“It’s understood that Mbappe earns around £17,000 per game, with bonuses added. But Mbappe, who is a patron of the association, is donating anything he earns,” Sports Illustrated reported, per an original French report in L’Equipe. “The donation will include the reported £265,000 bonus that the star is in line to earn should France win the tournament.”
Mbappe’s charity of choice is Preiers de Cordees association, which helps kids with disabilities participate in sports. (RELATED: Check Your Pulse If These Videos Of Croatia Celebrating After Their Shocking Win Don’t Pump You Up)
