PSG: This humiliating ranking for Kylian Mbappé

Top scorer in Ligue 1 last season, Kylian Mbappé, however, did not score enough to be as profitable as his competitors for the Golden Shoe title.

It is the study conducted this Friday by the specialized site SportingPedia which manages to push the French striker, the least profitable financially speaking of all the candidates for the title of top European scorer. It was Robert Lewandowski who won this title in 2021-2022 thanks to his 35 goals scored with Bayern Munich. With his salary of 20 million euros per year, the Pole costs 574,000 euros per goal scored in the Bundesliga. A calculation that was passed on to the PSG striker. And his huge annual salary of 24 ME, despite his 28 goals scored in Ligue 1, makes him the most expensive player paid on goal, or 900,000 euros each time he shakes the net on French pitches. Karim Benzema, for example, is much more profitable with 622,000 euros per goal scored, in this ranking which must obviously be taken with a grain of salt. This does not count goals scored in other competitions, or decisive actions which are not necessarily goals.

Mbappé’s salary increased again

It should be noted that, in the European Top10, it is the Czech striker Patrick Schick, from Bayern Leverkusen, who is the most profitable with 208,000 euros per goal scored. Further behind, the best deal in Ligue 1 is made by Rennes, who could count on an amazing Martin Terrier last season, and whose goal cost “only” 50,000 euros compared to his inevitably more modest salary. A ranking that should not work out for the PSG striker since his salary has taken a serious increase, from 24 ME annually, to 42 million euros now. Suffice to say that it will take an incredible rain of goals not to keep the first place in the rankings which will not make the Parisian leaders tremble. PSG do not look at the expense with regard to Kylian Mbappé, and it is not the number of goals in Ligue 1 that will decide whether the season of the world champion and that of his club will be successful in 2022-2023.
