Tiktuknu: Summary of the day in sports, 19.9 (Sport1)
Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are undoubtedly the two greatest footballers who have been in world football in the last 20 years.
But who is the best footballer today?
Opinions differ on this, but if we judge by the salary they receive, then Kylian Mbappe has overtaken the two giants and is the footballer who will earn the most money in 2022.
On the "Sportico" website, they analyzed the salaries of the footballers and determined: Mbappe's new contract, which he signed after a long saga in the summer, will make him the footballer who will earn the most money this year: $105 million net per season, not including the various sponsorships.
Mbappe is one of three Paris Saint-Germain players in the top four, with Cristiano Ronaldo still second despite being far from his prime.
Still in the top 10, at least in terms of salary.

According to the data, Ronaldo earns "only" 53 million dollars per season, but makes another 60 million dollars from endorsements, which puts him in second place with 113 million dollars a year compared to Mbappe's 125 million and Messi's 110 million.
Neymar is of course in fourth place and Mohamed Salah closes the top five.
Erling Holland, if you were wondering, is not even in the top ten unlike players like Eden Hazard and even Andres Iniesta.
