July 17, 2018

Sports Illustrated reported that Mbappe earns about $22,000 per game with bonuses. The news outlet also reported that Mbappe received a $350,000 bonus if France won the tournament.
The French national team did just that, defeating Croatia 4-2 in the World Cup final on Sunday.
"Kylian, he's a great person," said Sebastien Ruffin, the general manager of Premiers de Cordee. "When his schedule allows it, he intervenes for us with pleasure. He has a very good [relationship] with children, he always finds the right [words] to encourage them. I sometimes even feel that [he] takes more pleasure to play with the kids than the kids themselves."
