Germain and, with Real Madrid heavily interested, it looked as if he would make the move to Real Madrid.
However, Mbappe decided to stay at PSG and signed a lucrative three-year extension with the French giants.
Mbappe was given a mammoth pay-rise which saw him become the highest-paid player in the world.
But how do his wages compare to the world’s best strikers?
17 strikers feature in the top 100 and you can view how much they earn below…
17. Romelu Lukaku | Inter Milan (On loan from Chelsea) | £166,352-per-week
16. Memphis Depay | Barcelona | £168,946-per-week
15. Sebastian Haller | Bourssia Dortmund | £178,350-per-week
14. Darwin Nunez | Liverpool | £179,423-per-week
13. Roberto Firmino | Liverpool | £180,000-per-week
12. Lautaro Martinez | Inter Milan | £180,134-per-week
11. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang | Barcelona | £185,809-per-week
10. Harry Kane | Tottenham Hotspur | £200,000-per-week

2. Cristiano Ronaldo | Manchester United | £515,385-per-week
1. Kylian Mbappe | Paris Saint-Germain | £1.473,984-per-week
Mbappe’s wage is just ridiculous. He earns almost 3x more per-week than Ronaldo in second place.
Benzema, who is expected to win his first Ballon d’Or trophy later this year, rounds out the podium spots.
Martial, despite only scoring twice in the 2021/22 season, is the seventh highest-paid striker in the world.
Kane is one of the Premier League’s best strikers and just sneaks into the top 10, earning a cool £200,000-per-week.
Those that finished just outside the top 10 include Liverpool duo, Nunez and Firmino.
While Lukaku took a substantial pay-cut to re-join Inter Milan on loan for the 2022/23 season and is now the 17th highest-paid striker in the world.
