Successful football careers can open doors to limitless economic opportunities, including investments in businesses and real estate, creating a secure financial future for players and their families. 

Additionally, football's global popularity generates significant revenue for clubs, leagues, and industries, making it a crucial contributor to economic growth and job creation worldwide.

L'Equipe, a reputable French newspaper, has produced a list of the highest earners in Ligue 1, as well as the earnings of players from across Europe. Unsurprisingly, five English Premier League players make the top 10 list, which excludes contractual bonuses.  

The list is given below 

1. Kylian Mbappé is the world's highest-paid player, earning €6 million per month at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).

Mbappé is paid more than twice as much as the second highest-paid player, Harry Kane, who makes €2.1 million per month at Bayern Munich.  

Mbappé is in the final year of his contract with PSG, where he earned an annual gross salary of €72 million after signing a lucrative three-year contract in 2022.  
Parisian club PSG offers to prevent Mbappé's free transfer, but he's set to leave this summer, potentially joining Real Madrid as their highest earner. 

2. Harry Kane, the England captain, is currently second on the list, earning €2.1 million after joining Bayern Munich from Tottenham Hotspur last summer. 

3. Manchester City tandem Kevin de Bruyne is ranked third on the list, earning €2.02 million per month. 

4. Erling Haaland, a Norwegian international, is considered Manchester City's highest earner due to contractual bonuses, with a monthly income of €1.9 million.

5. David Alaba, an Austrian player, earns €1.88 million monthly due to joining Real Madrid on a free transfer from Bayern Munich, resulting in no cash requirements.
